Lomur Ship at Newburgh North Fife

Cargo ship Lomur chugging by Newburgh North Fife on the ebb tide having left Perth Docks on the turn. Its last port of call was Reykjavik, its cargo delivered from there. On the waterfront were two other photographers clicking away, obviously ship spotters, I know of plane spotters, bird spotters too, today I joined their ranks. Name: Lomur IMO: 8116178 Flag: Norway International Register MMSI: 258916000 Callsign: LATU4 Vessel type: Cargo Gross tonnage: 1,516 tons Summer DWT: 1,570 tons Length: 72 m Beam: 11 m Draught: 4.8 m Home port: Larvik Class society: Germanischer Lloyd Build year: 1983 Builder*: Nordsoevaerftet Ringkobing, Denmark Owner: Nes - Hafnarfjordur, Iceland Manager: Nes - Hafnarfjordur, Iceland Lomur - IMO 8116178
Ships weave along the deep water channel formed by the South Tay fault line guided by recently placed marker towers embedded on the river floor and with a pilot.
Passing by, almost silently, so close.
