I had a problem using Firefox, but now using "Opera" and no messages. Using Total AV or Windows defender I get no unsafe site message.Firefox is way to slow for me and fails frequently when I try to use it to upload to the site.

Hi Bob,

I got two of the tugs inward this morning but could not be around for the rigs departure.
I did catch her on her way in though but have not posted any photos on here.

I can email you some if you want

I wonder how they will get the large volumes away from the terminal. Seaforth has a small railhead which Freightliner abandoned some while ago. Maersk and MSC are committed rail users at Felixstowe, but I suggest everything will be on road transport from Liverpool.

Hi Richard,

Stena run a ferry service from near my home at Harwich to the Hook of Holland, which is at the mouth of the New Waterway. From there its still I think a bus replacement service to Rotterdam due to the rail service suspended whilst a new metro/tram is built. Public cruises of Rotterdam harbour are run by "Spido"
https://www.spido.nl which can be accessed by a tram from Rotterdam central station Used to be number 5 last time I used it).
A small fast ferry runs from the Hook of Holland to Europort for passengers and bikes. This affords good views and photographic opportunities if you do a round trip which is very cheap around 5 Euros.

This link may help you access the Kiel Canal from Rotterdam https://www.rome2rio.com/s/Rotterdam/Rendsburg

best regards and best of luck and enjoy your holiday.

Ken was a dear friend we met on many occasions and because we were so different in many ways we sometime argued ! We always became friends again of course. I am so glad I went to see him at his home recently, sadly the last time we would meet.He will always be remembered on this site to which he gave his undying passion.

His many friends on here should celebrate his life, and what became his life's work almost to the end.
 
So long Ken I will miss you a great deal and have no "sparring partner" now you have gone. You will not be forgotten. Rest in Peace

With respect

Derek

Ken has been the backbone of this site almost since its inception. He has been a personal friend for a long time and I have met him on many occasions. We had many differences during this time but always resolved them.

Recently I visited Ken at his home, after he informed me of his failing health. He was in good spirits despite everything although quite frail.

Since that time he has had a nasty fall at home and been admitted to Lewisham hospital near his home.
At the moment he is very poorly and I know everyone will wish him all the best.

More news on his condition will be advised as soon as I have it.

The most frustrating thing about copyright cheats like this is. As soon as you deal with one and get it sorted another one appears. In some cases its probably the same person with another ID.

Despite the best efforts its an impossible task.

15  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / Photos of Texas Treasure being scrapped wanted on: December 03, 2017, 11:56:09 am
Hi Everyone,

A friend of mine has researched and built a model of the British Rail Harwich to Hook ferry St George.
She was scrapped at Alang in 2000 as "Texas Treasure". He has a photographic record of the ship all except some photos of her demise at Alang. He would love to have some photos of her at her final resting place and is willing to pay a small fee for any sourced.

Please email me in first instance, thankyou
