On The Wrong River?

Seen arriving on the Clyde on Monday morning was this little coaster, RIVER TYNE. Despite her name, she is owned by a German company, and like many of that country's fleet is registered at St John's in Antigua and Barbuda. She dates from 1999, when she was completed under the name THOR but adopted her current name in May 2000. For some more details of this ship, click here. She is here to load scrap metal for Seville, in Spain, a common destination for such cargoes.
