Description:
The small tanker RODOS at Kimolos island

PS: I hope the photo is still acceptabe, as the rocks hide a small part of the vessel. I also have another acceptable shots of the ship, but I loved the scene with the catamaran coming in at this time. So I'll be happy, if the pic stays on the site. But anyway, if it conflicts with the side standards too much, just feel free to delete... Apologies then.

Hi Yvon,

first of all, thank you very much for the nice compliment.😉 I have to admit, I am not really sure about this. I just took over the category from the other photos on the site and assumed, that she is refuelling the island, as I noted a few hoses behind the rock. But I am not an expert in tankers, so I cannot certainly confirm your question. Apologies. Anyway the cyclades are known for their shortage of water, so your guess (water tanker) certainly also makes sense.

Regards
Florian

Hello Florian,
Do you confirm she is refuelling the Island ?
I cannot see any fifi and some pipes are painted in blue. I wonder she is a water tanker. Just a guess.
Nice photo.
Regards,
Yvon

@peter j. fitzpatrick : Yeah, I agree, shipspotting in Greece can sometimes be difficult. But at the islands, especially the smaller ones, it is actually not a problem at all. You can move around the ports freely or climb on the hills or the rocks the have nice and multifarious views and perspectives. In general you have lots of options for nice and unusual photos, I just love that. Apart from this Greece is simply a most amazing country with so many beautiful islands, fantastic people, great ships and much more. 😉

And of course many thanks for your kind compliment, Peter. Good to hear this.

Best regards
Florian

@Fergal, @Phil, Thank You very much for your kind comments, highly appreciated. Always great to get some good response. 😉

@adenanthos: Iím not sure if the shot is suitable as a HOI, as only a small part of the harbour is visible. Btw: Everyone who is interested, can find an overview over the small habour here: http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2778258

Fine shot :)

Otherwise it can always go under "Harbor overview"
