Yes, we learned there are self-described "ship spotters" who use AIS to go around to take, and post, pictures of ships and boats. Someone posted a really nice picture of ours going by some bridge in NYC in a rainstorm. I saved it.
Another time I was doing a delivery, pulling into a dock and a guy on a passing boat said he'd be posting the boat's picture to MarineTraffic or one of those. Looked it up later and sure enough, there I was!
