195 Nautical

This is the sort of ship that goes up and down the Thames day and night while the tide is in.

Sometimes 3 or 4 will be visible going to and from the docks at Tilbury.

    I hope you never find one of these in your yachting lane, would call for some quick manoeuvering for sure.

      Accidents have happened, usually caused by hooray henry’s with speedboats they can’t control.
      We can see the freighters from miles away, and get out of their way, after all we can turn on a sixpence they can’t.

    Transporting all the essentials, I guess….some more unsung heroes of everyday life.

      Sometimes I stand there and think that for 2000+ years people have used this river to immigrate and emigrate. To bring luxuries and staples into the port of London.
      Yet compared to the great rivers it is small, on a clear day you can see both sides.
      I love it, tho it isn’t my river, That is the Mersey.
