News Flash

I have just found out that the ship in the Bays is the natural gas carrier British Trader was a striking visitor to Tor Bay over the weekend.

Built in 2002, she is a 93,498-ton liquid natural gas tanker owned by BP Shipping.

She carries 138,000 cubic metres of liquid natural gas at minus 163 degrees in four tanks.

She had unloaded at the Isle of Grain in Kent and is bound for Point Fortin in Trinidad to reload.

She stopped in the bay to have an underwater hull clean. Alongside her in this photograph by Rodge Musselwhite is the MTS (Brixham) workboat Bay Protector, from which the divers are operating.


That's if you are interested in this sort of thing
