Update to my last pic taken on 30th Sept.2011 This is her present position, on a beach slightly east of Sekondi, Ghana. No further news of her but can only assume she has been deliberately beached to avoid her sinking in the anchorage due to her 'Net curtains'?

Hi Pat. Is this the beach between Sekondi (naval base) and Takoradi, the commercial port? I worked out of Sekondi a few years ago, shore leave along in Takoradi which had more to offer!! There were always a few ships off the port of Takoradi at anchor

Hi Brian. No this beach is slightly further to the east of Sekondi. About 8 ships at anchor now 50/50 offshore supply & cargo vessels. Takoradi is a very busy port whereas Sekondi is a bit quieter with a few AHTS & well intervention vessels as well as all the new navy patrol boats...That don't appear to go anywhere.
