I can't tell, I've never been down there! :-D
In fact, I've never even set a foot on a container vessel. But you know that already.
So I was wondering...

Nono, always from above, never creep around in places like this yuck ! :-D
Jens Boldt on Jan 09, 2008 22:11 (10 years ago)
Ah, taken from above... I thought you crept deep down in the cargo hold to take pictures. :-D
I was wondering what could be seen there...
Cornelia Klier on Jan 09, 2008 22:07 (10 years ago)
Not on dark, just look down from above
Jens Boldt on Jan 09, 2008 21:56 (10 years ago)
How did you ever get down there in the first place?
And for what purpose? Shooting mice in the dark? :-D
Cornelia Klier on Jan 09, 2008 21:47 (10 years ago)
Yes, I'd only have photos of other un-seen parts of ships - eeh... well deep inside the cargo-holds :p

:-D :-D :-D
Thanks, Cornelia!
This is kind of makeshift.
As my underwater-camera was under repair at that time I waited till they had emptied the drydock to get the whole ship. :lol:

That's an absolutely amazing view, a special one for those who demand that the whole ship must be seen, on shipspotting and here, even underwater-section visible HEHE 8-)
