Ive been onboard while she was in teesport overnight last year. Had lunch with the captain blah blah blah.

shes nice, however the vessel was built around 2 new ploughs and backfillers, of which broke and it doesnt really work with the older kind. So sort of a waste of 80million.

The interior is nice but theres a lot of wasted space also in the cabins.
