Faz hoje 50 anos que a Madeira vivia um dos dias mais tristes com a noticia do afundamento do navio Lakonia da Greek Line. Um dia inesquecível que me marcou por se encontrar a bordo um amigo meu.
Na foto, a criança resgatada Patricia Websiter chegou a Londres com os seus inseparáveis bonecos.
A propósito de tempestades na Madeira e neste caso na Baía do Funchal, algumas imagens de 1963.
Para os mais cépticos que passam a vida a dizer que nunca se viu nada assim... possivelmente ou têm memória curta ou serão mais novos e nunca se deram à maçada de pesquisar sobre a matéria. Tempestades sempre aconteceram! O problema é não se aprender nada com os erros. Errar todos erram, errar muitas vezes é burrice! E parece que uma vez mais não se salvaguardou nem se preveniu situações. Mais ainda, está a construir-se um novo cais que irá causar muitos dissabores. Oxalá esteja enganado...
Fotos do porto do Funchal, (extinto) Cais do Carvão, Cais da Cidade e Rua Carvalho Araújo.
But now we
present – most surprisingly for you I guess – the prototype of the 1957 Statendam as can been seen in the photos
got to like this fine ship, she was of course later eclipsed by the later, more
modern Rotterdam in people’s minds,
more and more while building it, as its looks reminded me of a hammerheaded shark!
master remained unfinished for quite a long time, but as the majority of my
recently produced moulds ended up without any suitable casting as well as me
having complicated dental problems which kept me away from my casting cellar, I
needed something new to work on. I took out and finished the Statendam.
I feel she is a very worthy successor to the Oslofjord, announced here a year ago, but please have a look at the
photos and make up your mind about that yourself.
The model is intended to cost arround 120,00 Euro and I shall be glad, if You
place a order at your dealor in case of interest soon.
Recently, we delivered
the Norwegian reefer Pacific Express, finished by Kockums in Malmö in
1945. She is another typical vessel of her time, extremely elegant and
distinctive in the colours of her owners, Biørn Biørnstad & Co in Oslo. An
a-number is available in Salen Charter, and a number b version represents the
ship when she was sold to the Norwegian Erling Hansen who ran her as Ranada
until 1972. She was then sold on to Wan
Lung Nav. Co. S/A in Panama. Her new career as Wan Chun was very short.
In November the same year, she was wrecked on the beaches of Ijmuiden, an event
well documented on the internet.
And in addition to this, I will soon have enough
castings of the Ri 168 Aurella, as
built in 1973 for Viking Line, so that I
think we will be able to deliver these in January.
More detailed information You will find on my website's opening page.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
