One doesn't have to necessarily use the table for pricing. That just provides some guideline.
Alternatively, one could just scan the recent vessel transactions (page 1 & 2), and see if there have
been any deals involving the type of vessel you are looking for. Course, there's no guarantee that you
will find that specific vessel type on a given week. Again, Weberseas was just one broker. That was
my "teach a man to fish" exercise.



Can you explain what a evergreen pool is?

A shipping pool is just that- a grouping or pooling of resources. Two or more shipping entities get
together and combine their resources to negotiate better deals. An economies-of-scale, if you
will. There's a Suezmax tanker pool called Gemini, a VLCC pool called Tankers International, etc.
I'm guessing Evergreen is just the name of the pool, one that focuses on product tankers.
