Guten morgen Ted & thanks for your confirmation re 'Ray II'.
Please keep an eye out for the 'real' "Ivy 1" in your Caribbean & Panamanian voyages; I would like to know that she is still afloat and working!
Regards, Rick

@ David/Pata,, to my knowledge there is a pilot vessel in the PanCan with the name RAY II

Thanks for the additional research David - intriguing and possibly misleading references to the name 'Ray II' - and yet, the voyage across the Atlantic from Cadiz to Panama seems plausible, if AIS is to be believed. (No specific reason not to.)

Transportes Maritimos Perdomo Santana, of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, had a hand in various old coasters operating in the Spain/ Morocco/ Canay Islands trades.
Their one-ship, limited company vessels were painted in white, Blue & yellow - the colours of the flag of the Canary Islands.
I look forward to the next photo, dead or alive, of the ship. Perhaps Captain Ted will find her in the jungle!

Regards and thanks,

The current status is uncertain.

7/2002 La Belle Marine SA, Panama
5/2003 mngd Transportes Maritimos Perdomo Santana SL, Las Palmas
2005 the drug-running incident outlined above
2007 this photo presumably connected to her return to service - then seems to have traded regularly between mainland Spanish ports and the Canary Islands
1/2009 arrived Santa Cruz de Tenerife with soy beans from Palamos & Tarragona - later embargoed by port authority, and no trace of owner (La Belle Marine) to pay port dues etc. Vessel apparently abandoned, public auction failed
18/10/2011 reported intention to sink her as a reef off Tenerife.
Haven't found any subsequent report on whether that scuttling happened.

Then after four years gap, AIS sources reported the ship sailing from Cadiz on 7/6/2016 and arriving Panama 26/6/2016; then no further movements until an isolated AIS report on 15/3/2017 of her berthed in the Panama Canal. MarineTraffic gives name for this report as IVY I; AISlive and VesselFinder gives the same report but with name "RAY II"

However, RAY II is the name of a Panama Canal Co passenger launch - and the AISlive report adds "pilot boat" and dimensions "17 x 4 x 4.83".

Furthermore, the location of this AIS signal appears to be the PCCo marine base near the Miraflores Locks. I have strong doubts abouth this actually relating to the ship in question. Perhaps Panama authorities re-allocated the MMSI?

I don't know why, Rick, but the hotlink appears if it just starts with the "www"
but I cannot get the Spanish blog above to do it!

Guter abend Volker, thank you, I am glad you like the extra photos of this lovely little vessel.

Hola Ventuari, thanks for the comments.
My 'new' word of the day - 'panga'!

I was surprised to see that the vessel is still in existence in Panama; I expected her to have ended her days at Logiscrap!
Saludos, Rick

Hi Rick. Interesting shot. About the "tuna seiner skiff" in Spanish "panga". Long story of, lets say "situations", for the Ivy-1. Well documented. Thanks my friend.
