31  Shipspotters all over the world / Scale Models / What happened to the PACIFICAT catamarans? on: December 24, 2016, 08:03:11 am
What happened to the Canadian PACIFICAT catamarans Pacificat Discovery, Voyager and Explorer? Pictures on this and other websites show them as laid-up at Abu Dhabi in 2004. But are they still there or scrapped? Their AIS is not functioning any more.

My way of working:
- in microsoft excell type your text in one cell in the font and size that you need
- make the background of the cell the right color
- make also surrounding cells the same color
- make a test print on normal paper
- print the tekst on a sheet of adhesive adress labels
- cut out what you need and stick it to the model
- (also small figures or jpg-files or logo-files can be stored in one cell)
Will probably no work for plastic models but with paper of cardboard models it works very well.
33  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / Re: Ship spotting holiday location Rotterdam on: August 15, 2016, 08:38:57 am
Rotterdam-area is great for shipspotting but the problem is the position of the sun.
In case you stay at Maassluis, it is always opposite of you, so bad pictures.
Crossing with the ferry to Rozenburg is better.
Two hotels at Rozenburg: Hotel Rozenburg and Hotel Pico (have not been there myself).
At Rozenburg you can sit along the New Waterway near the the ferry-landing.
Hotels on website www . booking . com (type in the name of the town: Rozenburg, Maassluis, etc.)
Staying at Rozenburg and owning a car give you also to possibility to drive to the far end of the "peninsula": there you see Europoort and New Waterway.
Take a look at Google-Maps for orientation.

To return to the original topic: I personally also think to much pictures remain on the site that do not meet the standards.
A very valid reason is that the admin's have to check to many pictures each day.
Maybe it is an idea that the newly appointed photo-editors are also give the right to delete pictures, but move them first to "deletions holding" and the admin's themself have the final saying and move them to "deletions"?
Just a idea.............. 
35  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / ADONIA - IMO 9210220 at Cuba on: May 02, 2016, 04:55:33 pm
Dutch newspapers report that the cruise ship ADONIA - IMO 9210220 visited Cuba. Now ADONIA is in my opinion owned by P&O but seems to be chartered out as an AMERICAN vessel. First one to visit Cuba since 1978. See the picture in the colours of Fathom? No picture in this livery so far on this website?
36  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / DFDS scrubbers in the ro-ro-fleet on: August 10, 2015, 10:32:22 am
I think that DFDS has now completed the installation of scrubbers on its modern ro-ro-cargovessels.
The sisters Britannia / Selandia / Suecia Seaways have an installation between the funnels.
In the Ficaria / Magnolia / Petunia / Primula / Begonia / Freesia group the funnels are rebuilt.
And in the Athena / Regina / Victoria - class the funnels were modified as well.
Or do I miss one or two vessels?
37  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Fred Olsen 4Bs in Bergen on: July 19, 2015, 04:14:42 pm

And what is going to be the alternative for that?
A lot of time and effort has been spent to add the IMO to each picture.
But now all the relevant info for the IMO, such as ex-names is missing.
Shipspotting.com is now just "another site with lots of pictures"?
Have the webmasters a tactical plan for this?

I think she was French built for a French company.
Can not find any MMSI or other details to my regret.

I find it also disappointing that more and more photo's appear here taken in the evening or even at night. Or with bad lightning, more "artistic" than "shipspotting".
41  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Russian passengership BAYKAL info? on: January 07, 2015, 07:15:58 am
What has happened with the Kalinin-class passengership BAYKAL, IMO 5401352.
Several internet sources mention: in 1991 laid-up te Sochi, in 2001 shortly active again and later laid-up at Vladivostok.
Marine News of World Ship Society: scrapped in 1998 at Vietnam but not confirmed.
Where is she now?
Thank you.............
42  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Know the SOYA MARU NO 11 ? on: November 19, 2014, 06:47:41 am
Anyone know what has happened with the Japanese ferry SOYA MARU NO 11 (built 1986, IMO 8518924).
No trace of her on the internet and not found either in the registers of WSS Marine News.
Something happened in 1997 but what?
Thank you!

I find it rather sad that the whole discussion about "quality and quantity" starts again and members start complaining about the present situation.

If you want lots of pic's in any quality go to marinetraffic or vesselfinder.

If you want high quality pic's go to shipspotting

For me it is as simple as that. I stay with shipspotting!
44  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / Re: Nieuwe Waterweg "New Waterway"? on: September 15, 2014, 07:32:25 am
At the end of the peninsula that divides the New Waterway and the Europoort, there is a "hill" with excellent parking space. Position of the sun is also rather good for making pictures during most of the day. Arriving vessels can be seen still far away at sea. But warning: many big containerships do not pass this point but stay on the "Maasvlakte". Driving to the entrance of the "Maasvlakte" is a long way, especially after the recent enlargements.
45  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: MSC Orchestra dropped the port seemingly without a good reason ... on: June 24, 2014, 06:33:55 am
Why this rude comment?

On the ship are 3000 passengers that paid for a visit to that town.

I agree with Polsteam: it is interesting to know why the vessel turned around?
