Hi Barry,

We have been doing simulator trials with the "Triple E" for some time now for entry into Thames Gateway.


If you are around at about 0530 in the morning you will see the largest class of vessel that we currently regularly do passing The Power Station outbound. The Maersk "L " class are 300mlong and 45m wide.

I will even give you a :wave

Hi Rod,

We're not normally there at 5am sadly cheers We have very restricted hours of work there when they are unloading the wood pellets from ships. Good view of the Thames from the canteen though but a shame the food is worse that school dinners :naughty: I'm back at Marchwood next week so I'll get some piccies of the big fellas at Southampton :Stinky
