Southampton VTS had the Methania, which had been laid up in Southampton since last December, down to leave Southampton for the Nab Anchorage at 0900 this morning.She did go, according to this item on Solent Shipping News.
I took the photo of Methania, below, at Southampton in December last year, it was the same day I went to see Saga Rose on her final visit.

While browsing the net, I came across the contender for - and surely the winner of - the Award for the Most Hideous Paint Job In Maritime History. The unfortunate recipient of this dubious honour is....*drum roll*...Tallink's Superstar which is painted in a 'delightful' scheme of pea green and orange. For pictures, click here, but put your sunglasses on first. Sorry Tallink but that is truly vile.
