Today I came upon this ship:http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/search.php?search_imo=8033807
A tanker, built in 1973, names Charlotte F and Paradox, status: dead
Investigating a little further into Charlotte F's life I came uponhttps://www.binnenvaart.eu/motortankschip/1234-paradox.html
So she received a new bow-section and mid-section in 1999 at Oltenita (yard no. 606) in Romania and is still happily sailing the Seven Seas...
I searched for photos of her after her 1999-refit and found these:http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/search.php?search_imo=9215024
And now I have two IMO-numbers for the same ship...
This would make sense if she had received a new aft-section at Oltenita in 1999.
But with a new bow-section, mid-section AND aft-section this would be a new-building.
Both 8033807 and 9215024 are valid IMO-numbers. Equasis only knows the latter.
DNV/GL where IMO 9215024 is classed states that the ship was built at Oltenita in 1999 (yard no. 606, just as it says on Binnenvaart.eu).http://vesselregister.dnvgl.com/vesselregister/vesseldetails.html?vesselid=30933
Looking at Charlotte F and Jacoba-H bow and mid-section are clearly different. The aft-section shows only little differences (anchor arrangement and only one anchor aft with Jacoba-H, but two with Charlotte F).
Is someone able to shed some light on this?
