I was on board her on her first visit to Tilbury at the old container berth inside the dock.

While she was the same size as the OCL/ACT vessels, she was always a little bit different.

In particular the deck load did not form a solid block from port to starboard and with 3 separate blocks, one to each hatch, she was a ***** to secure.
