Excellent photo, puts things into perspective!

thanks for the picture of the ROSSINI alongside - impressive !

In my profession as tanker shipbroker, i know the owner of the ship pretty well. the owner of the ship (german company called GEFO) is really interested in a higher res picture of their vessel and/or any others you may have. These slop/waste disposal contracts with the US Navy/NATO along the english coast are very special contracts for them and more exception than rule for the usual business of these ships (we use them regularly for transportation of biodiesel on the european continent). Would you be willing to share that with them?

best regards,
Gabor Helmhout

I would have thought the RN and the Yanks would bricking it if a "Gofast" poled up. They have proven documentary evidence that they are indestructable and even when boarded and chopped up with an axe they take a while to sink. A Ribnet rib would be a mere trifle!
