Talking The most peculiar feeling in the world is when...........

you see your stuff FLOATING AWAY IN FRONT OF YOUR EYES DOWN SOUTHAMPTON WATER ON A BOAT THE SIZE OF A VILLAGE! :scared:


Our container's on this bleedin' dirty great big mutha', lucky enough to live only 20 mins away to give it a wave this afternoon, does this put me in the same category as train & plane spotters? I wasn't wearing a greasy overcoat....................honest

Still can't work out which one's ours though

See attached "boatie" photos for added sadness.

I heard that they regularly fall overboard in rough seas and that there is nothing that can be done. In fact lost containers are such a menace to other ships that they have to be sunk. That's why they carry shotguns on board, so they can shoot holes in any containers they lose, to sink them.

But your's will be fine.

Why when someone does a post on shipping, does someone else alway post pictures of damaged/sinking containers Its just like spider threads almost always end up with a picture of a huge spider on a bog roll
