Unfortunate Corona namings

These ships were proudly named like this in past times but their names do sound quite unfortunate now…..wonder if they have more problems coming into port than others?

Anyway: please do support all seafarers worldwide who, due to the coronavirus pandemie lockdowns everywhere, are stuck on board of their (ugly or not) vessels and still keep doing their jobs making sure all goods end up where they are needed and keeping the economy turning over.

Stay at home & wash your hands!

A regular vessel but a very unfortunate name: Shiner.

Same-ish goes for the “Woolloomoolloo” – IMO 9584499…it sounds just a bit..uhm.. weird. (Woolloomoolloo is a suburd of Sydney)
