Hi, Peter!  If you go here ( & look at the capture dates there are some still sailing, like this one -
Actually, maybe someone could come up with an easier way of tracking down them all?

Hi Simon,

Thank you for the updates, it would be a very nice sight to see the 1971 built HONG BO 3 if she still is around.


Title: Re: SD 14s
Post by: SIMON SMITH on September 22, 2012, 02:45:53 pm
Hello Geir,

It would be nice to think that HONG BO 3 is still going but I have my doubts. The AIS transmissions are very sporadic. Her breaking was reported in Marine News Feb 2010 and I have seen no port movement reports since. The last Chinese crew records I can find on Goole are for September 2009. It is not uncommon for demolished vessels to appear on occasional rogue AIS transmissions.on


Title: Re: SD 14s
Post by: Geir Vinnes on September 23, 2012, 02:32:08 am
Hi Simon,

Thanks for the explanation, I have also seen some ships on AIS that I tought had been broken up so I guess the chances to see HONG BO 3 is small, but we can always hope  :).
Thanks for the link Bjørn.


Title: Re: SD 14s
Post by: davidships on September 23, 2012, 11:41:50 pm
Perhaps it is as well if HONG BO 3 is no more:  her last port state inspection at Xiamen in Oct 2009 led to detention with 11 defects, including hull-cracking, corrosion of hatchcovers, beams, frames, floors, bulkheads and hull; and problems with survival craft and rescue boats aws well as firefighting.  Oh and something wrong with the main engine also.  Only three months earlier she had been detained at Qinzhou.

Whatever was showing up as HONG BO 3 earlier this year was at Baima (NE of Fuzhou) 10/2-10/7, passing W of Taiwan the following day, heading directly south towards the Philippines.  ETA was given as 13/10 at San Du Ao, near Baima.  Looks more like a fishing vessel on a 3-month trip.

DAE SAN (IMO 7614733) Don't know what the casualty at Duqm was, but she subsequently arrived at Salalah, and sailed eastwards in late August.

Hi Bjørn,

Thats the chemical tanker HONGBO NO. 3 with Imo. 8401743.
I guess David is right, she was in a bad condition and has most likely been broken up as reported, but it would be very nice to see her if she was still around  :).


Title: Re: SD 14s
Post by: Phil English on September 27, 2012, 02:43:57 pm

In fact, it isn't. There are two distinct AIS transmissions, one from Hongbo No. 3 (IMO 8401743) and one from Hong Bo 3 (IMO 7104180). There are also separate MMSI numbers

IMO 7104180 is actually transmitting today with the following info:

More info

Title: Re: SD 14s
Post by: Phil English on September 27, 2012, 03:31:52 pm
Unfortunately Bjorn, that's just confusing matters. What you have there is the chemical tanker Hongbo. No. 3 IMO 8401743

I can assure that Hong Bo 3 IMO 7104180/MMSI 515832000 is also currently transmitting as per my previous message. Unfortunately I can't provide a link as I'm using an internal company system which uses satellite as well as land-based data. The site that you are using does not currently pick up this vessel.


Title: Re: SD 14s
Post by: SIMON SMITH on September 29, 2012, 08:24:14 am
I have received confirmation from the owners (Hongbo Shipping Hong Kong) that HONG BO 3 (7104180) was delivered to shipbreakers at Xia Bai Shi, Fujian on 10th October 2009. This area is also referred to as San Du Ao.

A couple of other updates:

SAFINA 2 arrived Karachi 160912 to load cement.
NADEEN was listed to sail from Karachi this morning.

Post by: Geir Vinnes on September 30, 2012, 02:20:15 am
Thanks for the updates Simon, nice to know for sure as it was a bit strange with the AIS transmission.

Best regards,

Excellent stuff Simon and a good illustration of why it's important not to place too much emphasis on AIS transmissions.

Hello together

today 31.03.2013, a SD 14 passed us in the Arabian sea, around 6 hours from Salalah. The course seems to go to India, no AIS signals no identification at all.
Unfortunately the visibility was also not the best but it looks that the vessel was quite similiar to the Dae San from far away.
Anybody a idea which SD 14 is scheduled for srapping.

Best regards

Title: Re: SD 14s
Post by: SIMON SMITH on April 01, 2013, 09:46:10 am
Hello Andreas,

This is most likely the DAE SAN. There are so few left now.  Broker reports gave Kolkata, where breaking has begun again recently, as her destination. SAFINA 2 arrived off Alang last week and GOLDEN LIGHT arrived at Hai Phong for breaking 30th March. FU SHENG 82 arrived at Zhangjiagang for breaking recently.

By my reckoning excluding DAE SAN there are just seven SD-14s(including Prinasa 121) left in trade now:


PHUONG MAI STAR and SUNRISE 6 remain laid-up at Saigon. AMAR is anchored at Batam. SUNRISE 18 is presumably still hard aground off Indonesia.

DONG BINH has recently been removed from the Hai Phong list. Any information on her would be welcome.

ZHENG YANG 3 remains unaccounted for. Possibly laid-up but most likely demolished in China (last AIS off Dalian in September).

One or two wrecks remain including the LUNDOGE near Douala.

Hello Simon

Thanks for the update, it seems really that it was the Dae San. Also another source gave the info that the vessel was in Salalah at 30.03.2013.
It,s a pity to see this beauties gone more an more by now.

best regards out of the Arabian Sea

DAE SAN has been renamed OCEAN DAWN (KHM) and is due to arrive at Chittagong today for demolition.
