My source is very reliable: a bloke down the pub!

A more credible rumour on the Gravesend waterfront is that she will be stand-in for one of the locals that’s due for drydocking.

It will be interesting to see what happens if the UK decides to cancel Brexit, which is looking increasingly possible. They say there will be no changes to their crewing arrangements. There, too, we shall see!

With so may Miramar/Non-IMO numbers appearing on the site nowadays, is't it time for Admins to clarify the site rules on the subject? 
Do we use Miramar ID or not and wouldn't there be a copyright problem if we did?

As far as I know, unless you know someone who works there and is 'in the know', the only way I know is to watch for them coming on AIS.

To what tune was this sung? Mahim Sahib's BI song was to the tune of the Scots song "A Gordon for Me", which was about the Gordon Highlanders regiment of the British Army.

Simon: I suppose my problem with this site is that I seem to be in a minority here in that I have had a lifelong (hobby and professional) keen interest in ships, their ownership, their histories and how they work. Photography is merely a tool that I have employed in following my hobby. It would seem we must agree to differ on this subject.

You can post a lot more photos much more quickly when you don't bother to include any extra info! I agree with Arnes
11  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Does anyone know what type of ship is it? on: September 04, 2018, 04:10:59 pm
It is a SA15 standard design, icebreaking general cargo ship built in Finland in the 1980s for the USSR.They were also known as the NORILSK class (after the lead ship) and 19 of them were built. This one's name is KANDALAKSHA and it was bult by Oy Wärtsilä Ab, Turku in 1984.It went to Chinese breakers in 2010

There are already more than enough categories and I don't think we need any more. Interesting cargo handling ops could possibly be included in the 'Ships Deck' category but in my opinion we don't need any more 'bits of ships' categories.

I’d rather be known as a ship ENTHUSIAST than ship SPOTTER but my wife insists in calling me the latter (among other things)
Anyway:
A: I don’t have to leave home to see ships. The Thames runs past the bottom of my back garden (1.2 km
   away).
B. I don’t get too much time to read a book. I’m too busy doing household chores (under orders from
   she who must be obeyed).
C. My camera is usually at the ready so that I can jump in the car for a 7-minute drive (if I stick to
   legal speeds) to a photo vantage point
D. If a stranger asks me about a ship, they'll regret it because I am such a know-all that I will bore 
   backside off with detail. (They did ask for it!)
E. Although I take lots of ship photos, I am not very interested in photography and when looking at
   other people’s photos (as on this site), it’s ship details I’m interested in, not the light or the
   composition (or seeing four shots in a row of the same ship). I also hate drone photos. That’s
   probably because I haven’t got one but also because they are illegal over the Thames shipping
   channels. (Take note if you intend coming here with one. Perhaps the RAF will be scrambled to shoot
   it down. I’d like to see that!)
F. On a cruise, I take as many photos of ships as I do of the places we visit. My wife moans about
   that.
G: “Prettier” and “cooler” are not words I’d associate with ships. I’m interested in them all and I
   always have it in mind that they are just machines. So I don't get all soppy and sentimental when
   one goes to the scrapyard.
15  Shipspotters all over the world / Consultations and review of site standards / Re: Catagory standards on: August 13, 2018, 01:46:25 pm
I wasn't suggesting that anyone looks up IACS standards. I was just trying to explain the difference between a bulk carrier and an open-hatcher (also known as open-hatch bulkers). Hopefully someone learned something new about ships by it. The hobby is much more interesting when you learn a little about how ships work.
