Zhen Hua at Felixtowe
« on: September 16, 2015, 10:02:03 AM »

Heavy lift ship delivering container cranes to Felixtowe. Some lovely shots from on board the manouvering tugs and how on earth has it managed to navigate from the Far East with such a cargo? The storm and wind conditions must have been quite hairy at times!

Struth !!  Imagine trying to build a model of that, without it capsizing.   %%

I also can not figure out why that didn't tip over. That hull must go a long way down in the water.
