    Hi HMTMAJ,
    Thanks for that, I thought he had shot through or something, good to see he is still alive.
    Cheers

    Whilst in Istanbul we took a half day cruise up the Bosphorus,a magical journey that takes you up towards the Black Sea,on your port side you have Europe ,and on your starboard side you have Asia. There are many little ports as you progress north ,and they are full of beautiful houses and buildings. I will post some pictures of them elsewhere,tonight I am posting a meeting with a huge VLCC (Very Large Container Carrier) we steamed along together for about an hour. A Swiss chap was sittingnext to me and he had a satellite phone and he was able to call up the data on this vessel. She was new, registered in Valetta and owned by Greek Cypriots. Amazing technology, he had stacks of data on it, but I was just interested in who her owners where. Hope you like the pics,
    BrianD

    Hi Brian ,
    That ship is owned by a French company.Presentation of CMA-CGM
    from google.

    CMA (Compagnie Maritime d'Affrêtement) was founded in 1978 by the Lebanese businessman Jacques Saadé. Initially, CMA operated scheduled lines between the south of Europe and Lebanon and Syria. The company grew up quickly and was in 1995 the leading French company in container transport.

    In 1996, the government led by Alain Juppé decided the privatization of CGM (Compagnie Générale Maritime), itself the merging of Compagnie Générale Transatlantique and Compagnie des Messageries Maritimes since 1977. CMA purchased CGM. Johnny Saadé, Jacques' brother, sued him, and the battle for the control of the company was won by Jacques only four years later. Since Saadé is a personal friend of President Jacques Chirac and former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafic Hariri, the openness of the transacation was questioned: CGM had been recapitalized by the French state a few months before the purchase, the price paid by Saadé was fairly low, and CMA had hidden some big financial problems. A judicial inquiry on the privatization of CGM is still pending, and the French president and its party establishment are still haunted by the possible scandal.
    In 1998, the company absorbed Australian National Line. CMA-CGM was incorporated in 1999. The CEO of CMA-CGM is still the patriarch Jacques Saadé. The company is based in Marseilles.

    Today, CMA-CGM operates more than 150 ships, fully-owning about 30 of them. These ships serve 85 transatlantic and regional scheduled lines. CMA-CGM has 205 ports of call in 126 countries and 315 agencies. Regarding container transport, CMA-CGM ranks 1st in France, 4th in Europe and 5th in the world.

    The house flag of CMA-CGM is probably white with the logotype of the company and the subtitle "The French Line", since the CMA-CGM claims to be the successor of the legendary French lines.

    They are also to be seen here, on the West Coast of North America, bringing us goodies from China and other places.
