1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / How did you find Shipspotting.com? on: August 30, 2015, 01:10:37 pm
Out of interest/curiosity, how did either of you find this site in the first place & what made you to come here over & over?  Grin

For me it was in autumn 2007 when I finally got my first (although slow) internet & went on searching for various ship pics I could find, saving the interesting ones in case I'd like to try modeling some. I was mostly coming across some small sites, writing down the url's of good ones. Of course, main thing was searching for photos of all ships I could remember seeing in Kaliningrad over the years.  That was until I googled for OOSTERSCHELDEBORG which I saw in 2003 & in results there was a photo (no longer available) from here, so after browsing around a little I understood this site has more ships than I could view in one go compared to those little private sites! So I was coming again & again, mostly as a lurker & mostly checking the Heavy Lift Vessels & Floating Cranes categories since those were of utmost interest to me.  Eventually in July 2008 I got my camera, could make pics & finally registered here...

Regards,
Denis

Even if the Unknown vessel is in the "Ships Under Construction" category?   There are many such ones from long ago, still not identified.

Don't have a GA plan, but I found there's someone who was already making a model of that ship:
http://www.steinhagen-modelltechnik.de/htm/esvagt.htm
http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/archive/index.php?t-22629.html
Maybe it's possible to connect & ask that person.
Photos & infos of the ship: http://www.tugboats.de/esvagt_connector_article.html
Hermann might try ask the owner too: http://www.esvagt.com/fleet/multirole-vessels/esvagt-observer

There are like 4 sister ships built by Odense Steel Shipyard:  Esvagt Observer/Connector/Dee/Don.

Looks like a some 80s Japanese-built bulker...


There's your bulker - http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=1779559
MARILIS T - IMO 8314809

Kind regards!

That would mean 88962 photos were deleted... partly cause of those who left & requested to delete all their some 1000-10000 shots.

I'd say any ship. But I'm sure those who are interested in having their photo as 2000000th would select the best shot & have everything ready to just click "Upload Photo" at the right moment. Grin

To the fellow members...take your camera and equipment, move your ass from the chair in front of your PC monitor, go out, and do SHIPSPOTTING. ITS NICE. Enjoy taking your own shots.

Great idea!  *Looks at the AIS*  Same empty port...  Aw man!  Undecided


Either way, it's nice seeing "Any beautiful B&W ships for today?" since this mostly is the only site I see ships everyday, but if one member would just go ahead & make a list of sites where I can see same beautiful B&W ships in just few clicks, that would be nice too! 
It's fine if you own those B&W photos/copyright from someone else you post here since they can't be found elsewhere, but reposting what's available for anyone from other site anyway is not really what this site is about.

so your basic "search" function is lacking and useless; If, for
example, I try to search the vessel L'Austral I posted pics of
yesterday, it does not come up at all.

For that case you use http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/advanced-search.php, input Austral only & select "Anywhere (slow)".  Might select additional options too.

Denis, the source of that information, the Gross Tonnage site has closed down....

I know it closed in the end of June, but what confusing is that infos are gone for some ships only recently.

Noticed recently that for many ships the Vessel Identification, Technical Data, Additional Information modules showing nothing like if the IMO is wrong, while AIS Information & Port History are still there.
Something should be done about it, because it's teasing like if the IMO is incorrect, especially if it's one or few photos from one member of a ship that no longer exists.

If there's no crew, then how would the mooring or lashing or attaching a tow line be carried out?

Had to go through my uploads & delete some 10 low quality photos...  so HA, can't pick on me!  Tongue

Judging by the size of the ship, there should have been at least 2-3 more bow thrusters. Also, some 2 more stern thrusters as well & all of them to be placed above the shafts.  Actually, for a modern cruise ship it'd be common to just use some 2-4 azipods at the stern rather than all of what's currently there.

Better would be having on a Add Photo page a some note near the name input field saying that a member should type it in caps.  Or call the IT team to implement some code in there which would automatically put name in caps regardless how it's written.

Maybe an option for admins or trusted users to edit incorrect (from Grosstonnage too) data for any ship?
If Grosstonnage doesn't exist anymore, does it mean that data (like name changings) is no longer updated?
