1  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: Incorrect designation of HMCS Orca class vessels on: July 23, 2019, 11:41:25 am
Final decision on proper designation of HMCS Orca class vessels:

Your forum posts provided clear justification (if not incontrovertible evidence) that the better prefix was "CFAV".  My further research provided several more semi-official references to the class as "CFAV".  Accordingly I have changed the prefixes of the Orca-class PCT to "CFAV", based on your advice.

likewise, my Orca class CFAV designations were changed to the incorrect HMCS one by Shipspotting admin.

Since the Orca class vessels replaced the then 50-year old, wooden-hulled, Yard Auxiliary General (YAG) training vessels, maybe they now should get this YAG-designation as well.

To me, the Orca class vessels are still quite different from other auxiliary vessels like tug boats or even smaller ones that have the CFAV-designation.

Auxiliary vessels like CFAV Abalone are certainly quite different from the Orca class vessels:

Or why not simply refer them to, for example, Orca PCT55?

Technically they are auxiliary vessels crewed by RCN personnel.

The eight steel hulled HMCS Orca-class vessels:
ORCA (PCT55)-RAVEN (PCT56)-CARIBOU (PCT57)-RENARD (PCT58)-WOLF (PCT59)- GRIZZLY(PCT60)- COUGAR(PCT61)- and MOOSE (PCT62) are not commissioned vessels and have not been given HMCS designation.

Can this be corrected?

For a second time I got reprimanded of a wrong classification;

Please define whether a charter vessel is a passenger vessel or a motor yacht,

to me (and AIS Marine Traffic and other sites) the proper classification for
Alaska Quest is passenger vessel and not a motor yacht.

Opinions please.

I am still getting this "error 28 from storage engine" message;
now for several days when I go from "my photos" to "comments to my photos,"
unable to get into the latter.

Any chance of reversing/restoring deletion?

When a duplicate photo has to be deleted, attention should be paid as to which one of the two will have to go. Today my duplicate photo of the derelict general cargo vessel Niky, IMO 790665 was deleted while the earlier posted one was retained.
The deleted photo contained all the vessel's newly added history details and additional info received from a number of members, while the old one photo had none of this valuable info.
All this is now lost, and we all wasted our time to make the info on Niky as complete as possible.
Pity.... all lost with one click by your webmaster.....

there's a big difference between reefers and fish factories/processors.

David,
Thanks that's what I actually meant: just alongside reefers, etc.

fish processor vessels like attached photograph are what they are:
fish factories or fish processors, and not reefers as the closest
current choice.

Any chance to add a separate category for these?

Thanks,

Dirk Septer

A number of my recently posted tug photographs have mysteriously disappeared without any notice, including one that received some real positive comments and some 500 hits. What's going on?

AIS again totally out to lunch:

Look where Span Asia 5 is right now:
on the east coast of Vancouver Island, Canada;
destination: Zamboanga......

How can this vessel ever end up (according to AIS)
here on the west coast of Canada?
