That if you look at the Marine Traffic Website, the name of our vessel is not 'Istaboa', it's 'Memphis'.
We made this change deliberately. It's a long story, but since we've made that change, we are hailed on the radio more often and have had more useful communications resulting from being contacted.
Me thinks... Folks find it difficult to pronounce 'Istaboa'.
We answer to those names also.
Thanks, Larry T.
