Hi Timsen,

thanks for your comment, too. And thanks for the link.

Concerning pics of the progress of the work please have a look at my answer to Michael's comment.

Hi Michael,

thanks for your comment.

Well, I'll try my best. Unfortunately I've time to go out spotting only once a week, which means this week I can go to the harbour on Saturday. And if she's been drydocked meanwhile then I'll most probably only get stern-shots. But we will see...

Yes, impressive shots, just like those of the "Sormovskiy 45" (some also to be found on which is actually being repaird in Brunsbuettel. In fact, updates on the progress of the work on the "Rika" would be appreciated.

Hi Jens,
thanks for posting this shots. Before it will be better it must first be worse. Please let us know how the work goes on.

Hello Mark!
That's true. But I'll still have to find out when repairs will be finished.

Mark on Nov 03, 2007 11:23 (11 years ago)
Interesting shot!
I would be fine to see her after repairing.
