Zomaar een vraagje,

Word het schip Canical wel eens in Leixoes gespot. Ze schijnt onder de Potugese vlag te varen en tekoop te zijn.
Was wel benieuwd hoe ze er nu uitziet.

mvg Henk.

Hi Henk,
"Canical" used to be a regular caller into Leixoes and the douro (Porto) with bulk cement but I have not seen her here or on the coast for at least 3 years, I also remember the ship when i was on a time charter running Shoreham to Gibraltar on the "Humber" the "canical" was then called the "Charles Cruz"and used to run containers into gibraltar, a very fine looking Ship. According to Equasis she is now called,
Nana-K
grt 1133
built 1971
IMO 7034153
Flag Korea.
mvg,
Peter..

Thank you very much Peter.

I have been almost for 3,5 years on her, then here name was Viking. And when jou get older you get a bit sentimental over the first ship you saild on.

mvg Henk

De Storm lag ook in Figueira met een lading gebroken glas. Peter Barc was even aan boord en werd zeer gastvrij ontvangen . Aan boord heeft men zijn eigen havenkroeg gecreeerd. Bijzonder schip met eigen Bar en vrouwelijke stuurman, hier trots getoond door de Kapitein.

Het antwoord omtrent het waarom de "Coastal Worker in Leixoes".
Door Peter Barc:


The Coastal Worker is working on a Dutch run project to place a wave generator (alongside the coastal worker on the photo) off the coast about 10 NMs North of Leixoes in a depth of about 30meters of water, due to the swell the piston on the generator will go up and down and subsequently start generating and the electricity will be sent ashore via a fibre optic cable to a holding station that houses large batteries from there the electricity passes via a meter (like a flowmeter) to mesure the amount of KWs that will be sold to the domestic network, this wave generator is a prototype and was supposed to be launched last year but due to technical problems (stability) that arose on the launching site it was postponed for recalculating purposes and hopefully launching or sinking will take place within the next few weeks weather permitting. At the moment we have wind Nly 6/7 and swell 5-6 mts so conditions are not good.

The wave generator was stationed and anchored okay and when I left late last night they were in the process of ballasting her to sink her on the bottom it was estimated that she should be sitting on the bottom some time tomorrow, the ballasting is a very slow job due to the very precise monitoring that has to be done for insurance purposes, one container on the coastal worker just full of computers linked to list and pressurre sensors and also all stress points are under very close scrutiny.
