1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Several passengers dead, missing in tour boat sinking in Budapest, Hungary on: June 11, 2019, 10:52:54 pm
Almost two weeks after the tragedy the wreck of Hableany was raised from a depth of 9 m.

4 more bodies were found within the wreck among them Hableany's master and a six year old child.

According to German media at least 24 people died, 4 are still missing...

Four days since the tragedy happened and still no trace of the 21 missing passengers...
The Danube's high water level, strong currents and bad visibility conditions are impeding the search.

The master of "Viking Sigyn" has meanwhile been arrested for a 30 day-period accused of endangering river traffic. According to prosecution logs and videos would prove this.
However, prosecution didn't say what exactly the master did and/or failed to do...

Judging from the video the passengers and crew of Hableany didn't have the slightest chance. Just about ten seconds from impact to capsizing. What a tragedy! Sad

David, the message you linked to appears (at least on my system) opening another site of Shipspotting.com after blocking the first message on the initial website.

I blocked this on both Windows 10 and macOS Mojave (in both cases using Firefox). It did not reappear on Windows 10, but it does on macOS Mojave.

Hi all,

opening the Shipspotting.com homepage a small window pops up. The text in the window says ,in very bad German,

"http://shipspotting.com bittet eine Erlaubnis Benachrichtiggunggen anzuzeigen

(Shipspotting.com ask for permission to show messages)

There are two buttons, "block" and "allow". I'm not inclined to click any of them.

This happens both on Windows 10 using Firefox and on macOS Mojave using Firefox.

Is this supposed to be a new feature or is it malware?

Cheers,
Jens

PS:
I've logged in via the log-in on the Forum page. There this pop-up window doesn't appear.

Must be really boring to wait for evacuation for these passengers posting videos and photos on social media in the meantime Huh

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
11  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
