Duckling update and a nice sunset

The bulk carrier Donald Duckling arrive to load scrap metal. It was soon discovered that it was/is unseaworthy, the crew had not been paid for months and were living of fish they caught themselves and cooked on the deck. No mention of the officers beyond a rumour that the chief engineer had been dismissed for asking for replacement parts. The ship is currently classed as ‘abandoned’ and is moored at Northumbria Quay.
