Thank you for your kind help, gentlemen!
43  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!
