Would this count as an Arklow if I saw it?

Comment by Howard - Liverpool on May 3, 2018 at 20:04

Most certainly Colin - rules are to be stretched lol

Hi Howard I do not think this is Ex Arklow I think this is Ex DEIMOS

mssi 352779000

imo 8500898

Ex arklow Bridge

mssi 236711000

imo 9433389

also does not have a unloader where as Ex Deimos (Aasvik) does 

check out this info

The hunt goes on, This Aasvik has single funnel the other has twin funnels and this one has a large drop hull at the bow and Deimos doesnt. I think its the Arklow version with an unloader added. - More research lol

Equasis says Aasvik (only one found with that name) was Arklow Brdige from Nov 2015 to 1st December 2017.

IMO: 9433389


Flag: Gibraltar

Deimos, IMO: 8500898 was Arklow Bridge but became Deimos 1st June 2017 which is quite some time before Howard took the photo.

Besides, the IMO 9433389 is visible on the stern. IMO numbers never change, whereas MMSI numbers do. And that is the beauty of the IMO numbering system.

A stern view of the Deimos shows it is so different to the Aasvik. When referring to an "unloader", I presume this means the JCB type digger? If so, this is dismountable, although it looks as if they have added the rails to move it up and down the ship.

And a bit more: Here is a photo of the Arklow Bridge from June 2017. Note the IMO number:
