There is one of their cutters that is about the southern north sea, dover strait area that has CUSTOMS painted on the side but they are plainly too busy to repaint it because it has what appears to be a sheet hangng over each side with the words BORDER AGENCY painted on it. How naff is that !! "

Their was a similar incident shown on one of the Sea Patrol UK were they boarded a tanker that had been idle off the Kent coast for some time issued the captain an on the spot fine of a few thousand pounds for selling the crew duty free cigarettes whilst in territorial waters and confiscated the rest worth several thousand pounds all this without a judge or jury. easy way to swell the govemet's coffers easier then catching drug smugglers

Loch Striven:

SL Performance already removed from the 'raft' and performing under water hull cleaning near Greenock, Scotland at the moment. After completion around 6/Jun she'll proceed to Panama, Balboa to load empty containers for Shanghai, whereafter the vessel will be recycled.

All other Maersk B-types (Beaumont/Brooklyn/Bentonville/Boston/Baltimore) will be re-activated next month (June 2010) and proceed one by one to Northern or Southern America to bring empty containers back to Asia. Possible bunkering in Falmouth, UK or Le Havre, France before crossing the Atlantic.

Update:

SL Performance underway to Panama, before heading for Shanghai (discharge empty containers) whereafter she will be demolished.

Maersk Boston will depart from Greenock, Scotland 18/Jun evening towards Portland, UK for bunkers. Take bunkers on 20/Jun whereafter she will proceed to Suape & Santos, Brasil to load empty containers for Ningbo, China.

M.Boston still having the UK flag, but now Asian command.

Maersk Beaumont will depart from Greenock somewhere 21/6, calling Portland or Falmouth, UK for bunkers as well before heading for Newark, USA. Loading empty equipment for Asia. Transit Panama before heading for Ningbo, China.

M.Beaumont now flying the Danish flag with Danish command as well.

Maersk Baltimore be ready around 26/6. Most probably go to Le Havre for bunkers instead of Portland. Exact schedule unknown yet.

I'm working on above reactivations as well and update the Maersk website myself Cheesy

Not too sure whether they have been there long enough to be classified as laid up but Martin has been at Erith since 30 July. According to to PLA website Ardent has been there since 14 August but I can recall seeing it on AIS for a few days before it appeared on PLA site
