Ruud and cor,

Consider yourselves officially appointed as SN's correspondents and photographers at "Dordt in Stoom - 2006." We expect a full report by 192359 UTC May! (Scribe)

The website looks very interesting, should be quite a spectacle in Dordrecht. (Thumb)

Nice site with some lovely photographs. Quite nostalgic for me since I used to see SHIELDHALL and her partner ship DALMARNOCK passing my house daily when I was a youngster. The used to come down the Clyde and pass Gourock about 1200 hrs on their way to the Outer Firth to jettison their cargoes. We would see them making their way upriver again about 1530 hrs. (Thumb)
