Hi Peter,
for the Antwerp tugs you have to look around a bit like here:
Not all tugs have IMO numbers though.

Good for YOU to have that list of Østensjø, but what can WE do without it?
Maybe here is some more information:
This their fleet list:
You can trace them by searching the name here:

Adding the photo title to the 'Latest Photo Comments' list is very convenient, thank you!   ;D

Hi Matteo,
I've been reading this (probably known to you):
So many fake 'facts', I can't believe it. Why would on that 'original' ATLAS ships bell the year 1956 be when she was built in 1951?
This is her history, also shown in later life as SIAM QUEEN:
Still supposed to be in service in 2012 (Miramar)
Best wishes, Manfred
(I'm off to the fridge now, 39 C degrees here...)

Hi Matteo and Rick,
it wasn't an easy find but here she is:
She suffered a fire in 1976 at Perama, was sold for scrap but after an accommodation rebuilt (that's why looking so weird) she was sold on, broken up at Bombay which started 10 December 1981.
Her last owner was Jupiter Maritime Tpt Inc, Piraeus.
What about MARCUS now???

Best wishes, Manfred

Hi Rick,
I think he is talking about the wreck of CHRISOULA K., ex DORA OLDENDORFF, IMO 5092723.
The diving site has this photo (attached by him) to it which is not correct, now he wants the identity of her. Couldn't find her yet myself.
If you google:'dive ship chrisoula k. marcus' you get a better photo.

@pieter melissen
I just tried it:
when not logged in: right click, download and save only with thumbnails, own or other photos, full screen and additional photo boost not possible
when logged in: right click, download and save only with own photos but from all sizes possible as usual, additional photo boost works.  :o

Help and Advice / Re: What does UP DOWN CLEARED mean ?
« on: July 03, 2022, 02:55:48 PM »
Well, as Port Colborne is at the south end of the Welland Canal it most certainly connected to the next destination of the vessel.
Up means taking the locks up to the Great Lakes (Erie, Huron, Michigan and Superior) where the water level is higher. Down means transitting the Welland Canal and locks down towards Lake Ontario to the St. Lawrence and into the North Atlantic.
The expression 'cleared' seems to be in opposite to the term 'arrived' and would mean 'sailings' in that newspaper clip nevertheless the up or down destination.

Hi Gregory,
have a look around these sites:
Rgds, Manfred  ;D

It works fine, thank you Hugo!  ;D

@ volker1948:
Full screen and zoom work fine!
The fewer pixel in the original uploaded photo (possibly together with a slight unsharpness) the blurrier it gets when enlarged.
Try it on a good image with the maximum pixel allowed (even though really sharp photos with less pixel work as well).
Best wishes, Manfred

the way the images are displayed now suits me best.
The position on the screen of the hopefully correct details provided and a possible available discription by the poster are definitely of secondary interest to me. When enlarging, it is the photo I'm interested in first. And the current size as default can be enjoyed by any dedicated photographer imho.
If scrolling down to read the details or a comment I can hardly say that this spoils my overall impression of a vessel in any way, imbalance? Sorry no, not for me.
I'm satisfied with this new layout, all works for me.
Best wishes, Manfred

Btw, I've noticed that some uploaded photos extended the 4000x4000 rule, anything new on that?

Just checked on fb, lots of well known photos.  >:(

I think the new website is terrible.
Why is that so if it works from your workaccount? Must check YOUR system maybe.
I'm with Pieter Inpijn: EVERYTHING IS WORKING PERFECT, have uploaded very many photos to this new design since the beginning and there weren't any issues at all.
Login/out, Uploading single or multiple, Messages are all there Inbox/Sent items, Categories and Search working fine and I'm sure it's not only lucky me.
Sorry to hear but the problem must be somewhere else, btw I'm on Windows 10 and Firefox.

@Owen Foley:
What seems to be your problem?
The navigation is clunky and the site doesn't look interesting.
The contents of the site is still the same, depending on uploaded images of your likes of course, navigating around might have changed a bit but so what. An extra click to get the ad out of the way? The site design is not interesting enough? OMG, big deal.
Relax and enjoy, have a drink!  ;D
Best wishes to all,
