    Re: Random maritime accidents.

    I suppose the pontoons is a way of preventing the sinking?

            That guy was very lucky when that chain parted.I would hate to think what that weight of chain will do to your legs. I nearly had my arm broke once when a small 1/2 diameter nylon line parted, and i was expecting it, thought i was out of the line of fire - wrong!

            Not sure what was going on with that crew transfer, crane on full reach, that much line out, no one on the tag lines - pretty obvious what the outcome would be. If they could not get anyone on the tag lines because of the position of the vessels, then surely they should not have attempted it with the vessels in that position. i used to do a lot of ship to shore craning, that can be bad enough, but it's all about timing and being quick on the winch controls. also very handy to have a remote 'quick release' on the hook. i always found that very handy, plus it was a favourite with those on the quay that would normally have to dive in and release the hook very quickly. All good fun.

          An error of navigation ..... not!.... funny, but great sculpture!

          Thai ferry sinks off Pattaya:
          http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-24796181
          Another report mentioned passengers rushing from one of the decks after an engine failure as causing the initial listing, while another refers to a water pump malfunction and the boat taking on water. I guess it will be some time before the facts are known.

                The RoRo vessel DFDS Britannia had fire in some cargo container on deck during a trip from Northern Noway to Bergen with a cargo of military equipment.
                During a sever storm it appears that some of the cargo got loose and a fire was started, which involved one or more containers of Aviation Fuel (Jet-3)
                Here is a ling to a series of photos taken after the ship eventually reached Bergen: http://www.vg.no/bildespesial/spesial.php?id=11000

                      A video of the Typhoon handling anchors for McDermott's Crane barge "CB 30" has been posted in the Towage and Marine Operations thread.

                          The BBC news reports a fire on MS King Seaways, the DFDS Newcastle to Ijmuiden ferry, with clearly some question marks about the cause of the blaze.

                            Not good. King Seaways was Brittany Ferries 'Val de Loire' in a previous life, and was built for TT Lines as 'Nils Holgersson' in 1987.

                          A semi-sub under construction "sinks" at the shipyard in Korea: http://gcaptain.com/odfjell-drilling...Captain.com%29

                          A mini event, probably cause by human error, like leaving manhole covers open. The solution to level the rig is simple, set her down on the bottom all around until the problem can be rectified. (No thrusters installed yet)

                          The comments under the article is quite descriptive.
