When posting in the "Gallery", I'm often in doubt whether to classify a ships photo as a Coaster or Cargo vessel.
I guess Lloyds List would provide the answer, but access to this requires registration and is not available to those outside the shipping industry.
Any suggestions please, for a general ruling which should suffice?

Robertsons of Glasgow (Gem Line) were classed as coasters. Depends on what coast you were referring to as we sailed down to Ancona in Italy which was a long haul from North Norway
