Hi,

The deal for the ship, whose engine pics I had posted in my last post, could not go through but we have got an alternate deal from same Owners. As the wise men say, everything happens for good, this ship in fact is three years younger than the earlier one & as reported is in running condition. We inked the deal this morning at Indian time. Presently she is on her way to Imbituba port in Brazil. I'm posting here some profile pics of the ship & will post more pics once we takeover the ship next week in Brazil. Till then please take care, Happy Holi & Id-e-Milad.

Congrats Vijay. Whats the name of this ship? Pardon my ignorance but I did see a Painting brush on the Bridge Control photograph. Is it of any importance or is it just for cleaning (brushing off the dust) the screen.

Vijay, so who evaluates the ship's condition on your behalf? And that 'steering wheel'.. is that the rudder control?

@vijaypalsingh

Wondering how did I miss this thread so far

I myself a shipping man, existing in this field (commercial & operations) for
about 30 years, is very glad to see a shipowner in this forum.

I worked in Bombay for almost 20 years ( I knew many SCI commercial people as well as Varun Shipping, the lost glory -Scindia steamship etc etc). From 2000 onwards I moved to Chennai and presently in home town but frequently travel to chennai to meet my Exporter /Charterer.
(you may able to guess what I am doing?)

I am not a techincal man but boarded many ships during my employment which includes Bulk carriers/tankers/container ships etc.

Your valulable information gives many in this forum about what is a ship and its details etc. First time this topic is being discussed in this forum.

Great going - congratulations

The name is not yet finalised but we may name her A.. CHALLENGER.

Brush: You got it right. Its there just for dusting purpose. Initially a 4" brush was always used on chart tables, where the 'COURSES" for the ships were laid on charts. Since all the work was done with pencils, the brush was kept to clean the powder left after heavy erasing so as to reuse the same charts again.

Every country has marine surveyors, who can be appointed to evaluate the ship's condition on one's behalf. To avoid heavy travel costs & unnecesary visa works we usually employ such surveyors & assessors. Once we get an EXHAUSTIVE report from them, we check on the negative background of the ships, like if any detentions etc. Once these are cleared, we go ahead & either seal a deal or start the whole process again. Time taken in such practice can vary from few days to few weeks.

Steering Wheel & Rudder control: Its one & the same thing.

Saw this thread just now and...I don't know what to say! Never in my life I've imagined getting addicted to ships and the related things. This is one of the most interesting and informative threads in T-BHP. Congrats Vijay. Wishing you all the very best for your future purchases.
