Indeed, they don't miss much - and often a video as well.
Perhaps already renamed?

Not in the registers.  Thought it might be too new, but just noticed taken 2014.
Possible under 100gt?
4  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Netherlands tug detained in Spain on: April 21, 2018, 08:37:59 am
The Spanish port state control inspectors are renowned for "always finding something", and it was careless of the Dutch tug EDDY I (IMO 9714575) both to run low on fuel coming back from Venezuela - and then to enter Vigo without flying the Spanish courtesy ensign.  

However it is rather embarrasing that a three-year-old EU-flagged vessel should have been detained for nearly a month.  She had only just reverted to NLD flag in March, so the subsequent change to Panama while she is detained looks more like a move to keep the NLD record as low as possible.

There is no shortage of numbers and, as Phil says, they will definitely not be recycled.

There are over 10,000 "9" numbers left
A large number of "8" numbers have not been issued yet (they are used for allocations for ships which are not newbuildings)
I suspect that there are a good number of never issued "5,6,7" numbers
I think that only a few "3" or "4" numbers have been utilised
As far as I know "1" numbers are at present mainly used for yachts; also some of these and some "2" numbers have been used for small vessels outside the IMO system and only appear if that vessel subsequently applies for an IMO number (eg http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo_search.php?imo=2838358)
Some "invisible numbers" have been used for database purposes as temporary internal IDs
And of course, though there may be technical reasons not to use them, no "0"(zero) numbers have been used, that's another 99,999 more.

Yes, Bob, for Japanese ships the forward-facing board normlly has two numbers, the second in smaller size and six digits.  This is the Japanese Official Number, and is available via searchable databases that carry that field.  At present I can access SeaWeb which does that, so having a go at some of your mysteries.

New York's "Vanity Fair" is not where one normally looks for a well-written shipping story, but this re-telling by William Langewiesche of the tragic events of October 2015 as recorded on EL FARO's bridge VDR is a most worthy exception.

Thank you all for maintaining pretty good "decorum" in this thread.  The matter is firmly in hand now and I hope to be able to confirm shortly that the issue has been resolved.  It would be better, I believe, if criticism - direct or implied - is not permitted to be personalised here in public forum.

I confirm that we will be applying the existing policy on copyright more comprehensively, with due regard to different circumstances, to all members.  If any of you are concerned that we may have missed something, the most helpful approach would be to email webmaster@shipspotting.com or send me a PM.

You got it, Bob.
I've made it "sticky" so it will stay at the top of the pile.
Contributions welcome from all parts of the world.

Back now - thanks Clyde.  Just to note for the moment that Jürgen and I have been in touch about this recently, and the issue is understood but has a complicated history.  Other colleagues have been in touch with me off-forum, and that it where we shall take it forward.

Google have now developed a much simpler system, called "reCAPTCHA V2", which many sites have changed to, and which operates differently and is very user-friendly - most of the time.  My experience with sites that use it is that every now and again its algorithms produce an uncertain result, and it defaults to a visual CAPTCHA (usually the one requiring clicks on a grid of photos where there are road signs, cars or shop fronts (that's the one referred to by Pilot Frans - which does indeed require one to understand the question, though they often repeat the same questions with different photos)

Whether there are technical down-sides, I do not know -
but all this has been referred to IT, as I mentioned the other day, and we will get it sorted asap.

Hello John
Can you let me know some examples please and I'll see whether we can track down the problem.

Has anyone else had the same experience?
