I'm really getting into this boat lark, look what I saw yesterday morning. We have a small wharf down at the bottom of the hill, next to the River Trent. Quite a few boats pass this point en route to Gunness and Keadby, and one or two stop here at Burton. This yard has always caused a lot of bother to the residents of the village, especially those who live on the hill, and for those in the pub at the top. It is a sharp tight corner for the trucks to manouvre round, and the side has been taken out of the pub a few times.
At the moment the wharf is being used for cement storage, so there are a fair few lorries around. It's a shame I couldn't get closer to the boat to take the photo's.
I got the front of it, and the back. The bit in the middle is where the cargo is carried.
Now doing a bit of research, googling the name, Burgtor, I see she was built in Portugal in 1989. She flies the Antigua Barbuda flag. I found the web site where you can track boats, thank you Brian for pointing me in that direction, and added these photo's. To see it look here
Interesting what you can find out :0)
I don't know why that link doesn't work, I have checked it six times.
What is it?
