Perhaps "Your" ship asked for is now returning up the Red Sea to the Suez-Canal, according to Marine Traffic.  She seems perhaps to have been in port for abt. 12 hrs.  If You have seen her at Marine Traffic for some time, you will perhaps have registered her draught at different times, ahead of and after visiting the port You were interested in. At internet I think You will find details on that ship, incl. tables showing draught and  weight of cargo.......

Sorry, the route forecast on Marine Traffic was wrong.  I see she now is sailing a round the Skaw at a distance off abt.  6 nautival miles, so You have to have a very good camera, perhaps  long distance drone to get a picture of the deck cargo.

According to Marine Traffic  -  AIS,   her  route forecast is through  NOK ,  the Kiel Canal.  With speed and distance she perhaps is available for shot in the Canal tomorrow, Friday March 3rd.   Marine traffic will give and idea of her position.  I would like to see her deck cargo photographed.

Both Wikipedia  and  Warsailors  gives info about  SS Tordenskjold.  Look at those pages, incl. pictures.   Perhaps some details on some ot the pictures are similar. But I am not sure that timber was usual cargo on SS Tordenskjold.   Norwegian "DS" means "SS"             About  D/S Tordenskjold

Thanks for all good work done so we still can show our maritime pictures and videoes in this elegant way.

It is also a very great pleasure  to look at pictures and videoes, and in some cases comment on them. The range in ships age and types make SHIPSPOTTING very interesting and informative, esp. for me, not having much experience as sailor at all. But I use every opportunity to catch pics and videoes.

Best regards from cold Norway

9  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Ex Norwegian "Horten" transformed to Fishery Patrol Wessel, UK-flagged on: March 18, 2014, 05:23:25 pm
An Ex-Royal Norwegian Navy auxiliary, "Horten" (named after the city in which she was built) have in February/March 2014 left Norway. She have for a few weeks been in Ramsgate/UK, converted to Fishery Patrol Wessel,  with UK flag, and with given owner/manager (unknown to me).  I wonder if she is going to that mission for UK,  or for what country/area?
