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?

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If Grosstonnage doesn't exist anymore, does it mean that data (like name changings) is no longer updated?

I found a yacht - MARIPOSA 3A - that looks absolutely similar to one on your pic except that her accommodation is brown:

Those are the hold vents. Usually can be seen on many 90s-onwards built multipurpose freighters that have 2 holds (usually of different lengths) & these vents placed in between.  Freighters that are some 100 & less meters long with a single box-like hold have vents boxes before the hold on forecastle & after it near the superstructure.

For the second bulker, beside the KOTOR, there are enough of sister ships by the same shipyard, but, as I searched, there's no such site where their owner would list & have pdf's with GA plans of them.

Quite big for a model tug of 81cm long!!!  http://www.lollos-modellbau.de/index.php?r=main/verkauf_bugsier3

Wonderful models, Arne & Daniel!  Left me almost speechless from seeing!  Grin

How long are they & are they scratch-built?

Kyle, thanks for your input. But my point is that it's another static page with like 30 pics showing one & the same cruise ships which would stay like that even in a year time period.
I like the "Least viewed" ships - if I understand right, it shows the least viewed photos among all in the database & that would mean that window is dynamic as it sorta gives attention to those few photos.

What I think is really missing is an easy access to any ship/photo - a sorta additional window of 5 random photos that will change every time the page is refreshed. I was bringing that up for a long time ever since the site change in 2010, but we still have that random photo of the day that gets displayed for 24h & that would mean only 365 photos among all 2 millions are shown per year...............

What's the point/purpose of that section of the site?  Apart from being slightly informative, it's just another static page, clogged with "boring" cruise ships!

 Huh
