Is that a conical air filter?
I never knew these training flights also use conicals.

Whoa. It seems like a decade since I was last on TB. The past weeks have been taxing on me. But it gives me immense pleasure to inform you that we added 6th ship to our fleet. It’s christened AIDNI BRAHM. If you’ll remember we had some misunderstandings with sellers before purchase of AIDNI LIBERTY. We had some over-the-top advances forwarded to these sellers. Since reverting these transactions would have caused some heartburns on both side of Atlantic, we decided that we’ll pick another ship from these sellers & arm-twisted them in selling us AIDNI BRAHM at quite a evenhanded price.
The photos of A/BRAHM will follow shortly. She is not as big as her siblings but is getting us good business.

ACE: I’ll get some info on your query & revert. Pardon me the delay.

Default Aidni Brahm

Feast your eyes. The weather was awesome & the night long rain had washed the ship. This is about 4th or 5th day after takeover. She has been christened "Aidni Brahm".
I do not have tech photos as yet but will post soon with all specs.

After reading through all the posts and seeing the amazing pics, I am lost for words and the only one that came out was WOW!
Never really thought about a life outside cars.. The speed boat, water scooter, parasailing boat rides were the only ones which I experienced. This is wayyyy wayyyyy more!

Thanks so much guys !

Hai..
Is she a supramax or handymax grabber?
Not only your ship but port also seems very clean (after the rain?) not like an
Indian port!
Congratulations again!

Default Ice Cool Ships

We started a quarterly in-house magazine to have active participation from our floating & office staff. These pics are from our first ever edition. The below pics earned first prize. (Courtesy: Ian - Deck Cadet, Aidni Katrina)
The ship had called a Russian port in Bering sea and the entire ship was covered with ice.

I had read about hijacked ships reappearing with new names, and some cosmetic mods to cabins and outlines to avoid detection, with formers owners losing the old ship, on some shipping related Magazine several years back. A bit like stolen cars being sold with fake papers.

How do you vet the legality (or otherwise) of the ships you buy?

Asking specifically since you mentioned that you always look at used, rather than new builds.

@vijaypalsingh: Just curious as to whether your ships have ice breakers as i had seen that the entire sea freezes up. How do you manage in those times

I think icebreakers are a separage classification - like 4x4 and sedans.

Dear BSD, Everyship has an individual number (VIN) which never changes, even if ship changes its names every year of its existence.
Its called IMO (Intl Maritime Organistion) no.
However somewhere earlier I did mention that we give special emphasis to previous owners & pick up ships only after thorough checkup & definately if they suit our business interests. The *type* of ships that you are talking about do exist but then their buyers are also limited &/or are mostly sold to graveyards. Bhavnagar & Alang "SPECIALISES" in this process. Here you can get papers of already scrapped ships & re use them to bring another ship. I'll not get into details of who & which authorities are hand in glove.
We have had such offers at 1/3rd the actual price but with some 'conditions apply' process, like that the ship MUST not go to Europe, Australia & definately not US. We were open to trade them in African, Indian , South American & FE continents. In fact one "INDIAN" (not refering to statehood) travelled all the way to our OSLO office to make an offer, in person, along with an Ethiopian national. Believe me they wore expensive Italian suits with best silk ties, that I have ever seen. They made me feel like a peasant. But that's another story.

They are special class ships & assist as & when required. I do not have any ice-class ships. But most of the ships these days come with BULBOUS BOW. This helps is slicing through half a metre of fresh sea ice without help of special cutter ships. I'll try to post pic of BULBOUS BOW.

Just googled and got this image. Also, THANKS for vijaypalsingh for this informative thread. It reminded me my good old days of collage when I spent time on INS Bedi (I guess it's minesweeper) as a "Naval Cadet". It was once in a life time experience.

Thanks,
Pradip.

OMG. How did I ever miss this thread. In fact I came to it once but then lost it. Shoot this is huge. A Shipowner on Team BHP.
Dear Vijay Sir, How do you find time to come on Team BHP? I can relate to kind of work hours you must be maintaining i.e. if you are operating from one country.
I am a marine surveyor & closely associated with shipping work.

Ok now I need to re-read your thread once again. Goosebumps are all over me.
