COASTERS: Top Gunness on the Trent

The amount of shipping visiting up-river quays and ports has increased in the early months of 2011. The river Trent has seen an increase in trade, and more coasters have been seen as a result within the confines of the river. Many have visited the furthest point that coasters can now trade up the river, Top Gunness Wharf, following the closure of Gainsborough.

On 1 February two typical size coasters were working cargo at the wharf (pictured below). They were the 1,795dwt Wiebke D, operated by Drabert Schiffahrts of Oldenburg in Holstein, Germany and the 2,302dwt Gibraltar-flagged Mermaid operated by Burst Reederei also of Germany.
