Heading back to Mongstad, from where she'd arrrived a few days earlier, the Danish-flagged products tanker TERNVIK was seen as she passed McInroy's Point in a break between some heavy showers. The distinctive funnel of this tanker is designed to look like a tern, reflected also by the name of Tarntank, her owners. TERNVIK was built, like many tankers of her size, by Shanghai Edward, and she entered service in 2001. She is 141 metres in length and has a deadweight of 14,796 tonnes.
