Beautifull container vessel. Those where the good days for these vessels.

Hello Allan,

This is more like it; I knew you must have some great shots of these Bay boats.

All the best,

Great shot and possibly could be described as vintage now that these vessels, like the cargoliner, are a piece of shipping history.
