Peak Bergen

Peak BergenHere the Peak Bergen executes a rather neat pirouette right by Lady Jane.

That's some impressive piloting, turning such a long vessel in such a small space.

I think the Peak Bergen is probably carrying grain.

    She is fitted with a Becker rudder which is for the want of a better description,an extra rudder on the trailing edge of the rudder.This allows the ship to turn very tightly and incorporated with a bow thruster makes her very handy.Unlike Lady Jane,who makes do with a rudder,alot of prayers and a few curses.
