M/V Thames

Odd goings on at Shoreham recently, as I have noticed that the Cemex owned Sand Harrier has been delivering to the Dudman site. This is usually done by the Dudman owned Thames (ex Pelicano, ex Arco Thames). A quick search shows Thames heading off to Kaliningrad, Russia at the end of July.

Any clues anyone?

Regards
Gor

Hope to sail this weekend or early next week, back to UK.

Out of interest, I know the Donald Redford went for scrap, anybody got any pictures of her being cut up ?

Oh dear, Dudman have gone into administration and the ships of the independent shipping company, of which Thames is one, have been tied up for the last couple of weeks.

Well it turns out that Thames, along with the rest of the ship's of the Independent Shipping Company, has actually been arrested by the Admiralty Marshall and is likely to be stuck in port for some time.

Sad news indeed.

Sadly she's going to be cut up. Although a lot of people know where she gone I've been asked not to say at the moment. Took her there on Friday/Saturday.
Yes a good ship and I had a good five years on her

Yes, she had a good innings, I enjoyed every minute. Shame really she still had a few years in her but the recession and being due for a special in a few months meant it was the end.

This is such sad news, she was a regular at Shoreham and seemed to be in fine form. I can't believe they are going to scrap her. Gutted.

Yes, for her age and being a dredger she was it good condition and still had some life in her. A well built ship from a British yard.

Yes, saved from the torch, a new start for the old girl. Been reflagged in Cape Verde and going to run between CV and West Africa somewhere, not sure where she's going exactly, the crew haven't updated the AIS, she off of Portugal now, nearly 6 years exactly since I sailed her the other way to the UK.
