AIS again totally out to lunch:

Look where Span Asia 5 is right now:
on the east coast of Vancouver Island, Canada;
destination: Zamboanga......

How can this vessel ever end up (according to AIS)
here on the west coast of Canada?

You'll find AIS is right and she is on the west coast of Canada. Her data that has been input will be wrong. She probably did a trip from the Philippines to Canada with cargo and has/is backloading cargo to take back Zamboanga.

Indeed out to lunch.
It's not unusual - probably a ship in BC has entered wrong IMO or MMSI; or the real ship has been playing with its co-ordinates.  Interestingly this is coming from "Station 555" - a mobile station - and the "nearest ship" is "UAIS TEST HO" from the same location in the Campbell River-  so maybe that's it. For some reason Marine Traffic do not seem to have the ship's real c/s DUA3156 or MMSI 548563200 in their database.

Meanwhile the real SPAN ASIA 5 is trading away happily in Philippines around Zamboanga and General Santos.

Probably a different East Wind.  The coaster East Wind regularly plys the West coast between Seattle and the Alaskan Panhandle.
