Hi Les,

The older tankers have more class than the new types ( stemliners). I sailed on both types but prefered the older class. More work bit a better ship. :-x

Hi Dave,
It must be happening to me too then. Rotterdam in the seventies was heaven for me!

Great shot of this historic ship. It was the first tanker ever build in Poland.

Another nice one. I don't know if it is nostalgia or what but these older ships are really nice looking and they have a lot of character. I guess that might be a sign I am growing old! :-D
