The picture was taken Dec 1999, yeah that was one impressive engine however she did have her problems, she developed cracks in her crankcase and warped cross head guides with the white metal bearing surfaces breaking up plus there was a problem with her cylinder lubrication as she went through a cylinder liner every voyage. Hope they have got the problems fixed now.

These large "box boats" are always impressive. What surprises me most is that such a small engineering team can manage the maintenance requirements of such a vessel.
Keep up the good work !
