    This trawler incident is actually quite interesting, and I hope and pray they will be able to save the ship before it sinks. She is now a problem, but if she sinks, the problem will be so much bigger.

    This area is extremely sensitive.

    The Norwegian prawn trawler Northguider grounded in Hinlopen strait on Nordaustlandet at Svalbard is still in the same position after the crew of 14 were taken up by helicopters from the Governor of Svalbard on Friday 28.12.

    There is no visible oil leak from the ship.
    This showed an inspection from the Governor's helicopter on Sunday

    If the weather stays reasonably good, CGV Svalbard will reach the ship with the necessary equipment to try to save the ship during the next week.

    The big question is, of course, how much damage the ship is inflicted during the grounding.
    There are of course difficult working conditions in the dark, cold and snowy weather up in Arctic.

    A link from newspaper Bergens Tidene shows the ship under the inspection from the helicopter sunday.

    A Norwegian frigate KNM Helge Ingstad and a tanker has collided at 4:00 this morning in waters of Hordaland county.

    All aboard the frigate has been evacuated, and 7 has been injured.

    Significant damage to the frigate(?).

    This item offers a little more insight into what happened:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-the-papers-45254120 (paragraphs 5 - 9)

    The information needs to be treated with some caution as it quotes three British tabloid newspapers, which are not exactly famous for their adherence to the facts.

    That said, with all three saying much the same thing maybe there's some truth in the story that she jumped rather than fell.

    She was very lucky, very very lucky. From the "scene of the fall" there seems to be some kind of drum... if she sat on that one, I would understand her falling overboard. Otherwise, sitting on the railing could cause the same accident. Perhaps there needs to be another sign explaining another "common sense" thing, no sitting on top of this and that.

    But off course, I wasn't there, hence I have no idea about any details at all.

    The Lepsøy Reef (Lepsøyrevet) has seen an astonishing number of ship-contact up through the years - that is another one for the books!
