I don't know anyone who can make ships/boats/tankers look as good as this, Les!
Les Auld: Thanks you Ginnie, appreciate the compliment.

I was trying to figure out what is that orange thing on the back of the Skye and came across this http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/showallphotos.aspx?mmsi=232560000

I still don't know what that thingy is - maybe a bathyscope?
Les Auld: It is the industry standard lifeboat Louis, most ships have them at the stern these days. Thanks for the comment.
Clearly not Everton fans then?
Les Auld: Probably not Bill, thanks for the comment.
You've had a good time at the docks of late Les, another fine shot.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, I try to get down there at least twice a week to see what is around.
