  • Great shot John
    • Thank you, David my pleasure.
  • Unique anchor mounts on that vessel, nice capture.
    • The name Sospan Dau is Welsh and originates from Sosban Fach and Llanelli's tin plating industry, Sospan being the Welsh for Saucepan. Also those Anchor mounts were not on her in 2011 found a photo they are not installed . Can not find the reason for them .
    • Dau is welsh for Two.
    • Cheers, Michael.
