Indeed, the German government allowed € 120 Mio. for a harbour museum at Hamburg, € 26 Mio. alone will be spent on Peking's transport back to Germany and for restoration. Peking will be the landmark of this museum. No doubt that without the government's money she would already be scrapped by now...

Thanks for that, Jürgen. On the TV they said there were many shipspotters waiting at Brunsbüttel.
No photos here yet...

Or are they all waiting for Wednesday when she'll be towed to Wewelsfleth? Grin

Flying-P-Liner PEKING after 85 years finally returned home to Germany.

The 1911-built ship arrived this afternoon from New York at Brunsbüttel Elbe harbour after 11 days aboard COMBI DOCK III.

On Wednesday she will be towed up the Elbe to Peters shipyard at Wewelsfleth. Peters will restore her to her old self. Restoration is said to take about three years (according to local TV news today).

Once finished PEKING will then become a musuem ship at Hamburg where she was built by Blohm & Voss.

Well, you are who you are and you do what you do - that's the package she gets. If she can't accept that then good riddance. At least that's the way I handle such things Grin

I completely agree with the Captain here...
5  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / IMO number confusion on: April 02, 2017, 09:34:36 pm
Hi all!

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 upon

https://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?

Cheers
Jens

Hi Joseph, I've encountered this problem with Safari, too (nowadays I'm using Firefox).

I think I remember that I was advised to delete the cookies via the browser's settings-menue and after that the problem was gone.

Cheers

Hi csaba, which browser do you use? I'm using Firefox and get the same messages. Probably a Firefox-update to remind us that log-in to Shipspotting and Equasis is not encrypted. If you look at your address bar before logging in you see a crossed-out closed lock. If for example you have an account with Amazon you'll see a green closed lock in the left of your address bar, which means log-in is encrypted.

IT-experts please correct me if the explanation is wrong...

Cheers

German news now report that Maersk's losses in 2016 piled up to US-$ 1,94 billion. Total revenue dropped from US-$ 40,4 to US-$ 35,5 billion due to constant low freight rates and the drop of the oil price...

Jörg, David - thank you both very much! Smiley

I've changed the photo titles and added the IMO numbers accordingly.

Cheers

Hi all,

can anyone possibly identify these two ferries, name and possible IMO number?

Thanks to all!

Oh, that's really sad! I hope that this isn't the end for her, after all she was built in 1930 if my information is correct...

Tomas, I should have known from the first minute that this video was Norwegian (or at least Scandinavian)... It's eerie! Grin
I have no idea what kind of overdose they had, but it wasn't just chocolate...
12  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / Re: Which one is it? on: January 09, 2017, 01:32:38 pm
Don't know why, but I was so focused on the name "Dimitris" that I didn't search for a photo under the other names Huh

Looking good, I'd say.

Again a big thanks for the help! Smiley

Cheers
Jens

Hi all,

this time I got one from the archives (yes, actually it is).

http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2596587

This one was posted with IMO number 5076157, but as a member pointed out in an error report, superstructure and gear of the two ships are quite different.

I searched Miramar and tried Google, but all I came up with was a Dimitris built in 1961 by Weser Seebeck in Bremerhaven which was renamed Baquir in 1970, in 1972 Hoogly, in 1974 Lok Adhar, in 1979 Varuna Adhar and which was scrapped in 1989 (this would at least match the name and year given in Paul's photo), but I found no photo of this one for comparison. The IMO number of this one was 5090127.

Does someone have an idea?

Cheers
Jens
14  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / Re: Which one is it? on: January 05, 2017, 08:37:36 pm
So it's IMO 5028095. That was my guess, but I didn't know for sure.

Thanks to all of you guys for the help! Smiley

kind regards

Hi all,

I came across some photos of a research & survey vessel called "Altair", but found different IMO numbers with different members' photos.

http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2510808

This one was built in 1962 in Germany and foundered last year (according to Miramar).

http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=477245

Also built in 1962, but in the USA...

Can someone advise me which is the correct IMO number for this one?

Cheers,
Jens
