These Bad Boys Again!

I know they have been spotted before, but I saw this last Sunday in Luanda Bay Angola.

It was hilarious watching the local skipper berthing with 4 levers to think about.

Cromton or something else?

It's a Crompton 14m DR (Dope Runner). This one has obviously been converted to 'Pirate spec'.

He must have been a bit thick. Use two only and it would be easier than berthing with a single
