- Photos of ships I cannot identify -
 
 
 


"Mystery Ship" No. 2
- Shanghai II class gunboat with the unusual number "53-3-1".

This ship looks like a Shanghai-II class gun boat, - a type built in large numbers in China, - and also exported.
I think I photographed this one in Colombo, Sri lanka, - and therefore it most likely belongs to the Sri Lankan Navy, who had many ships of this class.
But which one?

Mystery solved!

This traditional sailing ship carries Swedish flag, and I can identify the 5 first letters in her name, - "Atlan - - - - -  ", - but what is her full name?

SOLVED!!!  The Swedish ship is  "Atlantica"!  (Will at the earliest opportunity transfer "Atlantica" to the correct page!)
