    For those who are interested in the MV Sarinda. The vessel has been sold and the new owners have started to restore her. You can follow their progress on You Tube here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MczJ6iYEZNo&feature=em-comments or search you tube for ML1392
  • alan says on Dé Céadaoin 2 Nollaig 2020:
    Yes all updated Paul..Eastern Vanquish should be leaving tomorrow 4th due 7th
  • Paul M-B says on Dé Céadaoin 2 Nollaig 2020:
    Stolt Cormorant is heading for Cadishead, currently just past Land's End.
    Eastern Virage (currently at King's Lynn) is rumoured to be inagurating the new grain flow to Esprit, but I haven't been able to confirm that.
    CEG Universe appears to be loading cement at Drogheda and I'm keeping an eye on her.

    Hi there

    Myself and my partner love watching and photographing ships, tugs etc.

    We are hoping to come to Salford on Saturday 17th October and wondered if you could advise us if any vessels will be in then?

    Thanks loads, your website is brilliant

    Yes noticed Cape yesterday
  • Paul says on Dé Máirt 15 Meán Fómhair 2020:
    Arklow Rogue transferred to the scrap wharf yesterday.
    Arklow Cape looks like it’s the next grain shipment, these are coming from Sweden now, she’s just passing the Isle of Man.
    Regards,
    Paul
  • Paul says on Dé Domnaigh 23 Lúnasa 2020:

  • alan says on Déaordaoin 6 Lúnasa 2020:
    Paul yes think it is for Salford.. Arklow Raider next for Cargills ..possible 2 every week now for a while
  • Paul M-B says on Déaordaoin 6 Lúnasa 2020:
    Bornholm is currently off the Lleyn Peninsular with destination GB MSC. It is cement carrier and has come from Limerick (the same voyage Arkonia has been doing recently). Could be heading up to Weaste?
    PS thanks for the heads-up on Arklow Valour.
  • alan says on Dé Céadaoin 8 Iúil 2020:
    Good spot Paul not been checking lately ..have updated site Cheers
  • Paul M-B says on Dé Céadaoin 8 Iúil 2020:
    Alsterdiep has passed Runcorn, destination seems to be Manchester and one tracking website lists cargo as agricultural produce - maybe grain? Having said that, its movements haven't been updated for 45 minutes.
  • alan says on De hAoine 19 Meitheamh 2020:
    Paul Not always for the upper part, have to keep eye out, sometimes they are for Ellesmere or Runcorn when they put MSC
    Last visit by this vessel was for scrap
  • Paul M-B says on De hAoine 19 Meitheamh 2020:
    Hunzedijk is currently off Penzance with destination GBMSC eta 20/6. No idea how far up it will come.
  • alan says on Dé Máirt 9 Meitheamh 2020:
    Cheers Paul
  • Paul M-B says on Dé Máirt 9 Meitheamh 2020:
    CEG Universe is coming back from Drogheda destined for MSC again. Currently sailing with Arkonia but that is headed for Garston.
