    Re: look into marinetraffic.com
    From: George Huxtable

    I had pointed to marinetraffic.com as a useful free site for real-time
    information on worldwideship movements, as discovered from AIS broadcast
    information.
    
    Carl Herzog commented-
    
    "Marinetraffic.com is one of several such sites. Others include:
    vesseltracker.com, aislive.com  and shipais.com."
    
    I've taken a quick look at these. They aren't really in the same league, for
    the likes of us. Vesseltracker appears to be a subscription-only service,
    with a free demo version delayed for 24 hours to take all the usefulness out
    of it. Aislive appears to need a subscription, intended for users in the
    marine trade. Shipais appears to be a free site, set up by, and for, UK ship
    enthusiasts, but its real-time AIS tracking is taken from marinetraffic.com,
    so you might as well go there direct.
    
    So the alternatives Carl offers are not, for us, a viable improvement.
    
    George.
