    Default 3 masted schooner(?) outside St Katherines

    There's an exceedingly large 3 masted schooner 'hanging around' below tower bridge at the mo. Anyone know who she is? Can't read here name from here.

    Either she's waiting for the lock or for the bridge. I seriously doubt she'll fit in the lock but she looks to tall for tower bridge too. She's a large boat to hang around on a busy river....

    Trying to find a webcam..

    Don't forget that St Kat's lock used to take trading vessels.
    Next time, it'll all be different.

    I think she's gone back down river while I was having lunch. We'll never know [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Still, jalapeno and chicken pizza followed by bakewell tart and custard. 3 cheers for the company canteen.

    No. Def a schooner. Unless the sticks have fallen off. She may have taken a berth down river. No nationality evident.

    Just been for an after lunch constitutional. Whatever she was she's gawn down river.

    Twister_Ken, I think she'd be too long for the dock. Having said that there's a very large and vulgar motor vessel in there. Do they get them in on free flow?

    Thats the cruise ship Sea Cloud, built as a private yacht years ago, by the looks of it.
