Title: Heavy lift/heavy load ships
Post by: Pilot Frans on June 10, 2018, 09:26:09 am
Talking about diffent catecories.

I think the name Heavy lift vessel is also not quite correct.
I think it's beter to call it Heavy load vessel.
as most of this type of ships doesn't have a crane to lift something.

There has been discussion about this before

Derek, who looks after the general cargo categories, has also raised this subject with me.  So it is a good time to have a discussion about it so that we can decide on categories and provide some straighforward guidance to all members.
