In some cases Equasis is providing not enough accurate information about ship types. It is correct to place this ship and ships like Da Hua under Heavy Lift category.

Yeah, totally agree on that. Not only consistency, but also unity in what is the current rules. Funny with the "ship funnel"- category, each and every bloody time i tried to make an efford regarding the owner, charterer or the ..... grandmother of the first engineer, every time the moderator change it. Dont know why, but i know more of the members have noticed it.

I don't mind where they go Tomas, and I applaud the hard work done by the admins on here, but we just need to have consistency, that's all...

I uploaded a shot of the traveller, and as she has cranes that lifts 275 tons each, i thought this surely belonged in hl- category. Took a day or two, before it was stuck in GC.... I dont mind, but its strange that the moderators are so diehard-followers of what equasis says.
I dont know.

Thanks kelvin,

I'll put it back into the Heavy Lift category and see what happens. I originally put my pictures of the Da Hua into the GC category, but these were moved (correctly in my opinion) to the HL category by the admins. As both the Da Hua and BBC Greenland have 250t capacity cranes, I reckon they should be grouped together.........

Regardless of what Equasis or the Administrators say, the best people to determine which type of vessel this is are the owners.
They say it is a "Tween Decker/Heavy Lift" ship.
Just like the BBC Asia, Africa, Europe, Sacndinavia etc.

Tropic - In my opinion, for what it's worth, with that cargo gear she's a specialist ship hence you were right to put her under Heavy Lift Ship , despite what others might say :-D
