Working vessels

I spent seven months in Southampton and saw a fair amount of shipping, some interesting, some not so interesting. Naturally I was really oggling cruise ships, but that’s another story altogether. These are some of the working ships I saw in the ports of South East England, warts and all. At some point I will probably break off a portion of this page into another section, but let me first capture all these oddities.
