Hi folks - please excuse this intrusion into your forum, along with my abject knowledge of things maritime.
There’s a passenger vessel, called FREEWINDS, owned by the Scientology cult. It was registered (classed?) by DNV up until recently, when she seemed to be having some trouble getting her Passenger Safety (Security?) Certificate renewed, along with a couple of other bits.
This vessel has been in the news for things like using improper methods and untrained workers to remove exposed blue asbestos, and dumping sewerage inland in Bonaire. There are a bunch of other thing as well, but more of interest to observers / critics of Scientology, than to do with the ship per se.
Anyway, point is, we’ve been unable to find out what classification society she is now registered with, which is making it much more difficult to keep an eye on things. I’m aware there are sites out there like http://e-ships.net/ which seem to hold this sort of info, but require a hefty subscription - too much to justify a single query!
So I’m wondering if one of you lovely maritime professionals might be able to find out and reply here?
