Here today 08/08-2010 is a day of mourning for an otherwise very proud shipyard town Fredericia. Fredericia Shipyard Dock 1 left here Sunday afternoon the city's proud shipyard to go out on a journey down to Besiktas Group family yard just south of Istanbul. Dock 1 which has been completely renovated, "however lacking some new paint" is to be used as Repair dock at Besiktas new shipyard only a few years old.
There were greeted so many people up to take leave of the dock and you could clearly feel and hear the people that it was with great shame that we now see the shipyard move to Odense Lindo, but we can unfortunately only thank our dear old town council for that.
On the tour that goes around Skagen to the English Channel,there comes one more tug to assist aft, it will follow through the English channel, Biscay Bay and around the Strait of Gibraltar then Carlo Martello continues alone the rest of the way through the Mediterranean up to Turkey .
There are under the whole trip five men onboard the dock to fit generators and pumps etc, they were equipped with food and drink and residential container.
Eta for the dock and the tug is 08/09-2010 at the Turkish shipyard.
Boring day for a ship photographer to see how your hobby disappears, however, there was a very fun thing shown in the picture, namely a giant Turkish flag that was set Saturday morning, so we were then in no doubt where it was going
Good trip south and Thanks for all the ships you have dock and made it possible to capture with the camera.
