Interesting John, I saw this one on the same day :-)
Also interesting is how film worked better than digital with the Tilbury light. Great photo.

She was just part of the landscape from my window for years. Thanks for the link.

That's right AMOK211, it was tobacco smuggling. Broken up in 2003. Cheers, Aleksi

I'm not sure, but i think this one ends her days in the mid 90s, staining in a dock at Sestao (up the estuary in Bilbao Port, Spain). The hull was painted in black, and the name was quite blurred, but i think she's the one you pictured back in 1986. I've heard she was caught entering the port with no lights. Smuggling probably. She's no more at the dock in Sestao, probably she was taken and laid down in 2002 or 2003.
