On AIS it was a SAR helicopter, which seems to have stayed about 30 mins.  Looks like a medivac as it was deployed from Lee-on-Solent, and then flew immediately to University Hospital, Southampton.

Demolished in 2013.  The Dutch-language Wikipedia has an article:
https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internationaal_Zeemanshuis_(Antwerpen).

On the demolition is says something like:

Quote
In 2004, the city of Antwerp launched a major re-evaluation project for the Schipperskwartier. In the district, they had struggled for years to reduce prostitution and criminal commercial practices. The Falconplein-Zeemanshuis zone was a crucial leverage project. Although the city council wanted to maintain the existing Internationaal Zeemanshuis in the design, the concept of the German-Dutch design agency Rapp + Rapp was selected, which firmly opted for the demolition of the Internationaal Zeemanshuis. Despite numerous efforts by national and international heritage organisations, action groups and neighbourhood committees, the building was demolished in 2013.

There is a new one now, supported by the ITF:

I suppose that the right way to describe it is that, for the Type 26:
  • procurement of eight has been announced
  • orders for the first three have been placed

Thee are in some flag administrations, though less so for fishing vessels, it seems.

There are currently 32 ANNA MARIEs on the full US register, of which eight are commercial fishing vessels - and no doubt more on the local state registers.

Suspect that may the name of the operator/owner

Yes Husni, of course your teachers got it just right.
And that applies to numbers too, but eastern Arabic is much more logical than the western way as you start with the unit, then the tens, then the hundreds etc.
so in this example in right-to-left-reading Arabic it is "two + eighty + eight hundred"

Thanks Husni.  You are a star!

Only to note that digits do not reverse.  The number in this one is eight hundred and eighty two

Can any members assist with names of vessels in Arabic?  It would be a pity to lose some interesting images because we cannot make out the name.

For example, a set of photos of Egyptian ferries on the Suez Canal show no usable ID in western alphabets.  It may be that the Arabic inscriptions are the operator rather than the name, but it would be helpful to know!

So, who can help?  Or know someone else who can?

Of the newbuilding projects listed, I think that only the TOTE ones are in service using lng.
The MOL ships are prepared for possible retrofit in the future; CMA-CGM have got no further than a letter-of-intent; the Containerships quartet will be delivered next year.

Also existing ships like WES AMELIE have been converted:

Which existing ships like WES AMELIE have been converted?  The report says that WES AMELIE is the first and she has only just returned to service (last I heard she is chartered to....er.... Maersk).
