New Ro-Ro Cargo Ship ...

Roll-on/roll-off (RORO or ro-ro) ships are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as cars, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars, that are driven on and off the ship on their own wheels or using a platform vehicle, such as a self-propelled modular transporter. This is in contrast to lift-on/lift-off (LoLo) vessels, which use a crane to load and unload cargo. (From Wikipedia)

  12. Enjoyed the photo of the container ship. I hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day. It completely passed me by before I remembered what day it was.
