A P Merit

8th August 2008, 14:52
Hello from Belfast.

This group came highly recommended by TridentPort, a senior member of the group and one with much greater experience and knowledge of the Port of Belfast than I.

However, I've been photographing about the docks here for about 8 years and hope I can add some photographs of interest occasionally.

This photo of A P MERIT in Belfast's Pollock Dock, in November 2003, was taken shortly before she was taken round to the shipyard for extensive repairs, presumably after a thorough MCA inspection and subsequent detention.

She was, not long after, sold to Bangladesh for scrap and demolished there in 2004.

Bye for now.

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire.
Find your way around the ship, join in and enjoy the voyage.
I'm sure you'll figure out how to add pictures to your post but if you need assistance just ask a moderator.
