Hello Malte,

thinking about it for a while I remembered that in March of 2007 I still was only taking photos of cruise liners. :-D
At that time I wasn't much interested in cargo shipping... :-o

So no wonder I couldn't remember Tourcoing...

Best regards,

Hello Jens,
I'm not sure how long she was exactly here last year. I only know she entered the dry dock 16/03/08 (see: )
and after docking I think she layed in the Werfthafen.

Best regards,

Hi, thank you, Malte!

As for me I've no idea why she is in drydock. Didn't know she was drydocked last year (For several weeks? Where have I been? :-o )

Best regards,

Hello Jens,
very nice picture of this vessel at Blohm & Voss. Has anyone an idea why TOURCOING is again in the dry dock? During Spring 2007 she was already for some weeks at B&V...

Best regards,
