I was always under the impression that a modern lighter was a type of coaster sized vessel that ferried goods between larger bulk carriers or tankers, offloading in places where the bigger ships cannot dock, either due to depth limitations or maneuverability problems. I'm also led to believe that coastal tankers are of the same breed, some even being ex-oil lighters. If I am correct should this be included in this article or a seperate article?--▫Bad▫harlick♠ 16:12, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
- If you can get something to back up your impression, then absolutely add this to the article - the vessels are all fulfilling the same function. But do be careful of wording: there may now be lighters of your description, but this does not mean the older type no longer exists in some countries (esp. non-industrialized). Also, explain coaster sized for us landlubbers? :-) Cheers, look forward to seeing more about the above, JackyR | Talk 19:40, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Lighter under tower bridge c1928.jpg
Image:Lighter under tower bridge c1928.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.
