A Tribute to the "Workhorses of the Sea"

Here is my small tribute to the hundreds of small and medium sized "workhorses of the sea" that ply the waves of Øresund every day of the year, even on Midsummer Eve, when most people are celebrating the Nordic summer. They may not look as elegant as the yachts and cruise liners, but by transporting a multitude of products which are essential for the functioning of our societies, they deserve our appreciation.
