Very sad to hear of Ken's passing. I had the privilege to meet Ken for a short time and he taught me much about shipping photography.  RIP Ken

"Hi Marc,
Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in sending you these photographs of your baby, my excuse for what it is worth is pressure of work and not just on the website.
I hope you like them,
Kind regards
Ken Smith"

Dear Ken
Many thanks for all your efforts to our site, your individual support and all the "privat contributions".

RIP

Marc

I am still shocked for the sad news about the death of Ken, with whom I had many exchanges of mails about the photos and exchange of opinions about the regulation on the photos always reaching an excellent understanding, I think we will miss him a lot, therefore we must continue with his work in shipspotting.com

Regards

Tomi.

I wish to extend my heart felt condolences to Ken Smith's family and friends. I was very saddened to hear of his passing. Cry

I did not know him except through his work on this site (many happy hours of reading his posts and looking at his photos's for the last several years). His contributions to making this site what it is are unmeasurable as was his love of ship spotting I think. He has left a lasting legacy to all of us who enjoy this site. May he always be remembered and his example followed.

Such sad news, like Derek Sands said I too have had my disagreements with Ken, some resolved some we never resolved.

Ken put a huge effort into this site and at times its a wonder this site survived and has become what it is today with out all the work did with Tomas and later Andre behind the scenes.

My thoughts are with Ken's family as he will truly be missed.

RIP Ken
