You can indeed stand on the rear deck, and it is about the only way to properly shoot the tankers at the MOT.

Galati it is as the link in Dirk's post specifically mentions.

"See my piece in page one of this Topic http://forum.shipspotting.com/index.php/topic,15231.0.html, as you will see I did request it be developed to replace the comments sadly nothing came of it, it is member only and can only be used once.
Regards
Ken"

Ken, comments like "Great Shot" of "Big like" can be replaced by a simple like button, but explaining WHY somebody likes a photo requires words. (which may even help other people to improve their own shots).

the best viewed pictures are those with the most comments. As soon a shot generates one comment the ball starts rolling. That's why it is not allowed to comment on your own picture.

I approach the "like" system here in a similar fashion as Facebook, a like without a comment is of little value to me, when I like a photo I say why, and when I say why I do not need to "like" it on top.

Well, by putting weight/cargo in a floating hull you increase its displacement.
7  Shipspotters all over the world / Scale Models / Re: Ship info on: May 16, 2017, 05:34:45 pm
Displacement is a function of deadweight. The higher the deadweight, the higher is the displacemnt. However it does not offer a good insight in the size of the ship in terms of dimensions. A standard VLCC carries 320000 DWT these days so loaded displacement would be about  360000 tonnes. Typical dimensions are 330 meters overall, 60 metres wide and 30.50 depth.
A Triple E Maersk ship has a DWI of about 195000, same beam,same depth but roughtly 70 meters longer. Lightship would be probably around 40-45000, but I have no data on that.

So really displacement is not going to give you a proper size indication. And for more extrme figures, just look at cruise ships, which have hardly any deadweight to speak of.

OK, David, but they fulfill the same role as the yacht tenders, so these could be put there as well. But as Clyde mentioned, taking people from shore to an offshore contraption, whether floating or fixed is their main design purpose, so that is where they should be.  Like my hobbyhorse, an LR2 carrying crude oil is not a crude oil tanker but a product tanker.

I think I remember having seen some large cruise ships that carry their own passenger tenders on board, when visiting ports for which they are to big to enter, such as Monte Carlo. What category are these in?

The J. Smit yard in Alblasserdam was the first yard in the Veolme empire,which later culiminated in the RSV Gropu ans was subsequently dismantled. Newbuilding has ceased there ages ago and I doubt that anybody who was involved in that yard is still alive. There could be archives somewhere, but it would be difficult.

De Merwede Schipyard is still part of the IHC group, but their activities have been reduced significantly since 2015.  This is IHC's website

11  Shipspotters all over the world / Trip reports / Shipspotting at Rozenburg on: May 04, 2017, 12:42:57 pm
Since 01/05/2017 the Restaurant "De Veerheuvel" at the ferry terminal in Rozenburg has got new management. The previous manager lived in the small cottage at the back of the restaurant and the good news is that the new manager is planning to offer this as a B&B facility. I can hardly imagine a better starting place for shipspotting operations if you are not an inhabitant of our little village.

The Database is not something that the Admins can maintain. Up till early 2015 the data were supplied by the site Gross Tonnage, and the site software just incorporated their data. As GT data also included ships on order (by the IMO number), ships that were completed after the demise of GT (such as the ship you are referring to) still show some input on the data sheet on Ship Spotting, but soon, with orders placed for ships after the end of GT, the data sheet will be totally empty.

Efforts to link to another external data source have so far not been successful.

Paul (?). If you are having trouble identfying an older tanker, just sent me a message and I'll do it for you. And for that matter the older tankers are causing far less problems than the newer ones where the mix of product and crude tankers is much more diffuse.
When other people come up with extra info, it will still be the adimin who will have to physically add the info to the photo. 
15  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: lack of maritime authority control? on: April 19, 2017, 09:28:25 am
Perhaps a Port Authority could issue a permit for such ship to leave the port only when under tow. On the other hand, that would probably prevent the shipowner from doing anything and the burden of the removal of the ship will fall on the Port Authority.

Edit: I may have erroneously assumed that the ship was heading for a Turkish scrapyard.
