Now under the past Easter holiday I decided to check up on my pride and joy, for many year – Stena Voyager, that like me have ended up here in Landskrona as finale destination and to be 100% recycled.
Haven’t been down to the harbor area since my visit on board together with our local newspaper in the end of May last year. The whole process was meant to take about 8 months and they are nearly there.
Voyager is now only an empty shell now and bit by bit they have started to pull “him” apart. The quayside was full of torn pieces of aluminum – the funnels are gone, but still in “his” last months looking great and mighty – but so sad to see this beautiful craft so vulnerable and completely tattered.
I have a feeling that this will be my last view of “him” – in a couple of months will there be nothing left and a fantastic saga has come to an end, but I personal will have all the wonderful memories: stress, hard work, scream and shout, laughter, team work and bad jokes. Million stories to be told. But as, Stuart, one of our crew members said – gone, but never forgotten.
“Everything that has a beginning comes to an end.”
