GTS FINNJET at Alang, India

On 23rd of August 2008 we all left our homes spread over Europe to travel to India for a final view on GTS FINNJET (MV Kingdom) in it's plot 109 at Rishi Ship Breakers. Alang is situated on the Gulf of Khambat in the Indian Ocean. Politically it belongs to Bhavnagar district in the state of Gujarat, where alcohol is prohibited and 90% of the citizens are Vegetarians. Without surprise, the living conditions and the overall atmosphere is very far away from Western standards and this is really something you won't see anywhere as a package tourist. A detailed travel review was written by Kai and is now available below, in the next days we will also manage to translate it to English! Stay tuned. A more factual report on what we saw on board the ship was published in the news section on 2nd of September. We embarked on 26th of August ~6:00 pm local time and stayed until the next morning at 05:30 am (both times low tide). We have now set up a collection of about 220 Photos of Finnjet as we saw her on the beach in her final position. If you want to see all over 1000 Finnjet photos we took in high resolution, check out the Alang 2008 DVD at the FINNJETweb Shop!
