Arriving at midday today from Liverpool was Erwin Strahlmann's coaster BÖKLUM, which dates from 1984. She is a 'Combi Coaster 125', with a hull built at IHC Holland Beaver Dredgers at Sliedrecht, and completed at the Damen yard at Gorinchem. Originally named SONJA B, she became LEA in 1999, and took her current name in 2002. She is 89.31 metres in length, and has a deadweight of 2,818 tonnes. She will be loading scrap metal on the upper river.
