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.

Dutch Ocean Tug Smit London is towing!

Towing this half section of a 500.000 tanker from Lisboa to Gotenborg.
In Gotenborg the rear half was to be joined on.
I think at the time all shipping in The Canal was advised to remain well clear.

Could this be the forepart of the Italian tanker NAI GENOVA?
