    Thinking about your switch Ralf,
    When the " Herald of free Enterprise" capcized because the bow doors were open.
    There was at the Dutch radio a man talking about it.
    It was weird that a vessel can sail away with the doors open,
    While he can't turn on his washing machine when the door issn't well closed.
    I always remember me that part of his colum

    Depends on what you call "cheap & dirty". Baltic is covered by restrictions on SOx and NOx emission so the cheapest HFO is out of bond, but they may use Low Sulphur bunker fuel while on the crossings. (??)

    This morning on national radio, a representative for the Swedish maritime adminsitration said that the main reason for the black out was the clogging of the fuel filters to the auxialiry engines. The clogging should have been a result of changing bunker from one type another, which had caused some kind of chemical reaction in the fuel.
    I have a feeling that they are running on "clean" bunker when berthed in Stockholm, and "cheap & dirty" when out on the sea...

    She is back at the wharf in Frihamen so no "big case": https://maritimebulletin.net/2019/11...off-stockholm/
    Apparent reason; Black out.

    SPL Princess Anastasia, ex. Olympia, seems to have had a blackout tonight and made a visit at the shore of island "Lidingö" in Stockholm.

    Smit Salvage left Longyearbyen on sunday afternoon and headed south to Holland with the three salvage boats.

    Then it looks like they have decided that the salvage operation of the trawler "Northguider" is postponed until next year?


    The Norwegian tugboat "Bryteren" left Longyearbyen early saturday morning and is sailing south to Stavanger.

    The English tug boat "Afon Las" sails south to Bergen.

    Thanks for the update: the salvage doesn't seem as straight forward as we could hope for.

    Appreciate the update, especially as there seems to be so much of maritime interest happening right now - just when I would not be able to keep up myself with everything that interests me!
