429 The Duncan Island

A ship carrying refrigerated containers is called a Reefer. Such a ship is the Duncan Island, at about 180m in length not a huge container ship, but one which was an appropriate size for coming in to the harbour.

The tide was well up, with the high level literally only a few minutes away. The ship gently glided in to the well sheltered harbour where the water was moving slowly and lazily, escorted by tugs fore and aft.

She would be bearing containers that are giant freezers, bringing fruit and veg in to what is one of the largest harbours & busiest ports in the country for that kind of produce.

The Duncan Island represents one particular type of ship that regularly attends the port. There are the regular ferries, three types; local within the port, further abroad to the Isle of Wight, both vehicle and pedestrian, and to the Channel Islands, and international.

I always enjoy watching any ship come in to the harbour or indeed going out. It’s nice to know that the port is busy, and it is a pleasure to watch the movements of the different vessels..
