    Re: Random maritime accidents.

    I did wonder about the claim that she was sinking - mind you, would not have surprised me if the larger ships bulbous bow (ramming tool) had done some damage below the water line.

    Tell you one thing though, i don't think i would have wanted to be on the smaller ship, i hope the crew all packed plenty of spare underwear!

        And then, maybe something may change because of these problems.

          Re: Random maritime accidents.

          IS this vessel back in service again?



          And what is the latest on the drifting rat-infested ship with the difficult to remember name.... did she sink? (LUBLOV ORLOVA)

          I think I read somewhere that the emergency beacon had been deployed and that they presumed the ship sank...

                Yes, thank you Mark. Interesting to read about the repairs. Expensive accident. Always a lot more cost involved in putting things like that right, compared to what it would have cost to fit those spaces out originally.

                Interesting to watch the video clips from inside the ship, not often you get to see such damage from the inside. Big hole!

                  Did you all see this recent collision in the Straits of Singapore?



                  There is a hole lot of "honking the horn"... as if that would help in the collision.

                      An almost impossible to believe accident: http://www.vesselfinder.com/news/116...mber_246220195

                      What is the probability that a tiny rowing boat is hit by a ship in the nearly "empty" part of the Indian Ocean??? Very small!!!

                      In another forum the question of whether the rowing boat had a light or not was raised? Only of legal interest. Nobody look out of the bridge windows anyhow. (Although at Lookout is still required by law)

                      More practically, did he have a Radar Reflector and AIS? Then he will show up on one or more of the numerous screens on the bridge, which may get somebody's attention.

                        Do I detect a note of irony in the use of "may"?

                          IN the beginning, they reported a small fire... but when she came to port, it looked a whole lot more serious:

                            Accidents can happen everywhere and at any time.
                            Here is a video of an accident in progress in Levanger, Norway: http://adressa.no/tv/?id=23212

                                This wooden cargo boat was seen sinking off Sekupang, Batam Island, Indonesia last week:
