Thank you kindly.

Possett, can you get out along the finger pier at the marina, please? It that where you mean?

Off for a trip to Bristol soon - could local experts advise on the best viewpoints for Royal Portbury and Avonmouth dock entrances, please?

I've been up on Battery Point at Portishead previously, but wondered if there were places close to the dock entrances to get a better view.

Thanks in advance!

If I'm reading posts right, its unusual to see that inaccurate information is being reported here, specifically regarding crane outreaches.

For instance, Felixstowe has had 22 row wide outreach cranes for many years on berths 6 and 7, while all of the berth 8 and 9 cranes are 24 rows wide.

London Gateway opened back in 2013 with 25 row wide outreach cranes installed from day one, and is to a large degree impervious to increases in beam - length is not a factor there, as it presently has 3 contiguous 400m berths, so that quay could handle 2 420m vessels and 1 366 with ease. All of the world's ports at which the current fleet of 400m by 60m vessels could handle wider vessels with existing or on-order cranes, and a 20 metre increase in length wouldn't make life impossible for them.

Neither Gateway nor Felixstowe would have major issues with 20m longer ships, and probably Southampton would manage, despite saying its maximum berth size is 400m. At this time, 420m ships would fit into most ports' mix of vessels, although the replacement/renewal of the existing 400m fleet with 420m long ships would cause a log-jam.

11  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Last weekend's Maritime Ipswich event a success. on: August 27, 2017, 06:43:37 am
The ABP Port of Ipswich staged its regular "Maritime Ipswich" event last weekend, and latest reports say that Ipswich Borough Council is considering making the event annual. They originally announced in 2016 that the festival would be held every two years, with a smaller Waterfront Festival taking place in between.

The 2017 event attracted over 60,000 visitors, but many said there were too many food stalls, and not sufficient maritime attractions. Vessels attending were 2 historic tugs, Kent & Touchstone, steamer VIC 96, and 4 sailing barges, all of which were open to the public.

You can get a look at the vessels alongside and under way via this Shipping TV Youtube playlist - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLGpLOh2lZwxse71DS4LTx54ZplWAvIy0g
