And as Sydney no longer has an oil refinery, she is chock full of Jet A1 and Diesel . . . (BTW, nice shot Clyde)

Thank you Marc. The efficient and hard working Category Admin for Tankers has determined that she should be classified as shown. His reasoning is set down in the Category Site Standards item for Tankers reached from the Support tab on the Home page. See

Great shotĄ Is she really a Chemical / product tanker? Her size is more likely for a crude oil tanker.
Ron O on Apr 22, 2019 17:15 (2 months ago)
Great shot. She sure looks like the NS AFRICA. Minor correction.

Thank you Tony. You are right about the autumn colours.

Great photograph Clyde. Starting to see winter colour tones!

Thank you Hannes and Paul. The great camera location is 150 metres from a cafe where I can watch Marine Traffic while having a coffee.
Paul Finnigan on Apr 15, 2019 07:29 (2 months ago)
