Hi Anthony, as far as I know it should indeed be indeed Chinese flag above HK flag for HK flagged ships.
Not sure though if all HK registered ships are doing that.

Hi Frank,

I had the same issue when I bought a new macbook pro last year (I also made a post about it).
On my previous macbook (non-retina) I didn't had that issue.
Also on my phone pictures, non full screen, look still ok.
I guess it has something to do with the retina display on MacBooks.


Thanks for the link Yvon.
Nice read.

Saw her at Manzanillo two days ago:

She looked rather shabby.


So far I have refrained from commenting on any of the many topics posted and comments on specific pictures as well.
But hey, why don't we just post pictures that we took with our own camera's.
Isn't that what this site is supposed to be all about.....?
Simon I do think the questions raised by other members are somehow valid, no matter how interesting some old pictures can be.
This site is not a reference / archive site where pictures can be found of every ship ever sailed. Though some people are using this site for that purpose as a matter of fact.
I do, however, think if you inherited some pictures, let's say from your farther or family member, that you should be allowed to post it, else post your own pictures.

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.

Thank you Yvon.

Damco came in the hands of Nedlloyd in 1977, subsequently it was owned by P&O Nedlloyd after the fusion with P&O end 1996.
In 2005 Maersk bought P&O Nedlloyd and Damco came into the hands of the Maersk group.

Hi Mattyboy,

Just checked your pictures and you use a Fujifilm HS10 (nice pictures!).
This mean the RX10 and FZ1000 should give you a bump in image quality.

I forgot to mention the Canon G3 X, same league as the above though without a viewfinder (you can buy an external one extra).

I personally use the RX10 mark III and am very happy with it.

Hi Mattyboy,

If you want a bridge camera and best quality available you have the following options:
-Sony RX10 mark III or IV. The mark IV is quite expensive and more for sports / fast moving objects.
-Panasonic FZ1000 mark I or II as already mentioned by other members.
-Panasonic FZ2000, little more expensive then FZ1000 and more orientated to video.
The above options all have same size sensor and consequently more or less same image quality.
Other options are Panasonic TZ 100 and TZ 200 and Sony RX100 mark VI and mark VII, those are smaller and have generally less quality lenses compared to the ones mentioned above, though still the same, relatively large, sensor.

Do not know what your current camera is but smaller size sensors will give you less image quality, especially in low light.
If you go for the small sensor camera's I would recommend the Panasonic FZ300 as the only real option. An advantage for the FZ300 is that you currently can buy one for less than 400 euro's. It will still give you nice pictures.

I think all of the above will also have digital zooming on top of their optical zoom. I however never use the digital zoom and rather crop the picture on my laptop.


Hi Bruno,

Evergreen has quite some ships on order, among them:
6x 24000 teu ships from Samsung, South Korea and 4x 24000 teu from Chinese yards.
They are in the progress of receiving 8x 11000 teu ships from Samsung, South Korea. Names so far Ever Faith, Focus, Forward and Front.
They will also receive further 11 similar vessels from Imabari, Japan. First one to be named Ever Far.
Then they are also in the progress of receiving 28 Ever-C class vessels, around 1800 teu.
On top of that they will receive 14 2500 teu ships.

Regarding CMA CGM please note my reply on your separate post.

Ocean Fleets, formally known as Ocean Ships is always a great source.
Though you can also easily search the web for current fleet-lists. Equasis is a great site with multiple search options.


Again today, after uploading quite some pictures I had the same issue.
After quitting Safari (web-browser) and deleting all cookies and cashes and history from Safari I was able to upload again.
So still not sure what causes the issue, but at least there is a cure at hand.
Anybody else using Safari having this issue after uploading many pictures?
