Perhaps that's not a fore-hold.  It's the pop-up accommodation and wheelhouse for the early years.

@Capt Ted - you will need a new signature text!

CRYSTAL ORCA I reported at Amsterdam in March 2017, but not confirmed. 
Any idea what tug brought it to Chittagong?

@Patrick. Helped, I suspect, by developments in anti-shake technology.

Thank you, Jesper, for bringing us this news, sad though it is.
If you are in contact with the family, please extend the condolences of his ShipSpotting friends.

I note that he was a member for many years (listed as Member No.40) and was apparently on-site as recently as just last month. 
Provided no objection is raised, his eight images on-site will remain, to honour his memory and contribution to ShipSpotting.

A sobering reflection on the loss of STELLAR DAISY in Parts 2 and 3 of Andrew Craig-Bennett's article, and the published comments, in Unsafe at any draft (Pt 1 concerned primarily COSTA CONCORDIA):

Relieved to find that they are not lost, Willem!  All captioned "KNRM Johanna Louisa".


For information, if a "former" lifeboat, what is she now (still seems to be in KNRM colours)?
10  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: CLUB HARMONY has been demolished? on: July 08, 2017, 09:28:43 am
CLUB HARMONY was active under MHI flag from 1/2012 until about 1/2013 in Korea-Japan cruises

During subsequent laid up at Kwangyang she is listed as sold 5/2014 to Polar Energy & Marine Co Ltd (Polaris Shipping Co Ltd), Seoul and put under S Korea flag (presumably that was the purchase option that they had from Costa).  She was laid up at Kwangyang most, if not all of the time (I think that a report of a call at Tianjin, China on 27/6 was an "AIS phantom") until she left for Singapore in 8/2014 and was sold for demolition at Alang - final voyage as HARMONY I under St Kitts-Nevis flag.

Confirm both GULBENIZ A and SANTA VANESSA (ex-MSC TOKYO, only renamed in May) were in the Barcelona Fondeadero Este Anchorage on 28/6.

GULBENIZ A has been off that W Africa service since last summer, and now running circuits from Turkey (Ambarli, Yarimca, Borusan, Nemrut Bay) to Cagliari > Valencia > Castellon > Barcelona > Caronte, France > Thessaloniki.

It was reported back in Feb 2016 that a "preliminary inquiry" had whown that the cause was not cargo shifting, but the authority was not identified.

The initial list and abandonment took place, as I understand it, in international waters (though she later drifted into French waters, hence being taken charge of by the French authorities. With no loss of life or reported pollution, and no othr vessel involved, I suspect that the responsibility for any enquiry would rest with the flag state, Panama.

Well, Capt T, the salvage operators used to add in the horsepower of every little auxiliary generator and pump, to try to give the highest possible overall horsepower for the tug.  For a while they even persuaded Lloyd's Register not to include main engine horsepower for tugs, when it was being shown for every other kind of vessel, so that they were less easily rumbled.

She made it.
Showing berthed at Marchwood Quay by Southampton VTS.
Corvid Marine Services is owned by Capt Bob Cheek, so they must be the operators.  They apparently also operate GOOLE STAR, moving aggregates in the Southampton/Portsmouth/Newport IOW area.
