Container Ships Laid up in the river Fal.

The ships that are laid up in the Fal in Cornwall, the number and size are a good measure of the world economic health.  At the moment (April 2009) it is not good and the attractions to a ship owner of finding a good safe berth with a skeleton crew on care an maintenance basis is obvious.

The ships that are laid up in the Fal in Cornwall, the number and size are a good measure of the world economic health.  At the moment (April 2009) it is not good and the attractions to a ship owner of finding a good safe berth with a skeleton crew on care an maintenance basis is obvious.

This video clip was taken the day before Mail on Sunday ran a two page spread on the two ships you see here the 21,000-ton container ships the Santa Giuliana and Santa Giulietta.  The clip includes some scenes shot from the King Harry Ferry and The Smugglers Cottage at Tolverne.

The satellite map image below shows only one ship as it was taken before the current recession in shipping. There now large boats as you see from the video moored up and down this stretch of the river
