Next a series of pics taken in 1978 while passing the Avondale Shipyard near New Orleans.
During that time Avondale was building a series of gas tankers, - very expensive ships -, but apparently they did not have long lives as gas tankers. They had a very short service life, - was soon scrapped or converted to other purposes, - but impressive ships they were indeed.

"Shellnave"

Here comes a series of pics of a real oldtimer, - the tanker  "Shellnave"-, which was still going strong when I photographed her in 1979.

"Kinna Dan"

Here a special series of pics of motor tanker "Kinna Dan" of  J. Lauritzen, - Copenhagen, Denmark.
I write "special", because when this ship came out in 1966, she was a sensation!
Today you can only smile about that, but in those days she was in fact the biggest ship in Denmark!  And BIG she was, - an amazing 72100 TDW!
WoW!!!  That was BIG! Really BIG!
Therefore, - when "Kinna Dan" arrived to deliver oil to a local power plant, I simply had to go there in order to have a closer look at this "giant" of a ship!
But as mentioned, - today you can only smile when thinking back to those days, - and it really shows how fast time passes, because today nobody would raise an eyebrow if they saw a tanker with a modest dead weight of only 72100 tons! But in those days it was a BIG ship - - - -
