Gage Roads (formally Kwinana Anchorage) is the Fremantle Port “car park” so to speak for ships visiting and leaving the port of Fremantle [AU FRE] and Kwinana [AU KWI]. This photo was taken early afternoon on November 19, 2016, and I captured a sample of the 15 ships in the anchorage. Most of the ships in the anchorage are bulk carriers who are often awaiting cleaning and/or inspection before coming into port.
The Weiland, the lead ship was passing through the anchorage to her berth in the inner harbour.
The vessel, Anne Mette Bulker [IMO 9544152/MMSI 235090622] is a box-snapped log design handy-size bulk carrier registered in the Isle of Man. She is a part of the Lauritzen Bulkers A/S of Denmark fleet, has a deadweight of 38,118 tonnes, a gross tonnage of 23,950 and was built in 2012.
