Wonderful feeder, on a surprisevisit in Larvik Norway, 29/7 2008. Looks like something accured during cargohandling.
Me? I was just happy we got there in time before the sun set....

Taipan and Tongan yes, and the new Sietas - I only have seen Vera Rambow without paint at all. And soon going to try myself, Sietas 170 type and then I can compare with the Peterswerft-stuff and the romanian-licensed stuff by Damen shipyard.

Regarding structural integrity, well as long we won't the Taipan see doing a MSC-Naöoli alike, it's fine !

Sure would! Collosal forces. actually i was very surprised to see her like this.
Nice series of ships, this one. Would really like to see the new sietas-ship one day

Thanks, wouldn't it be very hard for the ship's structure, to leave it like that longer ?

My thought was that she had work on rudder/propeller, but did not seen that way. She laid there another 24 hours, so it must have been shomething.

Nice angular views of containers - but the ship looks not too well balanced sort of - stern out. I hope they didn't sail like that :-D
