Here was 15 in the series.  And actually this post could be called “Thanks to John Watson” or Some sights never to float sixth boro.”  At the head of this tow is Dutch tug Typhoon (1976) departing Portsmouth for a four-day trip up to Rosyth.   Assist tugs are Serco Denholm, although I can’t make out the names.  And the unit on the barge will one day be a portion of HMS Queen Elizabeth.  The carrier, though huge at 930′ loa, will be shorter than Panamax vessels serving the sixth boro.

If you want to talk huge, this new UASC container vessel (I can’t make out the name) is one of nine planned, each 1200′ x 157′ x 46′ draft.

John took all these fotos along the waters between the English Channel and the Baltic.  He passed Sun Bird (relatively small at less than 300′ x 50′ x 20′ rounded . . . all smaller than sixth boro regular Oleander) near the Kiel Canal.   Note all the wind turbines in the background;  the KVK turbine has been in place since March and has NOT yet begun to spin.  Maybe it IS sculpture?

Finally, John’s conveyance . . . MV Minerva.  I’ve no idea whether Minerva has ever sailed into the sixth boro.

Thanks much for these fotos, John.
