uglyships-logo.jpgHello you!!

I’m back from the Grand Banks, haven’t done a George Clooney on you (hint: The Perfect Storm) and I will start to give some attention to this little site. Unfortunately things at Ugly Ships-central will quit be busy for the coming time…….so I’ll try to do a daily update but when that doesn’t happen: please don’t be afraid!! There will be more coming, just not at the moment you thought to expect it!

So see you around!!

Grtz,

SeaBart!
