  • Kelvin Davies Chris, I think you may have got a bit confused.
    Ocean Shearer's correct IMO is 9590931, same MMSI as stated. Equasis shows it as built 2016. DWT 36,028.
    Currently sitting in Darwin harbour. Photos of this vessel are on Marine Traffic
    Cheers

Kelvin Davies commented on Andrew Kirby's photo
"Now then; I just searched this site for 9533816 (IMO for this ship). The old images are Colin Smith's from 2015. That 235xxx MMSI would be valid in 2015 as the ship was still on the UK register at that time with that number."

"Just to add to the confusion... interestingly, if you search for 'spirit of france' on this my.pinkfroot.com site it only returns the old images for 235082717 :-)"

Howard - Liverpool commented on Andrew Kirby's photo
"Go into your photo Andrew and edit the tags to the new mmsi. Also change the title to "Sprit Of France", (The other spirit of france is an inland cargo ship) What have you started lol ! I put it in as mmsi 209490000 - new tag - spirit of…"

Lee Brown commented on Andrew Kirby's photo
"Further investigation reveals 235082717 was originally assigned by the UK and the current 209490000 has been assigned to it's new Cypriot flag... A good example of Kelvin's comment about changing MMSI # !!!"
Thursday
Lee Brown commented on Andrew Kirby's photo
"Just a thought... I suspect Andrew's image isn't showing because the Tag doesn't recognise the MMSI # and the MMSI appears to be incorrect... In addition, I think the existing tag is being read as one string with the number being part of the name...…"

"I just went back to Ship Finder on PC and lo and behold! Images! However, these were images of other vessels; when I checked earlier, guess which ship I was searching on? Yep. Andrew's Spirit of France! Apparently no other photos uploaded yet."

Lee Brown commented on Andrew Kirby's photo
"Hi Kelvin;
I use Shipfinder on my iPad... it WILL show a thumbnail alongside the info of an AIS return IF an image has been uploaded against that MMSI or IMO; if there's no image uploaded, you'll only see a blue panel...
I've also just tested Shipfi…"

Howard - Liverpool commented on Andrew Kirby's photo
"I use Ship finder on the PC Kelvin and if I do a search using IMO it takes me to the ship with pictures in a pop up box."
Thursday
Kelvin Davies commented on Andrew Kirby's photo
"I wish I knew the answer to both Howard's and Andrew's questions! I only ever used Ship Finder on my Samsung mobile and this used to give a virtual thumbnail size image of a vessel that was showing up on AIS. Now it doesn't show the image, just the…"

"Thanks Kelvin - can you use the IMO to get the pic to appear on ShipFinder - I thought it was mmsi only?"
Wednesday
Kelvin Davies commented on Andrew Kirby's photo
"And this is why I think MMSI is not a good reference to use. 209490000 is the correct number for this vessel but this can, and does, change. MMSI is only a telephone number! Far better to use IMO number which never changes through the whole life of…"
