Maritime Forum Photo Gallery

Thought I'd start one off along the same lines as the one over on the Aviation & Aircraft forum.

They share some great photos over there and I figured the same could happen here.

As luck would have it I don't have many of mine stored on this PC but I'll get the ball rolling with this one -

Tankers in Galway Bay, Dec 08

Here is a photo of the ship Arklow raider which ran aground after leaving the mouth of the Boyne coming from Drogheda port.

I think this is in November 2010?

Heard about this in a news article, it was a really interesting story, modern day treasure hunters fascinate me.
