Thank you for your kind help, gentlemen!
4  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Ship handling with a lightly laden vessel? on: August 08, 2018, 07:05:32 am
I've recently filmed a run of very lightly laden ULCS's, and wonder how much difference the draft and light load make to the ship's handling, and to her behavior at sea, in all kinds of weather conditions.

Would any of the seafarers here give me some comments, please?

You'll usually find that HHA berthed page notes when a departure time is "confirmed", which might give your lead time, for the first ship of your day . .

The best place for departures is the port authority, HHA: https://hha.co.uk/live-data/berthed/

They also have a forecast page for incomings, and a departure page when vessels are sailing soon, and an arrivals pages for when they are on their approach.

Port of Felixstowe also have this set of pages: https://www.portoffelixstowe.co.uk/sailing-schedule/shipping-information/

Their predicted arrival times are usually a bit later than the vessel actually arrives, so you are best to use an app like Marinetraffic to keep an eye on them. Larger ships come up the approach channel at 14 or 15 knots at times, so they can arrive very quickly!
Have a good day!

Phil, I've also got a Sony PJ810 which has a very good optical stabiliser - I use it for hand-held and walking stuff - ideal for exhibitions. Although both cams are only HD, not 4K, I still sell some content in odd corners of the satellite broadcast industry.

Thank for the information and interest! Phil, I use a Panasonic HC-V770 video camera, with a 50x zoom - a very useful camcorder, which I use for several kinds of content.

Have to hope that Kyle and Lappino will put up some pics!

Was filming some shipping at Felixstowe viewpoint this morning, and caught the MSC Eyra - and discovered later that she's around 36 years old, first entering service as a Russian-registered vessel in 1982. I'm fairly gobsmacked because I'm surprised at her lifespan. We've certainly seen post-2000 container vessels scrapped, so what is the secret of her survival?

Good question, Derek. The volumes from these 2 service won't be too large, given the vessel sizes, so it might be a good test for their capacities.

14  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Peel's Liverpool2 plans to impress as 2 services switch on: July 19, 2018, 07:32:11 am
Liverpool2, Peel Ports flagship container terminal at Liverpool, is due to welcome 2 transatlantic services - TA2 from the 2M Alliance, Maersk and MSC, and Maesk's own Columbia Express on a 12 week temporary basis.

Although the services are presently slated to return to Felixstowe, Peel are planning to put in an impressive service and cost package - from their point of view, services departing Liverpool for transatlantic destinations are ideal targets, and North-western UK businesses have a big target market in North America.

Latest victim of the Felixstowe fiasco, Ultra Large Container Ship CSCL Atlantic Ocean, arrived at Felixstowe on the 3rd July, and sailed on the 4th– but only as far as the Sunk Anchorage, where she's still awaiting a call back to complete boxes . . .
