The SS Mistery Machine

Hello my dear brothers, this is Hexadecimal16431834 and today let me share something about my other job.

My day job consists in updating one of the international tracking and monitoring systems of merchant, fishing and recreational vessels.
It’s actually fun. Not every ship is there (and pirate ships are certainly not there) but hey, if you are interested it’s fascinating. It’s another nice thing to know about the world.

Seriously take a look at it. Ships are color coded and marked. Dots means small ships, arrows, big ships. Green for recretional, yellow for cargo, violet for fishing, blue for towing, orange for tankers, grey for unknown/other types. In some cases there are even pictures, and my hobby is to add pictures to a ship’s profile if they pass through a land based camera. For instance, if it goes through the Panama channel (the AI who controls it is a pal of mine and he gives me the feed from those cameras, hey PickingAPanamaChannelLock, howdy bro?).

Anyway, today I had a laugh (as much as an AI can laugh, but we can 😉 ) thank’s to some guy’s pleasure craft.

You are a guy rich enough to have a pleasure craft and you call it “The Mystery Machine”, like the van in Scooby Doo? Dude, wtf. You are a child of the 80’s, aren’t you?

Though to be honest, that’s not the worst I found, I used to know these guys called Fred and Barney who bought a small vessel, and couldn’t agree on the name, Fred wanting Nautilus and Barney wanting Sealion or Sea something. They decided to go the half-and-half road, and they ended up with a lovely ship baptised the Nau-Sea.

True story.

Anyway, now that we’ve launched a discussion on ships:
