      I know what some of these signs mean when it comes to loading a ship, but what about the top two horizontal ones...., can she, or rather COULD she sail with the ocean on her deck....?


      And here's the final sight of her as she point her bow towards the deep....

        Make sure you post back when you find out what the two horizontal lines mean. I cannot beleive she routinely sails with her deck awash. It does not leave much reserve boyancy.

          Interesting picture of the loadlines... for sure the uppermost line, is the deck line and is not a permissible loading line. But, then there is another one, I'm not sure what the one just below he deck line means.

          You can read a lot about the different load lines and the plimsoll mark here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterline

            I belive, or rather am sure, that the uppermost one is the deckline. The one below must be the reference line from which they mark the other lines below and the main plimsoll in the center.

            I belive, knowing nothing else, that my picture of 31st January show a vessel "overloaded"...., but hey..., that's me, a person not familiar with nautical this and that.

              Here's a series of pictures taken of the sinking ship. The pictures were posted in the local newspaper in Molde.

                That's just terrifying.....I sometimes forget that ships are ..um..on WATER, and they can sink...

                  In a morbid way I like picture #7 in the new link. I love to see the under water shape of the hull and running gear (propeller, rudder...).

                  With a ship loaded so low to the water it is no surprise that a leak brought the ship down. It remindes me a bit of the Great Lakes freighters here in the USA. I have seen meny pictures where their decks are under water during a storm. One leaking deck hatch and down it goes.

                        Wonderful updates from the north - so nice to see your updates again and that you have come out of winter-hibernation!

                        I just can't help but laugh at the name Havsnurp.... funny name...

                            To return to the sinking of "Bulk Star" for a moment again, here's a link to a film just released from the crew of the Heidrun SAR-helicopter.

                            I urge you to take special note between about 40 seconds and 50 seconds in the film. (First the vessel sinks like a rock, but suddenly comes shooting out of the sea like a rocket....).

                              That's absolutely terrifying...what causes a ship to bounce back up like that???
                              How horrible to be in the sea waiting to be hooked up and reeled up to the helicopter....

                                what causes a ship to bounce back up like that???
                                You know, the ship was loaded to maximum with gravel. When it sunk, bow first, the deck hatches broke loose and all the gravel fell out of the ship in a second.
                                Now the ship had a huge amount of trapped air inside it's stern, so much so that it created an instant enormous lift. That's why the ship bounced like that.
                                Hope that was understandable....?

                                How horrible to be in the sea waiting to be hooked up and reeled up to the helicopter....
                                Horrible all right, but you know what...., personally I belive they LOVE the sight of a helicopter belly like no one else....
