The average ship movements in a 24 hour period is about 30.
From 17-00hrs yesterday to 16-00hrs today there were 43 on the daily ship schedule.
The geared bulk carrier, Great Ocean was inward bound this morning with a length of 591 feet, 180 metres, the biggest ship to arrive in the last 3 months.
I am not sure what the limit is in length because the river is quite difficult to navigate in some places.
There was a ship due this morning called, Kenta Maru, ship schedule suggested it was a reefer, i looked on Marine Traffic this morning and it was shown off the Iberian coast.
At anchor was a ship called the Limco Maru, so i thought it must be an error on the ship schedule, i looked at Marine Traffic again a couple of hours later and the Kenta Maru was approaching Bangkok pilot station.

The most ship movements Ive noted in one afternoon is 24 plus 1 tug, 3 bunker tankers and one vessel at anchor, and still enough time in between to do the Bangkok Post crossword ! Oddly the only bulk carrier I have noted passing there was one of my first sightings, LOVE ME TENDER. The place to see those is of course Koh Si Chang anchorage. I only went there once, taking the ferry from the pier at Sriracha for a trip to the island, quite a choppy trip on the way over, but improving later and luckily not downwind of any tapioca loading operations.
