Does anyone one know if this damage was caused by the propane bottle(s) explosion? I find it hard to believe they would store propane below decks, as far as i'm concerned that is a big 'no no', i would never allow propane bottles in the hold or in the workshop - i would not let it down any hatches to be honest. It should always be on deck. If you have a propane leak below deck you have big problems seeing that the stuff is heavier than air.

    Thanks again thijs for showing these, very interesting to see.

          I would presume this vessel is now beyond salvage. The beaches of Alang, equally polluted, ain´t that far away.

            Found a video of the fire onboard the Yeoman Bontrup, the fire is in its early stages when this was filmed. For some strange reason, this video will not embed, so here is the link instead of looking at a blank screen. Sorry

                Thank you for the links Bill. The first video was obviously shot during the very early stages of the fire. Shocking to see just how that fire spread to consume so much of the stern structure. But i am still surprised that it was able to spread like it did.

                Having now seen two videos showing fires burning uncontrollably inside these enclosed conveyor structures, i really am thinking that such structures really should be fitted with internal automatic fire fighting systems. There just seems to be virtually no way of fighting an internal fire from the outside. It is also obvious that strong firewalls should be fitted between the housing and the ships main superstructure, thus preventing such a fire from spreading like this one did.

                    When will they learn... ? What if a 2000+ passenger vessel with a 800 crew runs seriously aground, and needs rescue?

                        Good to hear there were no serious injuries, and also very glad to hear that BP had bugger all to do with that platform!

                            That is very sad news. Indeed my thoughts arre with the chaps family and friends also his shipmates aboard Geir II

                              A tragic incident indeed, but it is likely to cause some meaningful alterations to the way things work and are done on the factory deck on both this and other modern fishing vessel, which is at least a good thing.

                              The Geir II is "State of the Art" longliner, with a moon pool through which the lines are hauled. As can be seen, the working deck is fully enclosed. Nobody need to be out on open and exposed deck in normal operation.
                              The living condition on board is like on a Cruise Ship, or better. A big difference from the conditions on the "Polstjerna", seen in another thread on CVF.

                                Tragic... my condolences goes out to all those that in some way are affected.

                                I see they have the Norwegian flag up on half mast as well.

                                Being the "virgin-run" I hope the commission which is appointed to find what went wrong, really does find the problem and a good way to ensure that it will never happen again.
