    Tracking Of The Freewinds

    Starting this thread to post periodic updates of the location and movements of the Freewinds. (the asbestos ridden bucket that the SciCons own). Link below;

    Will remain Anonymous due to the medium I access this info. More to come.

    Re: Tracking Of The Freewinds

    Any chance of a dump of the DNV history for the ship? I've been (cautiously, tentatively, and somewhat half heartedly I admit) trying to secure that locally, without success so far...

    Re: Tracking Of The Freewinds

    Sea-Web is an interesting (and expensive) source.

    What do the various arrows mean? Is there any more information to add to the timeline? It confirms that Freewinds ought to be at Bonaire today so for the moment and probably up to January we have her pretty well pinned down:

    November 2009:
    15-16: Curacao; eta 06.30, 16: dep. 17.30 (capacity now 360).
    16-17: Aruba eta 17.30 (Mon). 17: Aruba dep. 24.00 (Tues).
    19-21: Aruba eta 21.30 (Thurs). 21: Aruba dep. 23.00 (Sat).
    22-24: Bonaire (capacity now 220) 24: Bonaire confirmed by Sea-Web (WWP anonymous post).
    24-26: Curacao.
    26: Aruba eta 21.30 (Thurs). 28: Sat dep. Aruba 23.00.
    29-30: Bonaire (220).
    30-02 December: Curacao, eta 08.00, dep. 17.00.

    From shipping schedules It is also clear that at the moment and up to January 2010 she is back to her old weekly cruise round the ABC islands. Dumping in Bonaire, taking up passengers in Aruba or Curacao. As if nothing had happened about blue asbestos or dumping oily waste.

    It would be interesting to know how many passengers there were on board in fact.

    Re: Tracking Of The Freewinds

    If they have any trouble at the usual place, be sure to check if they are in Greece port in Athens.

    They were there one year ago. I think they had their Freewinds tour for the Athens Org at that time.

    Maybe someone can check if they tried to clean the sick boat there...

    Re: Tracking Of The Freewinds

    I have vessel movement data spanning back to December 1997,

    Wiki link seems fairly accurate. If anyone wants specific info then can get - though if you can't provide a decent reason as to why you want it I'm not going to waste my time.

    Example of details I can see:

    Re asbestos (which is blue fyg) - please see:

    It is listed under the Casualties section with the number '1'. Further details are missing/unavailable

    Remember this thread is only to keep an eye on her, anything else that can be dug up is a bonus.

    Re: Tracking Of The Freewinds

    I like where it says 'Asbestos removed.' With one bound she was clean!!IIIL!!

    Lawrence Woodcraft doesn't believe this. And he ought to know.

    Otherwise Lloyds is just repeating local press reports which said nothing much in case they upset someone. No independent inspection. Just about everyone involved in the refits and repairs of 2008-9 turns out to be a Scientologist (check the names in the Maritime Reporter and Engineering News October 2009).

    The Sea-Web information is very impressive but might be best used to confirm the cruise schedules. They are published long time ahead of the date and are liable to be changed or cancelled if not enough people book. Also she sometimes visits eg Bonaire without a booking.

    Currently DNV shows her passenger safety certificate ran out end October.

    Re: Tracking Of The Freewinds

    I once thought she had actually visited Miami but it was the same scam, when the officers go to drum up business. They have Freewind events on dry land, and talk about going onboard (Tom Cruise said so too). They also have org events on Freewinds. I am not a Scientologist so I don't know if these events are on the ship or at Flag.

    But as far as the timeline goes she has always been in the Caribbean, going round and round and round... The travelling prison-ship, dumping sewage, spreading asbestos dust and The Way to Happiness.

    This article was discussed in another thread a few days ago. Most of the people named have a Scientology record.

    This is not THE Freewinds but ANOTHER Freewinds. Look for the tags decrepit, rustbucket, asbestos, 10,000 tons, smallest, oldest dirtiest cruise ship in the world.

    okay, mea culpa on that HOWEVER! the latter part of my post is rather interesting, any boatingfags mind lending a hand on tracking this down?

    I beg to differ, check the IMO numbers
    that number USED to belong to the M/S Boheme before it was bought by the scilons

    Thanks, Sponge, you're a gem. I have the entire text in plain English if anyone wants.

    As for Freewinds II, she is a pleasure sloop, whatever that is, owned by a group of psychs. Joke? Probably. But our 10,000 ton cruise ship, not.

    Re: Tracking Of The Freewinds

    It's in a German forum but also in English. And yes, everyone should check out the vids. Including the two latest.

    And no, Anonymous did not force the inspection of Freewinds which revealed asbestos; that was done probably by DNV looking at rusty hull struts, ie, collapsing failboat. But who cares?
  26. auchraw Member

    Re: Tracking Of The Freewinds

    Sorry I didn't mean to complain. Can't have too much of a good thing and the Maritime Reporter article is a good thing. 6810811 is certainly the IMO ref for MV Freewinds, formerly Boheme, call ref H9CK. The other Freewinds is probably a fishing-boat owned by a medical practice in Florida. Lucky sods.

    Same remarks about threads appearing, working through and vanishing still apply. Keeping track of WWP is becoming a full-time occupation.

    MARINE DESIGN: M/V FREEWINDS [Contributed by CoS]

    A magnificent ship renovation via Elbow Grease, Heart & Soul

    In today’s “I need it yesterday” world, emphasis on quantity often overpowers quality, while the quick fix can supersede the correct one. Step back, take a deep breath and enjoy the fruits of a tremendous labor, a labor of love that resulted in the top-to-bottom renovation of storied ship with a unique owner.
    By Greg Trauthwein, Editor

    Nobody can afford this level of quality anymore. Jon Rusten, COO and VP Development A cruise ship earning a new lease on life via renovation is hardly a unique concept. Costing upwards of a half a billion dollars with a lifespan of 30 years or more, these specialty ships need to finetune décor and amenities to stay relevant to the cruising public’s evolving taste. But the cruise ship M/V Freewinds is no ordinary ship.

    Born as the M/S Bohéme and a founding member of the Caribbean cruise shipping industry operating out of Miami, M/V Freewinds has for more than 20 years been owned and operated as the cruise ship for the Church of Scientology, and was a recent recipient of a top to bottom, inside out renovation which qualifies it as one of the finest ship renovations ever.

    M/V Freewinds to its crew and caretakers is much more than a ship: it is home, it is a refuge, a place of study and reflection. It was with this frame of mind that – when the decision was made to keep it as the Church of Scientology’s aquatic platform for years to come – helped to plan and execute the job.

    “This was a historic renovation, as this is one of the first ships to start the cruise shipping business in the Caribbean. To bring a ship like that back to better condition than when she first arrived is unheard of … it is quite fantastic” said Tomas Tillberg, Tillberg Design U.S., who was responsible for taking the original plans of a land-based architect to their maritime conclusion, providing drawings and specifications so the job could be bid.

    “The effort and enthusiasm of the people involved” is what stands-out on this project, according to Jon Rusten, COO and VP Development, Ocean Development Group, a man with more than a few high-profile cruise ship projects under his belt. “The level of quality is incredible. Nobody can afford this level of quality anymore, and they are independent of commercial consideration.”

    In 2005, when the Church of Scientology was evaluating the future of its marine operations, it had owned and
    operated M/V Freewinds for nearly 20 of its 37-year existence. The question essentially revolved around two words: renovate or replace.

    “We were looking at the age of the vessel, and trying to determine what our long-term look was going to be,” said Ben Garner, the chief engineer. “We surveyed several other vessels in 2005, and we came to realize that we had a goldmine sitting right underneath our feet.”

    “The waiting lists for a new building were far past our operational plans,” said Ludwig Alpers, Port Captain, M/V Freewinds. “We did survey available vessels but the market was slim and there was nothing that would have been a viable upgrade to the vessel we already had. To put it bluntly, they don't build ships like they used to.”

    Old Ships = Good Ships?
    If nothing else, the maritime industry likes a good ship story, and the M/V Freewinds (ex-M/S Bohéme) has a good one to tell. The ship was built in 1968 by Wärtsilä in Turku, Finland, for Wallenius Lines as M/S Bohéme, measuring 134 x 21 m with a 5.5 m draft and powered by a pair of Wärtsilä-Sulzer RD56-8 diesels, generating 14,000 BHP and driving the twin-screw ship to 20 knots, according to the ship history site OpenDNS. se and Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    Originally envisioned as a car ferry to operate between Bremerhaven and Harwich, the ship featured a strong ice class hull and was designed to carry 460 passengers. But as often happens, plans change, and the fate of M/S Bohéme did too as the ferry line didn’t turn out to be as successful as planned, and at the same time Commodore Cruise Line was in search of a new ship: M/S Bohéme was targeted. At keel laying it was re-planned to be a cruise ship, and with M/S Bohéme, Commodore helped to start what is widely regarded as the birth of the
    modern-day Caribbean cruise industry, offering year-round, seven-night cruises out of Miami. Given the difference between the ship’s original design and its eventual use, a number of problems quickly presented themselves, and the ship was rebuilt at Germany’s Blohm + Voss in Hamburg in 1970, in part to address a subpar air conditioning system and to upgrade the refrigeration system. Following the rebuild, for the next 12 years the ship had the same weekly route: Miami – Puerto Plata – St: Thomas and an overnight stay in San Juan. P.R., with the last port being Cape Hatien. In 1986 the ship was sold to San Donato Properties Corporation, Panama, and renamed M/V Freewinds, and Majestic Cruise Lines operated it for the Church of Scientology, its present owner. Upon taking its new cruise ship, the owners set out on a 1.5 year renovation using local contractors in Curacao and church members, which essentially transformed the ship from a cruise ship targeting the general public to a luxurious floating retreat for members of the Church of Scientology, according to Alpers.

    “In 1986, the Freewinds fit the target size for the vessel's planned operations, to serve as a religious retreat for the parishioners of the Church of Scientology,” said Alpers. “Vessels were surveyed all over the world but the Boheme was the perfect combination of size and condition for our needs.”

    M/V Freewinds Today
    “One of the most significant achievements on the project was to join the talents of a large number of professionals and artisans and drive their efforts to a common goal with the up-most quality in the final product,” said Carlos H. Reyes, president of The Reyes Group and Design Support Team, lead Architect on the

    When the decision was made to remake the ship, the owner consulted with several leading organizations that could take its overall vision for the ship and deliver form, function, a budget and a plan. Enter Ocean Development Corp. and Tillberg Design U.S., a pair of firms intimately familiar to the growth of the U.S. cruise
    shipping industry, as well as a host of contractors in different ports of call.

    “I got involved in the 2nd stage when they really wanted to make something special,” said Jon Rusten of Ocean Development Group. “I helped them define the scope of work, strategize about how far this would be taken, and provided timeline, budgets and vision, to help them facilitate, define the objectives and bring it to reality.” The Freewinds hull, engines and equipment were all in excellent operational condition, and in researching replacement equipment it became obvious that it would be difficult to find equipment compatible to its existing systems, and that the lead-times, customization and suitability for the ship were all prohibitive.

    “Very early in the planning, we recognized the unique fact that the biggest problem we were facing was not that the equipment was in bad shape or needed to be replaced, rather it looked old and worn and needed a face lift. That really became the mission,” said Captain Mike Napier, Master Freewinds.

    “We came to the project by kind recommendation of Tomas Tillberg to the owner,” said Reyes. “Our main objective was to achieve a level of products according to the overall vision of the project and produce the necessary components and elements within the budget assigned to it. We had to conform a great group of artisans and overcome difficult issues of all kinds as soon as the ship arrived to Colombia, where the interior
    refit took place”

    Thus embarked the plan to not simply ‘spruce up’ the ship, but to extensively and completely renovate each and every space on the ship, with the intention of making it better than the original when installed nearly 40 years previously. Making the scope of the renovation all the more amazing: while the organization brought on a bevy of contractors to fulfill much of the heavy duty fabrication and construction, it was the crew who was responsible for the intricate and laborious renewal and renovation, including a meticulous cleaning and rejuvenation of the engine room, the engine control room and the bridge (including the machining of the new stainless steel parts, overhauling the equipment, painting and polishing), all while the ship stayed in operation.

    “The restoration (which physically started in August 2008 and was completed in June 2009) was done parallel to the scheduled interior upgrades to the vessel and was much, much more a matter of man-hours and the elbow grease of the crew,” said Alpers. “I can't even imagine what a project like this would have cost if it had been contracted out commercially. Every crew member onboard chipped in some time on the project.”

    The challenges when embarking on any ship renovation are numerous.

    “The most challenging thing was the requirement to ‘think outside the box. It required a lot of creation and new ideas on how to just take an ordinary piece of equipment and turn it into a show piece. You had to get away from the usual ideas of throwing some new paint on it and rather envision what it would look like with Stainless steel control levers and sight glasses and a new stainless steel base,” said the M/V Freewinds Naval Architect.

    While the ship and plan were indeed unique, Tomas Tillberg of Tillberg Design U.S. said that the age of the ship
    and the condition of the equipment didn’t pose any specific problems, per se. “We did another ship along those lines years back – the QE2 – but nowhere near to these standards, to this level. I think the challenges are pretty similar to the refits that we do on the other ships. You plan the best that you can, but you will always have surprises. The challenge, really, is to get her to the expectation of the owner.” The expectation of the owner was
    to “Preserve the heritage of the ship and to make it look completely pristine”

    Another challenge was maintaining the operational aspects of the equipment while also upgrading the looks. For example, the mooring bits take quite a bit of load and it was not wanted that they just replace them out with stainless steel piping and plate; that would not have the equivalent strength. So they clad the existing bits with stainless steel sheeting, and then welded new top plates on them, making them look like they are fully stainless but the full steel structure is still there.The engine room, with its original Wärtsilä-Sulzer RD56-8 diesels, posed a dual challenge, first and foremost regarding the sheer size and surface areas (70,000 sq. ft.) of the spaces, but also the fact that it would remain in full operation.

    “There was no way we could just waterblast or sand all of the paint off of the equipment, bulkheads and piping,” Alpers said. “In the end, we located an environmentally friendly paint stripper that was not solvent based that we could use throughout the engine room spaces without creating dust or fire hazards … this was really key to getting the machinery spaces into a pristine condition.”

    This included using 15 different sandpaper grits to help uncover and ultimately restore many of the brass highlights present but covered for decades by paint.

    The renovations also included an environmentally friendly hull treatment, a non-toxic glass flake epoxy system with no environmental impact. This provides a very hard coating which makes it difficult for marine growth to adhere.

    Today the ship accommodates 340 passengers in 125 cabins and carries 256 crew. Renovations complete, the story of M/V Freewinds begins again.>>

    Not if we can help it.

    Tom Cruise Exposed to Asbestos! Does he have Mesothelioma??

    Scientology Cruise Ship gave Cancer to Celebrities??

    Can we come up with some catchy headlines and put together the facts that place Tom onboard the Freewinds when it was blowing asbestos through its ventilation system?

    What other celebrities can we place onboard the Cancer giving cruise ship?

    If we write up some gossipy articles with the sources to check on and send them 'round to the gossip sites maybe someone will take a bite and spread this cancer all over the web? I see the Mesothelioma ads on TV ten times a day, so does the rest of America. Its not something that needs much splainin.
