I'm menneni from Finland, male, 3 kids, wife and some weird life experiences, that i'm about to share with the great ATS when the time is ripe.
I read something yesterday and it boggles me still. That is the reason that sparked me to join the site.
Unfortunately for me, theres this minimum posts thing, so i would like to have a answer to my question into this introduction thread if possible. Mods
will kill this if needed, i'm sure, i have no intention to make negative impact nor anything alike.
That aside, did anyone read about ship accident yesterday? The one involving Corvus J and Baltic Ace. The latter was the sunk one. I had a feeling
that there is something more in that story.. well i checked out and found "something" to ponder. Corvus J's (the one who sinked Baltic Ace)
registration was switched during the accident from Germany to Cyprus, and MSM:s around the world are reporting that the ship sailed under Cyprus
I got the ship data from marinetraffic
Could anyone set me to rest and clarify if switching registrations is totally normal behaviour. Would anyone with good researching skills be
interested about checking out if there is story behind the story..?
And sorry for my bad english.
Have a nice 6th of december, btw this is the day of Finnish declaration of independence!
EDIT: and yes, i searched the web if someone has made a similar note.. but no, i did not find anything from google regarding to swithing the
registration. Even the callsign was modified.

EDIT2: Another thing what adds to the strangeness is that i commented our local newspaper about the issue, wondering what that is all about, nothing
else. The comment was never published.. The only published comments were like: "yeah, there goes my porche" and "who cares about cars when ppl
