Tidewater graveyard in Batam. This is one of a
number of locations in which old Tidewater ships
collect to die. Third in can be seen the Star Tide
and in the middle distance is the Sydney Tide which
looks like one of those 1970s built Chinese ships,
particularly notable for the tunnel vision
experienced by the driver facing aft due to the
position of the funnels. I like this ship because
there are generators in the deck, and also some pot
plants. Kenny says that the Anglia Service, the Oil
Tempest and thre Ostertor are also in the pic.
