Hi everyone

I came across this forum today when trying to find out why the AIS Liverpool site was not working.
I have been a ship spotter at Liverpool and New Brighton since the late 50s
I love to see ships that came to Liverpool in those days and to reminise about those long lost ships, saddened by the fact that most of them have been scrapped.(Cloud)
I am still a spotter at Liverpool and have photo's that will be posted in the near future.
I have a question. one used to be able to go onto the docks by gaining a pass from the mersey docks and harbour board. Is such a pass obtainable today?
the reason I ask this is, recently I was watching the tanker Gopa being pulld into dock from the dock road and noticed a man with a camera who arrived at the dock while I was there, and I noticed that he had a ID or pass attached to him

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Skully.
I'm sure one of the crew wil know the answer to your question.
Meanwhile find your way around the ship and enjoy the voyage.
