1  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: ENI and IMO numbers on European inland vessels on: April 17, 2019, 07:08:32 pm
Hello to all of you,

I fully agree with the above statement from Jens and hope that every photographer will include the ENI and/or IMO of an inland vessel if such figures are externally visible or known. Inland shipping is perhaps somewhat underrated by some members, but if you have seen the interaction of see-going and inland vessels in big harbours like Antwerpen or Rotterdam it's obvious that these are the two sides of one coin. It is a truly fascinating and perfect interaction between very different kind of vessels acting together like larger and smaller cogwheels of a clockwork and being absolutely dependant on each other. And the variety and often very interesting and long history of many inland vessels are really impressive. The more you know about the branche of inland shipping the more interesting it gets, in any case that's what I have experienced during the last years.

Best wishes to all of you and happy shipspotting !

Cheers, Hans

Hello mattyboy and all of you,

my opinion is that you should not give up a hobby for a woman.

There are many interesting and different things for both of you to discover during shipspotting. Explain to her some details of the ships you are watching and she will eventually build up a knowledge about ships and shipping. There are so many benefits for both of you to enjoy while watching the ships passing by : Nature, a great scenery, fascinating animals can be seen (my wife and I are keen birdwatchers, so this is really a good additional motivation), wonderful fresh air, sunshine and many other things. You can enjoy taking your meals at very special places having a great panorama at the same time.

Perhaps the woman you have met, mattyboy, will be inspired and "infected" by all these great experiences ? It should work if you are skillful and patient. And what about making a nice ship journey with her or some harbour trips ? And perhaps she is or gets interested in photography and takes photos by herself ? There are a lot of other subjects that can be seen during a shipspotting tour or on the way to and from these locations.

Last but not least it is very important, in my opinion, that you should try to visit a great variety of shipspotting locations if possible, so this should never become boring to her.

Perhaps try it this way, good luck and best wishes to all of you from Hans

Very shortly after accessing the attached message showed up on the front page.

This message tells me to install a flash player update and it pretends that I use a certain obsolete version - actually flash player is not installed at all. When right-clicking on the message it still asks to start a download from some dubious site (as shown on attachment).

I use Firefox 60.0.2 with uBlock Origin 1.16.10 and NoScript Version

I hope this information will be helpful in further analyzing the problem.

Best regards Hans

Hello Russell,
there are at least three websites where you can search by ENI number.On the site you have to click on item "Databank : De Binnenvaartschepen" and then enter the wanted number/or the ship's name, whatever your choice is.On the site you should click on "zoeken", which means "search" in Dutch and fill in the wanted ENI. On both websites you can search with or without the beginning digit Zero. On the German site you have first to register and subsequently fill in the ENI in field "Erweiterte Suche", the site is in German language only.

Searching with google entering "ENI" plus 8 digits beginning with "0" will lead you to various websites, including the three sites given above.

Best regards Hans

Hi all, I would like to add some additional websites for those interested. This French site offers a lot of information about French and Belgian vessels, so have a look here , another excellent database for more than 18.000 inland vessels is the Dutch site where in most cases you will find many details of a certain vessel. I agree with Ken concerning the ENI numbers, please add this number when posting an inland vessel so that the changes and history of a particular vessel are reflected. Since April 2007 this individual number doesn't change anymore when a vessel is sold to another country, which is certainly a big improvement.

Best regards Hans

Hello Ken,

it's sad to see you leaving the webmaster position in this way. However I think that you will leave with so much more positive memories over all those years - and that's what really counts.

So, thank's for all your work and efforts for this site, it was much appreciated by most of the members.

Stay healthy and keep on posting your pics and adding comments !

Best wishes from seaweasel
