why shipspotting / miksi laivabongausta?

Home at seaside town, which is one of the country's best-known export ports, motorboating as hobby, Kotka-Hamina-St Petersburg shipping lanes nearby. That´s why. And by the way, it´s very easy to become addicted...
Koti merenrantakaupungissa, jossa on yksi maan tunnetuimmista vientisatamista, harrastuksena veneily Kotka-Hamina-Pietari laivaväylien läheisyydessä. Siksi. Ja sitä paitsi, näiden seuraamiseen ja alkuperän selvittämiseen jää koukkuun...
