Three Ships

Remember the Sultan of Brunei’s bath toys? The ones he wants to sell as surplus to his navy’s requirements but the buyer must be able to cope with accommodatiuon designed for small Sarawaki sailors?

They are still parked in Barrow docks, unsold. Every so often, one of them goes off for a trip round the Irish Sea to keep in trim, but they’re a fixture in the landscape now.

  1. Nice photo! Your story is rather humorous, too. Wonder if they will ever sell?

  2. excellent composition!

  3. Sarawaki actually not Bruneian.Sarawak is part of malaysia.

  4. Send the bath toy into my Isrish Sea Harbour. Beautiful refection of the white elephant. It does feel like the ’80s again.
