The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

The Taurus and Magnus are basically just huge engines, surrounded by lots of fuel tanks - with a big winch on deck. 19, 500 bhp, 200t bollard pull, and run on heavy fuel oil. I reckon the only time their back decks would be dry.......... is in drydock on a sunny day.
