Official BV class records confirm that MCS Lenie (IMO 9522221) was built by Damen Shipyards, Hardinxveld, and delivered 29th November 2008.

I think you might be referring to the previous MCS Lenie (IMO 9176735) which was delivered in 1997 and now named "SD Kyle of Lochalsh"

Yes it seems that it has to be reiterated time and time again. The whole point of Equasis is that itís information has to be made freely available.

Hi Emmanuel,

Unfortunately, AIS is never 100% accurate. It's simple human error either with algorithms used to create the data which don't take into account nuances with MMSI numbers, or with shipboard personnel inputting bad data.There are even cases where vessels use AIS equipment discarded by other ships which are not re-programmed correctly, and sometimes deliberate malpractice from crews who intend to deceive. I don't believe that the last two scenarios were responsible for your issue. However, there are ways to check if the data you are seeing is genuine. Pay close attention to dates. Are the arrival dates long in the past or way in the future? Look at the track, does it seem feasible that a ship could undertake the reported voyage in that time frame? these are not fail safe mechanisms, but can give you a clue as to whether the data is real. As of now, Marine Traffic shows the "A" in the Philippines with no sign of it being at Malta recently. If you spot an error, I'm sure that Marine Traffic would like to hear from you so that they can investigate it their end. Unless they are aware of it, there's not much they can do about it.

In any case enjoy your shipspotting, remember years ago we just used to go to the waterfront not really knowing what we might see :-)

I don't think Diavlos Pride towed anything into Aliaga. It looks like she headed west from off Salamina for 'Open sea' before turning east off Sicily when, presumably, the order came in to head for Aliaga. She did not enter Palermo.

Allan,

Only LNG carriers can be configured as FSRUs, as their purpose is to regasify and deliver natural gas. LPG carriers are different animals entirely. Modern FSRUs are designed as dual purpose transportation and regasification vessels which can oeprate as offshore installations or as bog-standard LNG carriers carrying LNG from A to B. Some older vessels have been converted but because they are tied to long-term FSRU projects, the only thing preventing them from returning to regular LNG transportation when projects are over is the cost of re-activation versus age.

I'm surprised that members are still concerned by the 'not secure' messages. I thought Cedric had explained it very well, with reassurances:

Hi all,

As mentioned here a few pages back, the "not secure" banners in your browser only mean that this website is not using the https protocol. The technical team is working on this, but since it is a pretty big operation this may take some time. The banner "not secure" is therefor not really a problem or safety problem with the website as such, only that traffic between your computer and the shipspotting.com server is not encrypted. This is not a major issue since no financial or confidential information is exchanged here.

I hope this makes things clearer for everyone.

Does anyone know the whereabouts of the elderly Varun LPG tanker MAHARSHI DATTATREYA (1983, IMO 8128975)? Appears to be still in operation, but no update on AIS since 28/10/'17.

MAHARSHI DATTATREYA is lying abandoned off Dubai in poor condition after the failure of owner Varun Shipping. She was expected to be an auction candidate earlier this year but nothing happened. it's believed that there are numerous legal hurdles to overcome before she can be sold.
