Having now unpacked my bag, I've been in Scotland for the New Year, and set my hard drives up again, the answer is that you indeed may make such a  suggestion however, the name that you have provided is as invalid as the the one given by the previous respondent.

May I suggest that you think along the lines of a station (gare).

Kings Cross !!

Is that a name of a station ? I know only one british station name ... and so stupid for me...  Waterloo station  >>:-(   For me Kings Cross is an Australian railway station close to Woolloomooloo and Naval Base

In fact I've seen long time ago this trawler named Kings Cross but she was red !    http://www.flickr.com/photos/29236302@N03/3219293781/ 

Then now with the name Lunar Bow and Pathway I searched for the owner compagnie site and found this - the third purser is Kings Cross http://www.lunarfreezing.co.uk/services/fishing  That means the red boat is now with the owner colour : blue

Title: Name that Ship - 2012
Post by: Liverbudgie on January 04, 2012, 10:15:29 pm
Indeed you are correct it is the Kings Cross.

The station is the London terminus for all East Coast main line trains running to the north. I know of the Kings Cross station in Sydney and the reputation the area had(has?) which i believe is somewhat similar to the London one; though I have to say I have don't have any experience of the service's which, I believe, are on offer in both locations.

Tatata, the Czechs were not involved in Austerlitz battle and are just indigeneous people around the battle place just like the Belgians of Waterloo - At Austerlitz it was Naploéon versus Russo-Austrian forces.

For Waterloo station imagine a Tokyo railway station named Pearl Harbour Station  :embarrassed:

Anyway it's just humour as if our dictator won in 1815 maybe we would have a parisian station named Mont St Jean (French name for the same battle) ... Then my mind is not in so far away past. Closer to us now, a lot of men from my family served the Free French Naval Forces based in UK with welcome and support from British then even one of my uncle served the Royal Nay during that time.

Back to mystery ship, what about this one ?

So, nobody have idea about this mystery ship ?

The first I've seen one of these ships (two sister ship)  I was surprised as they are similar to the US Coast Guard Bear Class Cutter, the job of the mystery ship is also similar

Post by: Liverbudgie on January 08, 2012, 02:08:11 pm
So, she is a a coast guard vessel of some sort but, thinking about it, I suspect in more to do with customs or even collecting silly people who try to cross the Med on rubber rings.  I surmise the location is not that of France but in the vicinity of 44°24′40″N 8°55′58″E  though, of course, I may be completely wrong in my assumption in which case I shall be having umble pie for dinner.

Well done, billyboy.  She did indeed start her life as the Manchester Ship Canal tug, "Ulex".  She moved on, via Malta, to Greece along with her sister ship "Undine" and was recent seen named the "Archangelos M" after spending time as the "Megalohari VII".
I chose this tug as my brother in law was Captain of the "Ulex" when she served with MSC Company and I was lucky enough to spend time aboard her.

Yep Duncan !

I don't know how you talk about that in UK as the name Red Ensign is not proper to talk about the country ...  In French I have to say "portant le drapeau Britannique"  (flying the British flag) without merchand marine or other ensign distinction

May be I have to say : flying the British Red Ensign  (there is many other Red Ensign from Australia to Ghana ... )

Anyway, her registration port was London (in UK .. not in Ontario or in California  :} )

It is the Vigour Owned by Carmmet Towing, she is seen entering the East Float Birkenhead after passing through A bridge from the Alfred Basin, I hope that will take care any confusion.  As far as I am aware there is no sister vessel.

Absolutely correct Norseman,  The Boissevain was a Dutch cruiseliner designed for over 800.  In 1943 she sailed from Liverpool and joined a WS convoy to deliver my Father and the 2 Bn Sherwood Foresters in North Africa.

Yep Tail UK you are right

Her name is Caledonia and I said wrongly scottish as in fact she received this name when she was in New Caledonia (French territory in South Pacific) and there, people are so "lazy"  that they are taliking about Calédonie instead of Nouvelle Calédonie and Caledonian instead of New Caledonian ... I was always "shocked" when I was there as for me Caledonia is part of Scotland  !!!    In New Zealand nobody cut and speak as Zealand  !

So her name was Caledonia instead of New Caledonia, her previous name Président Yeiwéné was the name of a Kanak independentist leader there.

She's used now mainly between Istanbul and Ukraine

The nurse is Violet Jessop who was a VAD nurse during the First War.

She was on the Britannic when she was mined therefore I presume you want the Olympic, Titanic as well, which is being greedy but never mind eh.

Got it! The lady was aboard the Olympic when she collided with HMS Hawke, the Titanic when she collided with an iceberg and the Britanic when she collided with a mine.  The lady's name was indeed Violet Jessup (although she was known to The White Star Line as "The Jynx").

An urban myth states that after surviving the Britanic, Miss Jessup would no longer be allowed to be carried aboard White Star ships.  I don't know if this is true but you couldn't blame them if they had.

How on earth did you know it was the Rind, are you a member of another site such as ais?  My humour falls flat at times I'm afriad, what I was saying is that she left Birkenhead yesterday and is due La Rochele, a port Xtian knows well I expect, on the 18th.

As for the Huguenots see here and other sites: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huguenot

As for us. We settled in Spittlefields in the east end of London as silk weavers apprently my great,great, great, moved to Coventry in around 1840/50 by canal, on the demise of the silk trade there he became an apprentice watchmaker and eventually set up a business in at 4, Mount Street, Coventry. This surived the bombing in 1940 and still exists; many of his watches can be seen in Coventry Museum though I have never been to look. My Grandfather moved to Liverpool in about 1880 a set up another watchmaking business; I am the fourth and probably the last generation in the family to be involved with watches and clocks.

Hi

Yes I am a night creature LB - I work nights and if I am not working I still don't go to bed before 5-6 a.m.
 {-) and no I am not a member of anything special

The answer to this just meant digging around on the internet. The picture has liverpool in the background,
and though I don't speak French (really wish I could read it at least) you mention two ports and 18. The internet
will get you RIND, then start looking to find a picture of a ship caled RIND. I found one where the paint was blue
not orange - that threw me for a while but I went with it anyway. Was it part of the game or just chat with Xtian?

The other thing I was doing was Slug asked about a tug at Sharpness with a red funnel with a gold crest. I mooched
about and think it is THOMAS registered in Southampton. I could only obtain one image - I would like a better one.
I am waiting to see if I was right.

Well that looks like the environs of Toulon; at first I thought it was the remains of the Aunis however, on reflection and consulting my copy of Janes 1978-9 I now believe it to be the remains of the La Saone of 1948, a vintage year I might add, which was ordered as a fleet tanker but completed as a merchant vessel before being returned to the Navy.

 No Norseman there is no game just me showing my ignorance. If you are stuck with French or any other language give Google translater a try, I find it to be pretty good.

Hummm in fact I was thinking this mystery ship more difficult as this picture is an actual one and the Saone disapeared from the view very long time ago.

In fact she is well the Saone and it's like surealistic as she came back to Toulon in 2009, 70 years after her launch and 30 years after her decommissioning !  Since 1982 she was out of view as used as breakwater in the military part of the small island of Levant, this part of the island is used as fire range test ... nobody go there !

 http://www.meretmarine.com/article.cfm?id=110242

The Saone and the Seine were pretty nice ship "old fashion" ones !

Yes, I went after the skippers job on the old one. The last time I saw this one, she was high and dry on a mussel bed in Plymouth I think it was. There but for the Grace of God etc!!!

Sorry Dave, I'm not into warships of this period and cannot tell which vessel is depicted.

I wonder if this thread is dormant?
May I stir it up and resuscitate it a little?

A couple of days ago I created a lines plan with DELFTship of a vessel that intrigued me
but for which there is next to none documentation available as far as drawings are concerned.
I was baffled about so much obfuscation that reminded me somehow of paranoia.
So much that I thought I should start filling the void with my own contributions.

Can you name the ship?

But I fear this little trivia is so easy that I probably first should have started
by only unveiling the right half (viz. the fore ship) of the body plan.

Deadwood - I must disagree - you most certainly can name the vessel
That aside my real interest is in the composition of the photo not the ship.
Warships aren't my thing, though I like their build threads. I like ferries
(mainly USA) and most older working vessels.

Your lines I will leave for another member as I was watching your interesting
conversation with Carl - so a bit unfair for me to pop back and solve it.

Yes she's La Gironde. There is two ferries on the link between Le Verdon and Royan crossing the river Gironde (in the Bordeaux vineyard area).

The older is La Gironde built in Spain in 2002 and the newest is L'Estuaire built in Poland/France seven years later.   They are very close in design but different in detail, having to count the window and portholes  :embarrassed:

Post by: Norseman on February 26, 2012, 08:09:42 pm
Hi LB

This is what I have dug down to

MV Albert J. Savoie IMO 5126287 (image 1) is an N -Class 31metre ferry built for BC Ferries by Allied Builders of Vancouver in 1961 and registered as Victoria. The Transport Canada search can be found at http://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/saf-sec-sur/4/vrqs-srib/d.aspx?lang=e&shipid=314008 . A Deisel twin screw of 10 knots with a vehicle capacity of 16 and a passenger capacity of 133. For most of her ferry life, she served the route from Darrel Bay Ferry Terminal, just south of Squamish, BC, to Woodfibre, a pulp mill community on the west shore of Howe Sound. For her last years at BC Ferries, she served as a training vessel, based out of Deas Dock, BC Ferries refit center. In 2002, she was officially retired from BC Ferries. She was then bought by Mountain Marine Transportation and renamed R.J Breadner IMO 5126287 to work around British Columbia as a work-boat out of Porpoise Bay .She was a BC Ferries identical sister to the N class Nimpkish, the Nicola and the Garibaldi II; the smallest class of vessels in the BC fleet.  The ship is currently for sale by Harlow Marine International for  $can199,500. This link to R.J Breadner and his family photos, it has the only helm image I have found so far and it's the renaming http://www.pbase.com/portwelland/mountain_marine_transportation_ltd

The vessel appears in the opening or 'homecoming' scene of  the 2004 film Walking Tall (original was 1973) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0351977/  She bears the name The Albert J Savoie, though seen there as that ferry I believe she was (by this time) no longer owned by BC Ferries. According to local sources Capt. John Horn had to take the 'Savoie' back and forth between Britania Beach and Squamish 14 times (including the film crew following in a helicopter) just for that one opening shot.  She very briefly appears right after the mgm lion in http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi2258961689/

She has also been in another movie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1053810/ called The Big Year, facts were damned elusive but the filming was at Darrell Bay near Squamish in May 2010 with Darrell Bay filling in as WSF's Anacortes Terminal. I found a picture of her arriving for filming; the Breadner possibly playing the Hiyu (no data yet). She flew an American flag during filming too. From the trailer at 1:40sec you can make out the out of focus vessel in the background  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCBAP2wId5M

Local boards in 2007 mention her appearing in a Suzuki car television ad for which the ferry was freshly painted in the Expo scheme and given fake bow doors. excapg2 is on The West Coast Ferries Forum at  http://ferriesbc.proboards.com/index.cgi he was working as the Skipper of the R.J Breadner  in the summer of 2008 so may also have been there in 2007 for the advert.

Page http://www.workinglives.ca/ferries/song-albert-j-savoie.html just caught my interest as there are some childhood memories that leads to a song being written about the man Albert J. Savoie and his working life around ferries. A researcher might find it tempting to pick facts from it – you can listen at  http://www.workinglives.ca/music/Albert-J-Savoie.mp3 or just read the text.

The British Columbia Ferry Services Inc. or more commonly known as BC Ferries is the Canadian ferry company that provides all ferry services in the western Canadian province of British Columbia. The company was formed in the late 50's, after a strike by employees of Black Ball Line caused the government to form BC Ferries. The very first route of the company was the Swartz Bay-Tsawwassen route with the first ferries of the fleet, the Sidney and the Tsawwassen serving the route. Since then, the company has grown massively with 25 main routes, 11 classes and 36 vessels currently owned by the company. The Spirit of British Columbia and the Spirit of Vancouver Island are the current flagships of the company. The company's worst accident occured in 2006, when the Queen of the North, bound for Port Hardy, collided with Gil Island and sank in the early hours of the morning. All but two passengers were rescued. Another infamous incident occured when the Queen of Oak Bay lost power outside the terminal at Horseshoe Bay and crashed into a nearby marina. Nobody was hurt and the ferry sustained minor damage. 28 pleasure craft, however, were either damaged or destroyed. My interest in this last paragraph really all stems from following the MV Kalakala history.

Very nice ship, very nice picture but no idea about her name, maybe you have to give us the right answer and post another one please to continue the game ?

If you altered the pic to hiden the name or compagny or flag, could you post it again without alteration as it's a very nice ship !

Before I do as you suggest some more clues - she is a Cunard ship and regard by some as the first real Atlantic liner, think of an area that encompassed northern Italy, most of Switzerland, France and Belgium or even a French president who was told to leave Canada for inciting the local population set up their own state.

Thanks to this clue and the list of all cunard ships, may I say Gallia

Strange as you talk about De Gaulle as inciting Quebec people to leave Canada. For us we think De Gaulle as the leader of the Free French Forces during the WWII and then after this a great political man for France.   But it's thrue that "Vive le Quebec libre" was like a sting for English speaking Canada and British history with Acadian stories etc...   ;D

Hooray we got there at long last!!

I did not mean that he was inciting the people of Quebec to move elsewhere what he was doing was inciting them to  declare themselves independent, at a time when there was a lot of unrest in the Provence.

Indeed De Gaulle was a great statesman - for the French however, he was regarded as pain in the rear department by everyone else but, at least, he kept us out of the common market for long enough for most people to see the con it actually is.

To see that Cross of Lorraine emerge over the horizon as one travels down the E9 (?) towards Colombey-les-Deux-Églises is one of the most memorable sites I have seen though.

Yes Perkina, 1965 out of Berwick by Fairmile, builder of the Fair isle class (or Sputniks). Perkina was
the last one (a modified version) built for the Tongan government.

Courtesy of GOOGLE ....

Wolverine - a side-wheel excursion steamer built in 1913 - was originally named Seeandbee, a name based upon her owners' company name, the Cleveland and Buffalo Transit Co.[5] She was constructed by the American Ship Building Company of Wyandotte, Michigan. The Navy acquired the sidewheeler on 12 March 1942 and designated her an unclassified miscellaneous auxiliary, IX-64. She was purchased by the Navy in March 1942 and conversion to a training aircraft carrier began on May 6, 1942.[6] The name Wolverine was approved on August 2, 1942 with the ship being commissioned on August 12, 1942.[6][7] Intended to operate on Lake Michigan, IX-64 received its name because the state of Michigan is known as the Wolverine State.

I was hung up on the anchor - I saw something similar on a build

the anchors were kept up to avoid snagging all the bodies floating

Beat me to it by seconds LB. It is the HMS Caradoc. Launched in 1916 and scrapped in 1946. It was probably best known for its involvement in The Nanjing Incident when a large flotilla of allied ships bombarded the city of Nanking in defence of foreign nationals within the city from Nationalistic ans communist forces. You are all extremely knowledgable. Well done.
Title: Re: Name that Ship - 2012
Post by: cabman on May 14, 2012, 12:17:04 am
Regarding the clock face, prior to WWII the most accepted formation for battleships was the line of battle where ships lined up nose to tail and fire broadsides at the enemy. The British found that due to poor visibility in the North Sea together with funnel and gunfire smoke, it was rare for all the ships in the line to be able to see the enemy so large clock face like dials were fitted to the front of the foremast and to the rear of the stern mast. Once a ship had found the targets range it would then display the settings on the dials to the other ships in the line. Similar dials were fitted to the gun turret sides to show the angle of fire to the target. The were removed when radio communication and radio equipped spotter aircraft gave instant and accurate transfer of target information.

Did I, amazing, since there is absolutely no chance I would have known about it since I would not have frequented such an establishment in that area in any circumstances whatever.

but before sat nav's were around knowing the pub names was probably the best way of getting good
directions to places. I know countless pub names in the N West and N Wales

Back to the important stuff ........ HAPPY BIRTHDAY LB  :-))

Seems that we've been ignoring "Name That Ship" for a while so here's one to start the ball rolling again.

Thanks TailUK .......I don't know the vessel but ask...could it be MV Sir Francis Drake?

The reason I ask is the clew offered on top of the nearby building....straight above the vessels name board

....and it looks like an image of Drakes face  {-) .....Derek

Not the Francis Drake I'm afraid, Derek, though I see what you mean.  I photoshopped out the name next to the face as it was a bit of a give away  to the location.
It's not an British boat and if you look at some of my recent posts you might get a clue about where this vessel is.

She has a name but Port of Amsterdam 3 (PA3) is correct.

Just old fashioned detective work based on some experience.  Well I recgonsied the numbers for what they were which didnt require any thought just some pre-existing seamanship/navigational knowledge, the photo seemed to be of a memorial book/commissioning book cover type not dissimalar to the standard naval offering and with the emblem it was obviously a naval ship, and as your from a land down under it had to be Australian,  therefore something close to your heart and what bigger naval tragedy for an Australian was the loss of the Sydney.  Well thats what I thought so a quick check on the words HMAS Sydney and the co-ordinates confirmed my guess.

I must confess that I had a head start, I have a book called Smoke and Mirrors, telling of the exploits of Q ships in WW1.
