Is it just me or are there more ships going down the Manchester Ship Canal these days? Is there anywhere I can look to see exactly how many ships are going down each day etc ? Another one has just gone past so that's 3 now in the past 3 hours alone. (it's now 9.25pm) We've been noticing for a few months now that more are passing and they also seem to be going down much later at night as well as during the day. Maybe we are just noticing them more as the bigger ones (Coastal Deniz in particular) make the floor and windows vibrate. We've been getting stuck more in the mornings and at tea time with the bridges being off too. Coastal Deniz went past about an hour ago and because I know that one's name and loud sound as it passes so often I looked it up and found it on a ship AIS? website site which showed it passing ours. Its a cargo ship (obviously as it's always full of containers). The details for tonight's passing showed it as Cargo... TYPE CARGO HAZ A (71).... anyone any idea what that means ?
