Yes, you were quite right, Andrew. As she was again within the range of MarineTraffic AIS (at Gibraltar) one could read from her itineraries history, that on September 18 she sailed directly to an Eleusis Bay shipyard and remained there until November 14, when she departed for Antwerp.

Thank you Andrew for your interest. She may have been laid up for some time but at the moment she (now recognized as MSC SEATTLE) is happily working again - recorded early last night (Nov 16) south of Sicily on her way to Antwerp (ETA Nov 20).

As Cornelia said its always interesting to see shots of empty container vessels, AISLIVE show her still in Piraeus so i wonder if she has been laid up?

Thanks for shring

You really did not?? Well, that makes me feel better... :-)

Yes, if the light was better then... but I think it is still something, to be able to see a ship like that ! I did not yet have the luck, I must admit :-)

Thanks for your comment, Cornelia. Yes, impressive sight, only wish that the light had been better. :-D

It is always interesting to see these impressive ships without containers on deck and more out of the water - great stuff :-D
