That´s true. :-) And honestly speaking it served me a long time. :-D

Yeah, the she´s a Sto-Ro and also Ro-Lo vessel. Planned to carry forestproducts like paper reels, woodpulp and also bulk cargoes. Will post a couple pics of her Swedish sister FINNPINE perhaps tomorrow.

Interesting layout, that ship ! And a good bye to your camera. Something, out of something bad, comes something good.. in this case, you have a chance to buy a better camera with good luck :-D
