Congrats to Graham and his co-author John Rix on the impending publication of 'Rix Shipping' by Ships in Focus.
I know Graham has worked this up over many years (still have his early draft!) and guess it has been a moving target with all the sales and then investment in the wind-farm sector.
But it will surely be a good addition to any bookshelf.
Well done Graham.
Cheers, George

Just received my copy today so once again congrats and well done to Graham and his co-author JR on a fine work.

Patrick, there's a JONRIX photo that is attributed to both us (!) but think is yours, and a HARRIX of mine as 'company archives', but hey not bothered! With so many photos of the later ships in circulation, hard to keep track. Michael is the star photographer of course with back-up from Roy Cressey.
Cheers, George

Sad to learn this week of the passing of John Rix at age of 83. He was the great grandson of the founder Robert Rix.
