Two Coasters

Two coasters photographed at the Tail o' the Bank late this afternoon. On the left, lying at anchor and waiting to sail upriver, is the Erwin Strahlmann ship LINNAU, delivered by the Slovenske Lodenice Komarno shipyard in July 2006. With an overall length of 87.98 metres, she is 3,699 tonnes deadweight. The other ship is FINGAL, now chartered to JST Services, whose logo is emblazoned across her bridge front. She had just discharged a cargo of plywood in King George V Dock, and was sailing for Corpach to load round timber.
