United Kingdom Shipwatch

When I moved to the United Kingdom in 2013 I entered a whole new phase of shipwatching, I spent 8 months in Southampton and have visited the harbours of Portsmouth, Poole, Weymouth, Cowes and Bristol. I have seen all manner of ship and floatables, some more interesting than others. The cruise ships have always been my primary target though, but I enjoy a good bit of cargo shipping and tugs too. This is my tribute to the things that float in the UK.
