1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Prolific Dutch photographers in the 19 sixties and seventies on: October 23, 2021, 02:12:30 pm
I worked in and around the Port of London for over 50 years. I have produced six books with my photographs (not just London but all over Europe) which are available from me (UK only) or from Amazon.

Many from my slides scanned over 18 months.

Sorry to report the passing of member Doug Shaw. I understand it was just after last Christmas. Due to him not having any family it has only just come to light. He hadn't posted anything recently, but their is a lasting legacy of photos on this sight. RIP.

Tower Wharf is upriver from Bevan's Wharf and Northfleet Terminal (formerly known as Bowaters) is downriver from Bevan's.

Northfleet terminal is not a disused wharf. The reason Astoria was shifted to Tower Wharf was to allow a ship to berth there! The tug has returned to Portugal as local sources inform me she was not powerful enough for the job. Astor did sail yesterday - giving ETA Aliaga 17th.

I have always lived opposite Tilbury (Gravesend) and I am going to stick my neck out and say she didn't call here as I have no record of seeing, or photographing her. I think it would be unlikely that I would have missed such an event. Hopefully, one of the other regular photographers from this area can confirm.

Just because the ship completed cargo at 1330 does not mean she can sail "just like that". Tugs and pilot had to be pre-ordered. For the pilot at least 4 hours notice is required. As it happens the pilot was on board before scheduled time and the tugs were available, so the ship was able to leave the berth half an hour early.

Yes, she was built in Canada as Rupert Brand VIII.
She then became Zerda and Paraclete before becoming Cabo Tinoso Dos in Feb 1999. Hope this helps.
