Sorry for the late reply guys!

David, maybe I chose the wrong expression from the dictionary. Smiley
Anyway, according to German criminal law a heavy shock can be treated as bodily injury.
Bodily injury by negligence implies that a person was abused physically and/or that this person's health was damaged. (Looked this up on the internet and hope the translation is comprehensible...)  Grin

Rick, you're absolutely right. At the moment authorities are quite careful. Strong winds here lately and even some feeders get tug assistance during arrival, departure and terminal hopping - the big ones anyway since the accident.

And yes, I'm fine (according to circumstances) Smiley
Hope you are well, too!

Best wishes
Jens
3  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / ENI and IMO numbers on European inland vessels on: March 09, 2019, 11:44:29 am
Hello fellow shipspotters!

Last year I've worked my way through the complete inland dry cargo vessels category and inland tankers category adding ENI numbers (and also some IMO numbers) which was quite a tedious task.

The eight-digit ENI (European number of identification) is as unique as an IMO number and as such a valuable tool to find all photos of a certain ship on this website. The ENI is not only used for ships of the above mentioned categories, but also for inland passenger ships, ferries, barges, fire fighting vessels, tugs etc. But always keep in mind that it is only used for European inland vessels!

Unfortunately I see that a certain number of regular contributors to all of these categories for whatever reason don't fill in the number in the box on the photo upload page. Like the IMO number the ENI number is a requirement for the upload of a photo and NOT optional to fill in.

The number is displayed on the side and/or the stern of these vessels, for example (ENI 02323514):
http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=1481325


If you can't find the ENI on the ship itself have a look on the websites listed here under point 3:

http://www.shipspotting.com/support/faq.php?category=Inland%20Vessels

Or just try and search by name for the appropriate ship here on Shipspotting.com

As I mentioned above some of these vessels even have IMO numbers (especially inland tankers).
If applicable add the IMO number, too. (Lately I've also found a lot of photos where the ENI was given, but the IMO was not.)

Last but not least... There's a special type of Dutch inland vessels called "Beunschip", see e.g.
https://www.debinnenvaart.nl/schip_detail/4948/

These should be uploaded to the Inland special purpose vessels category not Inland DRY cargo vessels.

Here's a short video where you can see the cargo handling of a beunschip, I guess you shouldn't try this with a dry cargo vessel...

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best wishes to all,
Jens

After analyzing Ever Given's blackbox police said that the collision was caused by a navigational error, rudder failure or other technical defects could be excluded.

The master of Ever Given is under investigation over endangering shipping traffic and bodily injury caused by negligence.

The damage of the HADAG ferry "Finkenwerder" is estimated to sum up to a six-digit amount of money...

Seeing the damage today with my own eyes the consequences of the collision could have been much worse if there had been passengers aboard...

Photos of FINKENWERDER can meanwhile be found in the "Causalties"-category.

Best wishes,
Jens

Ever Given (IMO 9811000) on Saturday morning severely damaged Hamburg harbour ferry Finkenwerder (ENI 05111310) which was berthed at the Blankenese ferry station. The ferry station's pontoon was also damaged.

Police assumes that strong winds at the time of Ever Given's departure for Rotterdam caused the collision.

Luckily no one has been harmed. There were no passengers on the ferry at the time of the collision. The crew of three of course was extremely shocked.

For the time being here's a report, some photos and a short video (in German only, though):

I hope that no one died because of the fire. In Greece it was worse:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_Attica_wildfires

Seeing you're photos I'm quite concerned about air quality though... but judging from your post you seem to be fine.

So I take my time and wait for your excellent photos to come again when this crisis is over.

Cheer up my friend!

All the best from Hamburg,
Jens

I'm using Firefox 60.0.2 on Windows 10 built 18.03, Windows defender and Adblock Plus.
No obvious problems with the site with that configuration.

Windows defender shows all systems green...

Seeing your photos I agree with you David. Malte found the right place.

When I first saw the photo I immediately thought that this must be some place along Große Elbstraße (somehow because of the house with the white balconies in the background), but since I didn't move to Hamburg until 1992 I couldn't say it for sure and didn't dare to come forward with it.

Cheers,
Jens
12  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Up to € 135 m for German training vessel "Gorch Fock" on: March 21, 2018, 07:07:37 pm
Me neither, Bob, but according to the master of "Gorch Fock" the ship is "fullfilling an essential task in training new recruits". And for many officers of the German navy the ship is more than a training ship - she's identity-generating and a piece of tradition.

Uwe, isn't it in the media almost on a daily basis? Large parts of the equipment of Bundeswehr, Bundesmarine and Bundesluftwaffe are in a deplorable state. Not too long ago for example (if I remember correctly) 6 out of 6 active German submarines where under repair at the same time. In 2017 seven out of eight Airbus A400M were under repair or inspection at the same time etc. etc.

Our ministers of finance exaggerated the money saving a bit and our ministers of defence... well, I can't recall a single one who did a good job. (For example: zu Guttenberg was occupied with trying to draw the curtain over his copied dissertation; de Maizière was just a fill-in after Guttenberg's resignation and Mrs. von der Leyen's priority were children's day-care centres in the army...) Any more questions? Grin
13  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Up to € 135 m for German training vessel "Gorch Fock" on: March 20, 2018, 02:16:14 pm
A real bargain... Repair and modernisation of German naval training vessel "Gorch Fock" (IMO 5133644) will cost up to € 135 m according to sources of the German Ministry of Defence.

Since January 2016 the 60-year-old ship is under repair at Elsflether Werft on the Hunte river, but work on the ship was stopped by order of the Ministry of Defence in January 2018 when it became obvious that costs would be much higher than anticipated. But as € 45 m already have been spent and another € 25 m are stipulated by contract the Ministry now decided to let the work continue.

The shell plating will have to be exchanged almost completely, upper deck and tween deck will be replaced, the engine has to be overhauled...

A new building was considered, but this would have meant the loss of the already invested € 70 m. Also a new ship wouldn't have entered service until 2025(!).

Now "Gorch Fock" is scheduled to re-enter service in the first half of 2019...

Just the other day I was talking to a fellow shipspotter and we were wondering how many container ships might be sailing around the Seven Seas - our guesses were far out! Grin

Thanks for the big effort and sharing it with us Andreas!

Best wishes
