There is a tug seaman-photographer in Norway and he answers to the name of: Tomas Ostberg Jacobsen. He always ask photographers to post quality and not quantity.

But then, who listen to his wisdom? Seems like asking some 20 years old car drivers to slow down when they return from a party!

Compare his postings to the fuzzy black and white photos from the Vancouver archives and you will understand why this website is becoming less and less interresting...

Good nite everyone, have fun...

To: Dirk,

As an introduction: I was a licensed marine engineer working on coastal tankers in Canada.
 
The photo you named here, I am certain, caused many followers of this glorious site to start searching the web for more informations on the working of those self loading and self dumping marvels of Canadian naval architecture. This working I already knew. But it sure was a pleasure to search through Shipspotting files to finds all sorts of photos related to the subject...

I love this website very much but one day, The adm. for bulkers, removed my photo of such a vessel sailing with the glory of the Laurentian Fall folliage as a background. So and in reaction, I removed all my limited number of photos from the site...

A step further from showing photos from all over the world, here is what makes Shipspotting.com so valuable: quick answers to questions about ships and shipping from members or from guests. So, many thanks to you, Phil English and PHa.
 
About the Algoma bulkers, may I add that I met the chief engineer who sailed one CSL boat from China to Canada. This guy said that Algoma was trying to arrange the towing of one almost finished vessel to some other yard where it could be completed.

This company was to accept delivery of five more newbuildings from China, in 2014-2015. Seems that none has arrived yet, does anybody knows what happened? One bulker that was first advertised as being underway across the Pacific and bound for the Panama Canal, would have been owned by the CWB and four were self unloaders for Algoma. The shipyard reportedly filed for bankcrupcy. Then what will happen to the unfinished vessels? Thank you.

If it is not blurry then, it is very foggy and one would guess that it was shot with an instamatic camera.

Will you believe me if I tell you that some people have posted photos of very small lobster boats on here?

No, all great lakes freighters have flat bottoms.

Allo Steve,
Henry Larsen came almost in sight of Matane yesterday and freed a few vessels from the ice blockade. Later, she seemed to head back for the Gulf. But right at this hour, I do not see her on Siitecht, so I guess that she is sailing  toward Belle Isle Strait or Corner Brook.

Courtesy or music may be allright, but towing such a wreck all the way to northern Europe is really a nonsense. Consider the number of days of sailing between Italy and Danmark. And the changing state of the seas during those days and you get a nightmare.

Search the Web for: Cornwall Model Boat. They have one kit, think it is Revell, of a modern container vessel of Hapag-Lloyd.
