Nice pics, esp the SIBs!

And now I've looked at your web site, great stuff! I'll have to work hard at my RIB photo's - you and Brian put my efforts to shame

(BTW is that ship moored next to HMS Belfast the Freedom?)

Having a quick look at

http://www.portoflondon.co.uk/displa...6&site=leisure

to refresh my memory - the cruise ship was

"Seabourn Pride"

Does that help?!

Sure does, jools.

I was off on completely the wrong tack! Freedom is the floating block of flats which was in the news a while ago as it's just a floating tax haven. I don't think it/she ever came that far up the river. Thanks for posting the link.
