I agree John, somehow they don't look the part to handle the large containers.
Tell you a story, on Saturday I think Cobham was on the front of Contship Australis with a line on, a foreign guy says to me how can that small ship pull the big one, has the big one broken !!,
I did my best to explain but I dont think he understood, I had to smile.
All the best

Great shot Ken but I have to say I don't find these two new arrivals to the Thames at all aesthetically pleasing.
Ahhh for the likes of Vanquisher and Avenger in the days of yore..... at least they didn't go everywhere backwards :lol:
