||Palletised Cargo Ships|
12,750 g.t. built 1977 by Hanjin at Pusan.
This Gorthon Line ship when I first saw her was a conventional bulker with 2 travelling gantry cranes but appears to have had conversion work done to make her a palletized cargo ship since.
Seen arriving in the Thames from Canada on 11/6/05.
*Note to admin: this IS a palletised cargo ship, please don't move it again!*
-Admin comment: Yes, this is a palletised, but it seems the admin team may start moving all photos of that category to anothers in the nearity. Some were already moved... For somekind of confusion, please contact Allan!
|Vessel type:||Pallet Carrier|

that one isn't a scan, Phil was referring to my marine band scanner.
Unfortunately what you see there is what the middle of a June day in England looked like, no light, no colour, and occasional drizzle!
The Dimage Z3 I've had for a couple of months I find gives very accurate colour reproduction, I leave the colour balance setting on 'natural'. I could set it on 'vivid' but hey.... why spoil the ambience of the English weather, if all the shots on here had blue skys that might even get boring :lol:
What I submit on here is as it was.
nice shot, really good for being scanned. thanks for the info too, she looks nice, could use some better paint though.. |

Hi John, the Alida Gorthon together with sisterships Ingrid Gorthon and Margit Gorthon were all converted in 1991. They still transport forest products but, as you say, they now have a sideport pallet loading system rather than the lift on lift off gantry system.
I trust you are putting your new scanner to good use :-)
