EIDER outbound

Down to her loadline with a cargo of scrap metal bound for Bilbao, the coaster EIDER looked very smart this afternoon as she headed past the Cloch Light at the beginning of her three day passage to the northern Spanish port. Unusually for a Strahlmann ship, her hatches are painted green rather than the more common dark red, with white bulwarks fore and aft. Another of the company's 'Rhein' class vessels, KR√úCKAU, also has this livery variation.
