          Thanks for the update Janihudi, a tragic affair, but at least the body was found. A very small comfort for all family and friends of this man.
          Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

            i had thought that the captain would never be found,get in the water by storm,the currents flow,and they hope that he was still in the tug,he had 4/5 days to dissapear/get lost.

            instead the body beached at Hoek van Holland,after 2 weeks??????????????????????????????????????????

            then i 'm thinking, where he was al that time.

            still not know what was happend that night,with 3 survivors,they had told that the captain was gooing back into the tug to save the engineer.
            the tug has floating a while on her side,before she was tipping complete over,in that time the captaine most dicidet to surch for the engineer
            best regards Thijs

                  I was hoping nobody would notice that he was American. That's so embarrassing!

                    Cruise ship Clelia II has engine loss in heavy seas in Drake Passage, Antarctica

                    I had first seen this on the BBC and then I found in Maritime Matters that the ship that responded to the distress call and from which the video was filmed was National Geographic Explorer.

                      Looks like she is in really rough seas: I can't imagine the conditions on board. Can't be good for anyone.

                        From Maasmond Maritime - Shipping News Clippings this morning:

                        "A cruise ship carrying 160 people on a return trip from Antarctica lost power in one of its engines on Tuesday in rough weather, the Argentine navy said. Crews were later able to fix the problem and the ship was sailing to the world's southern-most city Ushuaia in high seas with its passengers unharmed, it added in a statement.
                        One of the cruise ship's engines had broken down and caused what the navy termed as 'serious . . . handling limitations', but causing no risks to its passengers and crew.
                        The vessel, described on the Polar Cruises website as a refurbished, ice-strengthened, all-suite luxury cruise ship, telephoned its emergency to a search and rescue coordination centre in Ushuaia, 3,200 kilometres south of Buenos Aires. The engine failure occurred mid-day on Tuesday about 845 kilometres south of Ushuaia in the Drake Passage, where the ship faced stormy conditions including winds of 90 kilometres per hour. 'There are no risks (to passengers or crew),' a navy official told AFP at the time. The Clelia II set sail from Ushuaia on Nov 30 on a week-long cruise to the Antarctic continent."

                                Wonder why there seems to be so many freak things going on with cruise ships lately. Could design have anything to do with it?
