The vessel with this IMO number is a tug named Moretto.The IMO number of Sinan Naiboglu is 7721976. So which is correct?

A week ago, Robert Smith asked for details of local events. Well, here's one. The South West Ship Show to be help on 28th April. Not in Portishead this year but at the BAWA Club in North Bristol. I've found the details here: https://www.mainlineandmaritime.co.uk/pages/south-west-ship-show

I suspect that the tug is Wyestorm - and the dock is King George V.

Very many thanks indeed, Patrick. These are the images that I had in mind.  Smiley

I seem to recall someone posting photos of new coasters passing through Budapest on their way from the shipyard at Komarno to the sea. I cannot now find these images, nor can I recall the name of the photographer. Can anyone help please?

"Hanny" first mentioned this in the Faversham Ships thread but his/her message seems to have disappeared.

It was excellent. I hope that it will be repeated next year.

This event has a chequered history - with very little of maritime interest. Five years ago there was a very unpleasant incident when two gentlemen staffing the Merchant Navy Association stall were treated abysmally by a council official. On their stall they had a bucket in which customers could place loose change following purchases. A council official claimed that that they needed a licence for such a "charity collection". Legally that was not a charity collection but the council official nevertheless created a very unpleasant scene - and even came the next day with a team of heavy-handed security personnel. All much to the embarrassment of the festival organiser.

I certainly expressed my thoughts to the leader of the Borough Council and requested a formal investigation.

Incidentally the 2017 festival was not staged by ABP Port of Ipswich but by Ipswich Borough Council with ABP as partners.

I see that the event has moved to a west coast venue this year. Greenock Town Hall on Saturday, 2 September.

It looks like it is going to be an excellent event. Details here:

Thank you, René.

But I'm afraid that some corrections are needed.

IMO number for ASKOE should be 9333450.

There has not been a Dutch Antilles flag since that area was dissolved in October 2010. The flag has been Curacao since then.

The country named as Moldavia should be Moldova. (Moldavia is a historical region which lasted until 1859)

Yes, you can stand on the aft deck as you can on the fast ferries to Dordrecht. In this photograph there is someone taking a photo of your ship from the aft deck:

The ferry moves at considerable speed so you have to be alert for photography.

In a post beneath a photograph of this vessel, a Brazilian port captain comments thus: "IRON ORE PELLETS ' OR SINTER FEED, and this are NOT DANGEROUS" (sic).

This is simply not correct.Iron ore fines can be VERY dangerous in some circumstances.

Railway wagons and stockpiles may be open to the elements.
Loading may take place in unsuitable weather conditions.
Local surveyors may not be fully conversant with sampling requirements.
Testing the cargo may use an unsuitable method (there are 3 currently in use).
Sampling laboratories may favour the shipper.

To say that iron ore pellets (fines) are not dangerous is simply incorrect. They are listed in Group A of the mandatory International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code. The dangers of these cargoes have been repeatedly stated in publications of the Nautical Institute, most recently in the current (April 1917) edition of "Seaways", the NI journal. Furthermore, I refer to the charter party clause from the West of England P&I Club.

http://www.westpandi.com/Publications/News/Archive/IMSBC-Code---Group-A-Cargoes---Charter-Party-Clause/

How can anyone be in doubt about the potential problems? To cloud the issue by referring to "normal iron ore" etc is unhelpful.

At the moment, we simply do not know why the STELLAR DAISY sank. But please do not let us minimise the dangers of the liquefaction of cargoes of iron ore fines.
