THE SANDS OF ALANG: Peter Knego’s new DVD about shipbreaking in Alang, India

MidShipCentury 2014 Passenger Ships Desk Calendar now available!

Acif 27.11 (2) copy

Images taken by Selim San yesterday show that cutting and demolition has begun on the ACIF, the ex SEA VENTURE, PACIFIC PRINCESS, PACIFIC at Aliaga.  The radio mast is gone; the forward portion of the superstructure has begun to vanish on the starboard side and preliminary cuts have been made in the still listing ship’s bow.

Many thanks to Selim San.
