2  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / Shipping locations at Marsden Point, Whangarei, New Zealand on: October 10, 2018, 06:36:02 am
Photo locations for Marsden Point are best done from Whangarei Heads which is opposite Marsden Point.

For tanker berths and ships arriving/departing through the heads take Whangarei Heads Road out of Whangarei then turn off at Bay View Road.

The wharves are best seen by turning off Whangarei Heads Road into Reotahi Road then onto Beach Road, this looks directly across the water to the wharves.

Marsden Point is the main port for crude oil imports to the NZ Refinery Co. and also exports of refined products. The main exports are logs, wood chips and triboard and further up is the cement works of Portland Cement.

This vessel/barge was seen at anchor on leaving Callao, Peru. Bit far away to get a name, can anybody identify please. Did look on MarineTraffic at next port but nothing showed up on AIS.

5  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / Hong Kong photo location - East Lamma Channel on: June 03, 2018, 04:15:32 am
Just back from Hong Kong and stayed at the T Hotel (great hotel, its basically a teaching hotel so service is excellent with plenty of students and supervisors in attendance, highly rated by TripAdvisor) which overlooks the East Lamma Channel. Plenty of ships use the channel with the pilot station in a bay just above the photo of the AS CLEMENTINA, you have to photogragh between the tower blocks but this is not a problem. Once past the tower blocks you can photograph the main route into Hong Kong and the anchorage. Although I did all mine from the hotel balcony using a 300mm zoom however a smaller zoom is possible. If you want waterline shots the catch a bus down to Cyberport Road in Telegraph Bay from where you can photograph the whole channel, small zoom here as ships are quite close. There is shade under the trees which you will need as it was 34 deg. when we were there. Sun is a problem after midday. Examples of photos below.

Peter,
I normally use the link from Equasis/Classification Society/Survey, some of the societies give quite a lot of details and one is often the purpose of the vessel. Looked up FNSA 11 (IMO# 9424534) and the DNV-GL classifies this as a crude oil tanker.

http://vesselregister.dnvgl.com/vesselregister/vesseldetails.html?vesselid=G107582

Most of the others including Korean and Chinese societies do the same thing.

Regards,
Dave Gallie

FJORDVIK (ex WESTPORT) left Port Taranaki this afternoon for Norway via Papeete and Panama, no doubt stopping there for bunkers. Now registered in Bahamas, Nassau. 3 photos in the photo section.

That's no good for us down at Port Taranaki, the port says 00:00 Wednesday which means no photo if she comes straight in. Maybe get one when she leaves.

Hi JR,

We had a conversation not long ago about the CALM which grounded off Cape Egmont, we display a photo of the CALM ashore before re-floating. Compensaton being paid due to lighthose failure. Thought it maybe of some interest to you.

Does anybody know which Captain Corelli ship was associated with Pacific Basin, it could be either 9044425 (Built 1991) or 9237395 (Built 2001). Any help would be much appreciated.
