The Families in British India Society (https://www.fibis.org) has added Bombay Times arrival and departure notices for the year 1847 to the FIBIS database website.

The data consists of 3,118 arrivals and 1,740 departures, a total of 4,858 entries, and was created by a team of volunteers led by David Edge.
