After the crowds over the bank holiday weekend where some 500,000 people visited the riverside to see the warships, tall ships and military displays including a Hurricane and Spitfire flypast, wandering along the front on my own did feel a bit strange and the fact the ships had gone was a bit sad.
Although there were some ships I had seen before I only saw three new ships.
Bulk Carrier Pedhoulas Builder (IMO 9589255, GT 44289, 2012) was moored in the main basin at Seaforth, built by Zhejiang Ouhua SB Co, Zhoushan in China (Yard No.616) this was possibly her first visit to Liverpool, checking her AIS now she is still in port and will probably leave over the weekend.
Belgium flagged Trawler Stormvogel O51 (IMO 8308642, GT 217, 1983) was further down the docks towards the city centre. Over the years I have seen quite a few similarly flagged trawlers here. At first I though there was a company who had won a maintainance/repair contract but as the ships come and go so quickly and visit Liverpool from so far away I am not sure that this is correct.
General Cargo Ship Blue Dragon (IMO 9370288, GT 2545, 2006) was at Bromborough alongside the river wall. She was built by Damen Bergum, Bergum, NL as Yard Number 9398 and is due to leave for Wicklow over the weekend.
I should be back in Liverpool on Tuesday, hopefully some interesting ships will arrive between now and then.
