In de schoenendoos kwam ik Deze Discovery Bay tegen een Containerschip van naar ik denk de beginfase. Wat die snorkel op het achterschip moet?

Leuk bildje uit de doos, Huug !

De "Discovery Bay" was the first of six Full-Container-Ships of the OCL-Container-Lines and started the beginning of the
Full-Container-Service between England-North Continent and Australia.
The ship was built 1968 at Howaldt/Deutsche Werft, Hamburg together with 4 sisters (Encounter Bay, Moreton Bay, Flinders Bay and one more (?) The last ship "Jervis Bay" was built at the Clyde.
The ships were about the last ships with Stal-Laval turbines, (therefore the "pijp" on the funnel, preventing the smoke !) but later in the 1980's converted to Diesel. With 26.870 GRT ca. and 1530 TEU's and a speed of 21,5 Knots they were quite a sensation at that time. The "Discovery Bay" was in the 1990's sold to the Australian ANZDL-Company and renamed "Direct Kea", but later scrapped, because there is a new "Direct Kea" running since 1993 for ANZDL. There was also a new "Discovery Bay" (ex ACT 1)after the big P&O-Nedlloyd Merger.

Zoooooo lang niet !

The "Akaroa (III)" of the Shaw, Savill & Albion (on their England-New Zealand run) was built 1959 as the "Amazon" for Royal Mail. But in 1971 she was sold to Ugland/Norway and (like the Tanker above)twice converted to the auto-transporter "Akarita" and later "Hual Akarita" She was scrapped 1982 in Taiwan.
The "Akaroa (II)" had also a very long life !

ms Brabant van Fred Olssen. Komt in de latere benaming van dit schip de naam "Momoli" van een turkse reder voor?
In dat geval heb ik wat foto's en een verhaal.
Ik ben in nov. '89 a/b geweest ms Momoli ex Brabant ( 1954 ?). 42nm buiten HvH in de vaargeul van Noord naar Zuid ivm een ongeluk a/b.
Hoor graag.

Grrr

1.)The "Brabant" was built 1956 for Fred Olsen. She was sold in 1972 to E.Hareide, Alesund, Norway and renamed "Vatrasund". She was sold later again. This could be O.K. with Aadje and his turkish "Momoli" !?
2.) The "Mamaia" is a Romanian ship (homeport Constanta), she has the NAVROM-funnel. Her appearance is a little bit strange, i have the complete romanian yardlists back to 1960, I could not find her there, but I think, she was built much earlier (see the stern !) and rebuilt later.
3.)The "Owenbawn" seems to be a coaster of an english company (there was also a "Owenglas"), but the company seems to have gone for years.

I'll have some looks in my books and post it later !
YOU ARE KEEPING ME VERY BUSY, vrienden - anyway..

Hello Werner,

This topic was ment to be a dumping place for old photographs "out of the shoebox" rather than a request for info. However, it's always interesting to learn more details and to me it appears that you are kept busy quite willingly. Or am I wrong?
Nevertheless thanks for your, in many cases, detailed info

Brgds,
Bert de Boer

Hallo vrienden & Huug,

Bedankt for Your answers !
No Problem for "keeping me busy", I have a lot of time and a lot of practice ! als ex Sailor(Duitse and oostenrijksche schepen around the world) and ex Journalist (schepvaart & transport)heb ik nu med 60 enough time to go after my hobby and profession. I love this forum very much, all people are nice and there are no big troubles, like in some other forums, but I cannot say a lot about nederlands kustschepen - You have a lot of specialists in this forum - but older ships is my special thing. I have a lot of books (about 9.000 !)and a big internet-archive about shipping-history. (Including about 900 shipping-webcams worldwide !) So I am very pleased to answer Your questions in the future also and to be a member of Your group of a country, I like very much !
The only thing is : Ik kan niet so echt goed op nederlands schrijven, maar ik verstaa veel (Ik ben als jonge von 6 jaaren 1951 toe en familie in Utrecht als "oostenrijksche kind" verschikt gewest(echt leuke tijd!) en later als zeemand veel op Nederland gevaaren), so schrijv ik ook op engelsk. (Ik maag niet in de duitse spraak posten - jij weet warom...)
so I hope, You keep me in this forum also in the future ....

Bedankt to all
Werner uit Oostenrijk

P.S. The "Owenbawn" must be from an irish company and there is a foto of the "Owenro" on the Duivendijk-site :

Welcome at the forum Werner.
Whether you write in Dutch or English should make no difference.
The info on ships and boats, that's what counts.
Regards,
