Ahoy there @jamiewayers and @rindy_r and other kindly souls who like the feel of the sea in the face!  Not everyone understands that since the EU referendum no sailing vessels have been allowed on the Thames. It's the law I'm afraid. So ShipADay was the first casualty of the vote. Once we have the nod from Captain May then it's all hands on Ant and Deck - casting off around the London Boat Show!  During the downtime I've been watching these ducks trying to get themselves in a row.

#shipaday Lets all say Boujour to LAustral as she bravely navigates the Thames sailing under the French Flag like a scene from Les Miserable. Everyone has something they love about France - from Croissants to Napoleon there is is something for all tastes. Having a capital city named after one of the worlds leading DJs and socialites also ensures that the home of charcuterie (cold meat market) and Cannes (hot meat market) will always remain as one of the top countries in my log book to visit…

#shipaday Sure everyone is talking about how NASA might have just discovered gravity waves in Pluto's atmosphere but why is it that no one seems to want to even mention that theres an earth moving device on Plutos hull. Whoa conspiracy theory? I think so. Im not saying she was involved in the JFK death or the Miley Cyrus birth (given that it was proven to be Billy Ray Cyrus) but given her 77m length overall and beam of 11m with a gross tonnage of 1530 tons then I think we can all agree that…

#shipaday Like everyone else - I ran screaming to the East Wing balcony when I first heard that Monica had been seen floating down the Thames and I was concerned that it might have either been either the Geller or the Lewinsky that was suffering from one of their top 10 indignations but I relieved to discover that it was actually the Monisia which tuns out to (maybe) be the Polish version of Monica that was heading out towards the English Channel. The Monisia resembles one of those things…

#shipaday progress is neither automatic nor inevitable said Martin Luther King Jr. when he once struggled to describe this hard working tug of the Thames. Progress is actually a twin screw Damen Stan tug licensed for ship towage & suitable for mooring line running barge handling crew transfers with a heated wheelhouse forward cabin galley wheelhouse with seating and WC. #misquote #instaship #justthefacts

#shipaday Like everyone else - we at ShipAday are suspicious of folks that seem to be able to survive working only one day a year so it is something of a relief to discover that at least one of the eight reindeer from Santas working party has found a way of earning an honest crust for the other 364 days of the year. In the non-christmas delivery period you will find Dasher working as the training vessel for Bristol University Royal Naval Unit (URNU) providing the opportunity for students to…

#shipaday When the ShipADay team heard the news that Mick Hucknall had been seen bobbing facedown around Margate Harbour after a storm we quickly decamped from HQ to the Kent seaside to join the vigil but on arrival in the historic holiday town currently suffering from a revival it appeared that like most other news of the fiery frontman for Simply Red who once claimed he had slept with over 1000 women it was a rumour based on a mistruth based on a dream. As you can see from the photo theres…

#shipaday When anyone thinks of Easter they are either worrying that they havent made plans to get away for the holiday or worrying that they have made plans to get away for the holiday and are now stuck on a motorway or at an airport. This type of anxiety means we sometimes forget the true meaning of Easter which owes its origin to Eostre or Eastre an Anglo-Saxon goddess of light and the dawn who was honoured at pagan festivals celebrating the arrival of spring. In medieval times a festival…

#shipaday Holy Roman emperor! Its Charlemagne the twin-screw aggregate dredger! This trailing suction hopper dredger is primarily designed to win transport and discharge sand and gravel for the construction industry which explains her being named after Charles the Great king of the Franks king of the Lombards and first emperor of the Romans and of what was later called the Holy Roman Empire. Shipaday fans will delight in the key feature of her bulbous bow which significantly reduces heaving…

#shipaday If all surveys were as nicely put together as this one I would definitely complete and return them to be in with a chance of winning an iPhone 4 - especially when they promise to deliver a state-of-the-art resolution to the survey market with permanent spread for geophysical and hydrographical work to be able to deliver quality results. Boom! But that's not the only highlight of this wee river warrior because she has a maximum speed of 19 knots and cruising speed of 17 knots…

#shipaday At ShipADay its our job not to discriminate or actively promote a class-based system between the different types of vessels on the Thames (If you float you rock! is one of our many mottos) but weve seen more tired looking dredgers and craft that look like should should sink over the last week to really get our sails up so what a pleasure to see the SANSSOUCI STAR arrive for a brief overnight stay in our back yard. Despite reporting her current location as Copenhagen cruising…

#shipaday We received a number of complaints about the recent lack of Shipaday posts so Im now THRILLED to be able to pass on that it was actually a matter of National Security rather than any personal issue of laziness I may or may not have been experiencing that was at the heart of the period of silence - and heres the proof! Ive used the special Enhance action in Coreldraw 1.3Beta to enlarge the name of this vessel. Given the warning we received from the NSA and GCHQ about filming from a…

#shipaday We wouldnt normally accept submissions from the airline industry but this photo appears to have captured the incredibly rare moment as a British Airways Embraer 190 transitions into a waterborne vessel. What a world we live in! #planesailing #hydroplane #instaship
