Hello all,

I know that 2020 has made it feel that the world's coming to an end, but still there should be some future to consider.

At present, all relevant categories are for "Ships built 2010-2020" or so; soon, we'll have to add the next time bracket.

I hope the people in charge are on top of this. Smiley

Cheers

Vlad

For us in the UK, the problem of updating the site to accommodate ships built from 2021 onwards could be the least of our shipspotting problems. We still donít know for sure whether or not, after 1/1/21, we will need a visa to pop over to Rotterdam or Terneuzen for a day or few dayís ship photography.

From Bob Scott: For us in the UK, the problem of updating the site to accommodate ships built from 2021 onwards could be the least of our shipspotting problems.

You won't need a visa, Bob, that's already sorted. However you will need to have full passport checks at the border like any non-EU traveller, which might delay you getting through border control especially at somewhere busy like Schipol. Also if you are driving you will need an International Driving Licence, and maybe more than one version as different EU countries require different versions.

Thank you. Pieter. That's most kind of you (LOL) Cool

Simonwp: I was being ironically sarcastic. Nevertheless we still don't know EXACTLY what the situation will be, except that it will not be as hassle-free as before. Still, that's progress, I suppose

First time I hear that, is that mutual? I did not need an IDL in the USA, Canada and South Africa, so would the UK than be an exception?

Hi Pieter,
This International Driving Liscence is a bit of a strange thing.
I remember, many years ago, my father aplied for one from the ANWB (Dutch car owners organisation). I can't recall for what country exactly. But I heard it's actually more something of a "money maker thing" then that it is a real requirement.
When I rented a car in South Africa my Dutch liscence sufficed.
Cheers,
Roy

Going slightly off topic Roy, I had one myself, while still in High School. It was just to show off, it cost little money, and did not require anything else. I think I still have it somewhere.

I agree with MO Roy, "money maker thing".
I had to get one when I worked in the US back in 2002, in the 6 months + I was there I never used it once, my old moth eaten paper license was all I needed.
