Terrific pics Kenny, thanks alot.
I took this vid a couple of days ago of the Sand Swan entering Langton Lock. Starts off a bit shaky (as per!). There's also one of the ACL ships hanging around outside Seaforth.

Like it, what sort of boat is the Sand Swan? it seems to be very low down in the water.

It's a dredger Phil. Looks like it was returning full of silt judging by the way it was sitting in the water. I first spotted it in the Mersey near Fort Perch Rock, so it may have been working in the Dee.

Nice vid Adman.

Who's the music by? Guitars reminded me of a band called From The Sky but they are pretty much instrumental so I know it's not them.

Anyone know why the ACL ships have such large superstructures? Do they take vehicles as well as containers?
