Many Japanese domestic vessels have their names only in Japanese characters but also have numbers showing, usually on bridge and superstructure boards. Does anyone know of any source for identifying such vessels through these numbers?

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.

Not in the registers.  Thought it might be too new, but just noticed taken 2014.
Possible under 100gt?

Thanks, David.

It looks to be under 100 gt, but it puzzles me that it had escaped the scrutiny of other ship spotters in Japan - and usually it looks like no ship is safe from their cameras... Smiley

Cheers

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