Big Cargo Ship Across from the RV Park
Today's interesting thing, big cargo ship across from the RV Park - ERNST OLDENDORFF loading I think ore from Myra Falls mine at Argonaut Wharf Campbell River BC. Taken during some particularly nice light near sunset.
Good pictures Ray!
Love to look at ships!
Ray, if you like to know more about a particular ship, download the MarineTraffic app. Simply click on the magnifying glass icon and enter the ship’s name, then select the ship from the list. In this case, the Oldendorff originated in Yokohama 22 Oct carrying general cargo.
When a particular ship is underway, if you click on the Track icon, it will show you the ships path of travel.
MarineTraffic relies on the AIS and VHF radio systems for accurate updates, so there are times that a particular ship may not show up on MarineTraffic. For example, when my son’s oil tanker is in transit between Alaska and Washington, it won’t show up on MarineTraffic while it’s off SW Alaska and northern BC. Military ships and small boats without AIS equipment don’t show up on MarineTraffic at all.
I’d encourage people to download MarineTraffic app then minimize the display screen to show world-wide ship traffic and be prepared to be amazed at the number of ships at sea.
Another interesting app is Flightradar24. If you want to know where that airplane overhead is headed, what airline, what flight, how high and how fast they are moving, open Flightradar24 and take a look.
Both apps are free.
Thanks so much for that. When we camp on the Sacramento River we often have freighters come through- only a few hundred feet from us. I'd like to try those sites.
Thanks, Willie we use the website version quite often, helps us know about when the big cruise ships are gonna be passing by, well in normal years.
Anne had an alert set up to view the Disney one.
