I know copyright can be a contentious issue at times but I thought I'd share this little story.

Where I work at Napier Port, we posted a photo of a ship loading the first cargo of logs ever to leave Napier, taken in the mid 1950's. The photographer was a former employee who passed away quite some time ago and this photo was posted without permission but with acknowledgement to him

Both his daughter and son responded by saying how delighted they were to see their Father's work being used in such a away, and of course, both appreciated the fact they he was acknowledged in the post.

Strictly speaking, we probably should not have done this, but that was a case where family members perhaps recognised that it made their Father's work something that has now a permanent historical record, rather than something kept hidden away in a box somewhere which probably would ultimately be destroyed.

It does concern me how much great material will probably never be seen because of concerns over copyright laws

The last attempt was a successful one!

The big tug started the pull at high tide by around 1:00am on Friday night, 16/3, and by 2:30am the 'Betanzos' was floating again (at last!).

The salvaged vessel was then towed in the morning hours by several harbour tugs of the Rebonave fleet to the same Beato Multipurpose Terminal (TMB) that she had left in the night of the 6th only to find herself grounded at the big sand bank by the Tagus river South entrance an hour later, to the E of the Bugio lighthouse.

At Beato, she moored safely, and is being unloaded there before she enters dry dock for a thorough inspection.

She shows a 15-18 degree inclination to the port side, which was the one most exposed to the high waves during the 10 days she was stuck in the sand. The reason for that inclination is undetermined. It could be due to a cargo shift, or to structural damage due to the waves, or to the abnormal pulling efforts she endured during the period she was grounded. Some damage appears to exist also on the superstructure, on the same side. Damage may also include the small tender boat pictured on the 4th, by then still positioned correctly at level, and that now is hanging vertically and pointing to the water. The outboard engine of the tender boat appears to be missing.

All things considered, a success story, and a happy end!

Congratulations to the Fairmount experts, including the crew of the Fairmount Alpine high seas tug (IMO 9344784), that made this salvage possible!

Not intentionally, Bob, and some members do get reminded (and remember for a while!).

At least one member was approved some years ago to continue in general without specific ID, due to the declared circumstances in which the photographs were obtained.

If you have specific images which are causing you concern, please PM me or send details to

Site Standards clearly say:
“If you own or hold prints, slides or negatives that have been purchased or acquired by other means but you are not certain of the copyright owner you must NOT upload to the website, photographs not taken or owned by the member must clearly state in the description the name of the person that owns the copyright and that the member has approval to upload them to this website. “
Judging by the number of old, unaccredited photos that are appearing these days, I am wondering if it has become admin policy to ignore that rule?
