UglyShips.tumblr.com

As you may have noticed it is a bit quit around here. I would like to see it otherwise but unfortunately commitments in my personal & professional life are coming in the way of actually posting some good posts about the Ugly Ships of the world on here. And believe me: they are still out there.

So, in order to not let this site go down I have come up with a cunning plan! For the coming time I will start posting pictures (and only pictures) of a variety of Ugly Ships on the new extension of this site: UglyShips.tumblr.com so at least you will be able to get your daily/weekly/monthly fix of Ugly Ships. The tumblr set-up will allow me to post quicker & easier so hopefully the updates will be more often over there.

This doesn’t mean I’m not going to post “quality” post on here anymore, I will but only when the time & circumstances allow me to.

I will think of a way to get the pics posted here as well, maybe a weekly post or so, we’ll see.

So enjoy the ugliness on the other side,

Grtz

Save Our Seafarers

Please read the below text from SaveOurSeafarers.com & please take the time to send a letter to your government….just follow the links.

Over 800 seafarers are being held hostage by armed gangs of Somali pirates, in appalling conditions, subject to physical and psychological abuse, for up to 8 months.

Their ships have been hijacked at sea and they are being held for ransoms of millions of dollars. The human cost to seafarers and their families is enormous.

This affects YOU. Piracy is beginning to strangle key supply routes. 90% of the world’s food, fuel, raw materials and manufactured goods is delivered by sea. Nearly half of the world’s seaborne oil supply passes through the pirate-infested parts of the western and northern Indian Ocean.

But the world’s politicians don’t seem to realise the severity of the crisis. World trade is under threat. Piracy costs the global economy $7-12bn a year. Yet even when caught red handed by naval forces, 80% of pirates are released to attack again.

You can help stop this hostage-taking and help restore the freedom of the seas. Please add your voice to our worldwide call for government action. More robust laws, stronger enforcement of international conventions and firmer political resolve are needed to stop these pirates.

It will only take you three clicks to send a SOS letter, in your name, directly to your chosen Head of Government.

I support this campaign to urge our governments to step up their efforts to eradicate piracy from the worlds Seven Seas & the Indian Ocean in particular; for the safety of me & my colleagues crossing the affected area’s in the Indian Ocean (which continue to grow in size) & to help those already held captive ….can you please do the same??

Thank you very much, on behalf of me & my seafaring colleagues.
