Maritime Research and History / Older Dutch inland vessels
« Last post by davidships on Today at 01:55:13 AM »
Although I do not undersand much about it, before (and it seems overlapping with) the IVR/ENI numbering, there was another system - I thnk called the "Brand" which was seemingly more port related.  Is there an explanation of this system somewhere (in Dutch is fine so long as I can let Dr Google loose on it)?
Is it possible to "decode" these?  Were there ever registers for them?

For example, with an apparent port of registry of Amsterdam, this former Dutch barge has "795 BLIED 1929"
I suppose that 1929 is when she was built or registered, but I do not understand the rest:

Thanks for the noting that - I will tell the author that the format is erroneous.  Actually I think that it should be written 52°28'36"N 1°46'32"E, or in the decimal version 52.476667N 1.775556E.

Forgive me if I've missed a notification, I've just spotted that ShipSpotting now allow Ships Monthly to publish photos off here unless you opt out. As I used to get paid for photos in SM and I can't see how (without buying SM) we would know our photos are being used and expect the payment, therefore I have declined this option.

Is there a specific page on this website site that allows you to opt out?

Sorry friend you put this:

16.8.1976: Capsized and sunk outside Lowestoft harbor, in position 52.28.36 N., 01.46.32 E, following a collision with her tow - JUPITER (1,594g. /64).

If one searches in Google this location: 52.28.36 N., 01.46.32 E

Google says Apparently, there are no good matches for your search.

But if we put location: 52°28.36 N 01°46.32 E

There if we go to a place, that's why my friend I love to put locations so the one who enters goes straight to the place,

Don't be fooled

Sorry friend but I love to put the location.

And add Google Earth images so you can see the history of the ship from being a beautiful ship to being abandoned.

Location: 52°20'11.3 "N 5°04'10.4 "E

Google Maps:

In Google Maps you can't see the ship, because it was scrapped in 2022.

But if you use Google Earth you will see this:



9/2013 abandoned

4/2019 destroyed

9/2021 already scrapped on site

Now the ship has a story to tell

Exactly, a shipwreck in a port can be seen and it seems strange to me too, since the ship was abandoned for several years and was even destroyed in situ and nobody published anything.

But investigating everything is found.

It is a pity that such a beautiful ship was abandoned like this.

I really felt sorry for her, beautiful boat

I was surprised that no photos of this ship, whether as a wreck or earlier, had been posted on the site.

Member Mafioso has done some digging.  In summary
1944 built by Herd & Mackenzie, Buckie, Scotland as an MMS1-Class minesweeper and handed over to the Royal Netherlands Navy as Hr.Ms. MARKEN.
1957 Zeekadetkorps Nederland, Utrecht
1977 Stichting het Varend Museumschip, Muiden and converted to the 3-masted barquentine ELISABETH SMIT, for tourist voyages on the IJsselmeer, based at Muiden
10/2002 suffered severe damage at her berth in Muiden in a storm; wreck remained in situ, gradually deteriorating
12/2020 wreck demolished on site and removed.
