The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model.

News report on 25 March 2011 from the vesseltracker web site:
"On Mar 24, 2011, a fire broke out aboard the "Frankfurt am Main" in the port of Hamburg. Garbage sacks were alight and caused development of dense fume. The fire rescue was called and tackled the fire from land and sea. The ship was berthed at the Norder Yard for overhauls at that time."
