31  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: MSC Flaminia is on fire in the middle of the North Atlantic on: July 15, 2012, 11:36:41 pm
Is it my imagination or does MSC have more than its share of serious incidents at sea, etc.?

You are right Jens; today the ship is reported as the Ville D'Aquarius;  so much for the media striving for accuracy.

So far the latest report is 150 containers have been checked with no stowaways. 

Once you get out of jail I will be glad to pick you up!

Jens - the two news reports I read had the ship as a Cyprus flagged Villa D' Aquarius.  That does not mean it couldn't be Ville D'Aquarius.

The latest report I read stated that the ship began its voyage in the United Arab Emirates, made two stops in India, one of which was Mundra on June 7 where the suspect container was loaded, then made a stop in Pakistan, then Egypt before proceeding to Newark.  The container was destined for Norfolk, Virginia, the ship's next stop.

That is a long time to be in a container.

Just for that I will make them wait a day or two before the open the container and you can start your US vacation. Grin

The cargo ship Villa D'Aquarius has been seized in Newark, NJ by U.S. officials after a preliminary inspection of the ship revealed what was thought to be voices in one of the containers.  This is being reported by www.yahoo.com Wed. July 26.  Given the circumstances officials believed the ship may be involved in smuggling aliens into the U.S.  The suspect container was not readily accessible and the ship was immediately docked in Newark, NJ to remove the overlying containers.

Thanks for posting the info.

YM Masculinity seems a rather strange name.  Is someone in Yang Ming having gender issues?  Grin

At noon, EDST, April 24, the SOO locks in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan will open for business, joining the St. Lawrence Seaway and Welland Canal which opened a few days ago.  The 2012 shipping season on the Great Lakes, which have been remarkably ice free this warm winter, is now at hand.  The 1,000 foot Mesabi Miner, carrying taconite is expected to be the first ship through the SOO Locks, which connects Lake Superior with the rest of the Great Lakes.

Thanks Andrew - that makes sense.  Appreciate the answer.
So many containers, so little time!

This is a really dumb question  Huh but if this is a Maersk service then why isn't at least one of the ships Maersk?  I am familiar with shared service but I would think Maersk would have at least one of their ships involved, especially with so many calling at Norfolk, Va.?
Thanks for your understanding on this on.

Is/was Upper Lakes shipbuilding part of or related to Upper Lakes shipping which was merged into Algoma Central this year?

45  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Great Lakes bulker Maritime Trader sold and renamed on: July 30, 2011, 03:47:51 pm
For those who follow the Great Lakes, the 1967-built Maritime Trader, IMO 6702301, has been sold to Lower Lakes Towing at bankruptcy auction and renamed Manitoba.  The venerable vessel is currently (July 30) at Hamilton, Ontario receiving repairs and repainting into the Lower Lakes paint scheme.

The Manitoba was built as the Mantadoc in 1967 and carried this name until 2002 when it was renamed the Teakglen.  As the Teakglen it spent its last years as a grain storage vessel in Goderich, Ontario. Refurbished and painted with a bright blue hull in 2005, the Maritime Trader was one of the older and more distinctive ships on the Great Lakes.

The Lower Lakes fleet is a veritable floating museum worthy of any ship lover's attention.  Fortunately their fleet is well documented on this site.
