Out on the water for most of the day, flat seas touched 36 knots no one esle around it was a fantastic day.

Finished up pottering up the Fal and came across 8 ships laid up. Deep water moorings here for them but never seen any for years. In the last two months 8 appear!! Threr seem to be car carriers, the rest bulk carriers I think. Sure sign of the times.

Never posted pics before so I hope this works. This should be the link.

Hopefully you have the "Silver Constellation" down there Crew have had a rum deal and have not been paid virtually "mutinied" when she was up on the Clyde and refused to lift anchor in an attempt to get paid (and fed)
were lured away from the anchorage with the promise of payment and a relief crew but last we heard all promises had been broken and food supplies and ciggies running desperately short.
vessel owned ? by chinese entrepeneur and chartered by a Canadian Co
