      These little water taxi's ferry guests between three hotels and the the main Universal Orlando compound. I have been able to find very little information about them. Since they operate on private waters they do not carry the usual, very visible registration and I could not find a manufacturers data plate. They must have some type of diesel powered azipod or inboard propulsion system as they can turn within their length and reverse without taking the engine out of gear.

                    Bulk Carriers loaded with sand arriving Jurong West Anchorage, Singapore, 27. Febr. 2014:






                    There are anywhere from 6 - 8 such vessels in port at any time, bringing in sand for construction, or reclamation from Cambodia, Vietnam or the Philippines.
                    6 buoy berths have been arranged especially for them.

                          Bulk carrier ready to leave for another load of sand:


                          Every one of the buoy moorings are taken:


                          This one is empty and will soon leave:

                          Sorry, I didn't get all of those last two bulk carriers.

                            Seven stern lines to that one mooring in the third photo? That must be a strong mooring.

                          "Genco Ocean" heading south this afternoon loaded with salt.(There is of course nothing else to load here in Torrevieja than salt!)

                            Hello Ralf
                            Yes we are back in Torrevieja and enjoying the spring down here in the south.
                            We have been here a month now and the weather is excellent as usual at this time of the year.
                            I'll see if I can post a little now and then so it will not be so long between each time I post something here on the forum.

                            Thank you for your nice comment
