    I have always found it interesting to see the "next life" of typical and well-known Norwegian ships (such as this one).

    Kind of sad that her retirement in warmer waters didn't last - she kind of deserved it after having dipped her hull in Arctic waters off Finnmark for her entire life/service.

    For all those who've been on tour with Hurtigruten've probably noticed ro-ro cargo vessel "Sørøy" docked in Hammerfest, North Norway owned by Boreal Transport Norge AS.
    She went on her last trip on day before Christmas Eve 2015 and then she was laid up.

    She was sold to Atlantic Ship Management AS, Kristiansund in January 2016 and after a couple months at a shipyard, she was resold to Taio shipping, Rarotonga, Cook Islands.

    She left Norway in July 2016 and headed for Rarotonga, Cook Islands under her new name "Moana Nui" and
    arrived to pacific island mid-October 2016.

    The January 27, 2017 arrived "Moana Nui" Island Nassau to load coconut.
    She was lying to load off the reef when a large wave caused the ship to ran aground with major damage on her hull and rudder.
    The ship could not be salvaged.
    No one was injured when the accident happened.

    So it was unfortunately a sad and short foreign service for "Moana Nui" ex."Sørøy" who had served the people of the coast of Finnmark (North Norway) from 1967 to 2015.

    Pretty amazing that TWO vessels sank, not only one... but I was not there, I have no idea what happened. Luckily, nobody was harmed in the sinking.

    The new IMO rule about compulsory certified "Verified Gross Mass" (VGM) of containers before they can be loaded on ships has just gone into force.
    Here is an example of what happens when the declared weight is wrong: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lrhkn-H8Fg
    This happened in 2012 and should be proof positive that the rule are required for safety. Some exporters claim it was unnecessary additional expenses for them.
