    Re: Random maritime accidents.

    Also not really an accident, more like "accidents waiting to happen".
    taken from Massmond Newsclippings today:
    Here's where we should be playing the theme music for the "Good, the Bad and the Ugly." The Paris MOU has just released its new performance lists for flag states and recognized organizations. From July 1, 2011, countries that are signatory to the Paris Memorandum of Understanding on Port Control, will use these lists in determining which ships to target for inspection. Ships flying flags listed on the "Black list" are liable for banning from the region after multiple detentions.
    A total number of 84 flags are included on the latest "Black, Gray and White (BGW) List ." Eighteen are on the "Black list", 24 on the " Gray list", and 42 on the "White list".In the previous year, the number of flags listed totaled 82 flags, with 24 on the "Black List", 19 on the "Gray List" and 39 on the "White List".
    DAILY COLLECTION OF MARITIME PRESS CLIPPINGS 2011 – 159
    Distribution : daily to 16675+ active addresses 08-06-2011 Page 11
    Most flags categorized as very high risk in previous years remain so in 2010. The poorest performing flags are DPR Korea, Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Togo, Sierra Leone and Montenegro. New on the "Black List" are the flags of Tanzania United Republic and Azerbaijan (both medium risk).
    Flags with an average performance are shown on the "Gray List" and include the United States, which appears to be at the better end of the "gray" spectrum.
    The best-performing flag on the White List is Bermuda (United Kingdom). Next in line are Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The Paris MoU also agreed on the performance listing of Recognized Organizations (ROs) . These organizations (most of which are classification societies) have been delegated with statutory responsibilities by flag States. This table uses the same method of calculation as the flag state table but counts only those detentions, which the Paris MoU considers to be directly related to a statutory survey carried out by the recognized organization.
    Among the best performing recognized organizations were: Registro Italiano Navale – RINA, American Bureau of Shipping - ABS and Det Norske Veritas - DNV. The lowest performing organizations were: Phoenix Register of Shipping – PHRS (Greece), Register of Shipping – RSA (Albania), International Register of Shipping – IS (USA) and Bulgarski Koraben Registar - BKR. Source : MarineLog
    The standard of Flag State Control is what is reflected by the first list while the the second ranks Classification Societies who does most of the statutory survey on behalf of all / most of the Flag States.
    The US doesn't do too good on these lists. Probably due to their old fleet.

    PS> This is abstracts of the lists, not a ranking of all flags or Classification Societies.

              Sometimes things go wrong....
              Last Saturday in Algeciras.
              Good luck for the crew, only minor injuries!
              Finaly, the Rotterdam has some work to do!

                    She is loaded with 2.400 tons of chemicals. 2 crew members saved, 2 missed. They report it will take days to remove her from this place. Two tugboats have to keep her in place. Traffic is completely closed. Very difficult situation because of the high water.

                    The states attorney has presented the result of an expert assessment, which examined the cause of the capsizing. They found out that the ship had more than 630 ton to much load aboard. Sulfuric acid has such a high dense, that the ship only might have used 60% of the loading volume...

                      New Norwegian accident report made available, for those interested:

                      http://www.aibn.no/Sjofart/Rapporter/2011-03

                      Rapport om sjøulykke 8. mars 2010 M/T Bow Cecil, LAGU5 - IMO 9143219 arbeidsulykke i sjøen på vei til Brasil
                      Underveis fra Houston, Texas til Salvador, Brasil ble det gjennomført en inspeksjon i skipets forpiggtank. Under inspeksjonen falt maskinsjefen ca. åtte meter fra en stringer, ned til bunnen av tanken. Maskinsjefen døde av skadene han pådro seg. Undersøkelsen har fokusert på fartøyets og rederiets sikkerhetsstyringssystem, samt nasjonalt og internasjonalt regelverk med relevans for denne ulykken. Det fremmes ingen sikkerhetstilrådinger til rederiet eller fartøyet, da det allerede er gjennomført endringer i sikkerhetsstyringssystemet. Det fremmes tre sikkerhetstilrådinger til Sjøfartsdirektoratet.

                              "Those idiots" does a very useful service, demolishing ships that is no longer useful in the marketplace, sometimes not even safe to operate.
                              Where do you want to put all old ships otherwise?? (Or old trucks for that matter)
