Another masterpiece, Fred. I am amazed at how many people turn out to see an interesting ship arriving at Rotterdam. In this country, which allegedly once ruled the waves, people who go to such trouble to see one ship (like travelling the distance to get to Maasvlakte) are considered to be Nerds, Dorks and Anoraks! Generally complete apathy reigns.

Hi Bob,

This was the first day with bright weather after a week full of rain, storm and other adverse weather conditions. Apart from the real shipspotters, the crowd also turned up in large numbers just to have a look, trumped up by the coverage on the local news.
Also here there are a lot of people who know nothing about our maritime past or plainly lack common sense. Like the official news reader who today stated that the  "Rena" had already spilled 50.000 tons of oil on the New Zealand coast.
But it was a nice gathering at the Maasvlakte today !

Ciao,
Rob.

Thank you, Fred, for this video, which probably is among the best of
your long list of excellent videos from this shipspotter's paradise
you have got around you.
Also nice to see the old lady, Nedlloyd Hongkong/Maersk Miami in action,
still with the PONL orange belt on top of the superstructure. However, on
some of the photos on the site (like Hannes vR/April 07/2011) her hull
steel plating looks rather "tired" :-)

Regards Niels

Fred Vloo -

After a long wait with heavy seas and strong winds the bulk behemoth finally reached Maasvlakte.
Thumbs up for your video Fred and thanks for sharing.

I'm far away from the sea to Hamburg I have a longer distance as to Venice or Genova.
My favorite is the Suezchannel, Panamacannal  and since 2006 also Chinese harbours. I've a lot of pictures and I don't show them because here at shipspotting.com is a copyright problem

Fred
thank you for the video or should i say video's---please i have a question for me to photograph at the location you have used would need some planning---would you identify this location--place names--latitude / longitude---from the numbers of people in your video there appears to be no problem in gaining access to this position--does one need some sort of security clearence prior to a visit--all help appreciated

In Google maps search for: Slag Maasmond, 3199 Maasvlakte, Maasvlakte Rotterdam. The whole area over a lenght of about 3,5 kilometer is free accesible, no security clearance needed. Only thing don't climb the rocks on the dike, you will get fined.

Excellent work, Fred, full screen it's a treat, especially the way you captured CMA CGM Centaurus!
