1  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / Re: Mayflower Park Southampton on: May 13, 2017, 03:04:08 pm
Mayflower Park development has been a long time coming. Plans will make it easier to gat close to the ships but someone has to stump up £450 million + inflation. see http://www.discoversouthampton.co.uk/future/city-centre-masterplan/royal-pier. Its rather a long read.

Take Patrick's advice and get hands on. Check prices as UK Amazon link is nowhere near the cheapest. I've been using a FZ1000 for a year. Parked my Canon SLR and lenses in a cupboard.
Has horizon indicator to prevent taking ships going up/down hill; and can alter for over or under exposure with a click while viewing the exposure either through view finder or fold out/rotate LCD screen. IMHO highly recommended.

For free imaging software .. very easy to use .. try http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm . Also on the site is image resizing software, also free. I've used both in preference to Photoshop (also on my desktop)for quick improvement to photos. (I've no association with Faststone)

Subsequent para translation confirming second sinking .."At 6:33 am Maersk Batler reported the sinking of the former Maersk Shipper by 155 meters (estimated position: 48 ° 00.9N-006 ° 37.0W, in the west of Sein Island for more than 70 nq ). He pointed out that there were no casualties and no risk of pollution and resumed his route to Turkey, the initial destination of the convoy for deconstruction."

Hi Phil ... french translated to english ...The Maersk Battler confirms the towing of two hulls, empty and decontaminated, of ships type supply. The convoy is on its way to Turkey to be deconstructed. While the two hulls are towed to each other, the former Maersk Searcher sank by 140 m of bottom following a waterway (estimated position: 48 ° 04.6N-006 ° 24.4W , In the west of Īle de Sein for more than 60 nq). This led to the capsizing of the second hull, the former Maersk Shipper, which nevertheless remains afloat and in tow. The convoy then proceeds slowly to the west to investigate and move away from the shipping routes. The vessel does not request assistance.
Question do Maersk actually know where their ships/hulks actually are?

Depends on the cargo type. These might help in general terms. http://me-freight.com/pages/shipowners-costs-calculation.html - second paragraph and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stowage_factor

Patrick, Fz1000 is a very good choice. So good I gave up with Canon and collection of zoom lenses. I generally stick to Aperture or Shutter modes but if you need just a little more zoom without using digital trickery the Intelligent Auto mode is also excellent. As always read the manual, you can alter lighting settings in an instant re sun and gloomy weather and I prefer using viewfinder with horizon display.  I use vivid colours option. The video option is extremely good.
Have just uploaded DHT PHOENIX (only one on site) taken with Intelligent Auto at range of 1.7 km. Still  a bit of zoom in reserve.  http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2521027

Allan, see https://www.fugro.com/docs/default-source/Expertise-docs/Our-World/Vessels/rv-discovery.pdf . Quotes UK registry as 913523 (not IMO).

Have just done the calculation re obtaining IMO number + check number. 9135230 does not compute as a legit IMO number.

Hi Allan, not sure if it helps but prior to 2007 (when became research vessel) it was USA trawler. [2007 cv to research vessel] - 1992 SEA ANGEL, 2001 THUAN LOI - 2006 ASHLEY NICOLE - 2007 RV DISCOVERY (data from Miramar). Miramar does not show 9135230. The only reference I can find to 9135230 is in Fleetmon which highlights it as erroneous.
