OAA ships located the missing "Destination" that disappeared in the Bering Sea on the bottom near St. George, Alaska. Over the spring, NOAA ships surveyed the area last known to the "Destination" with sonar to locate the missing ship in nearly 250 feet of water. With the wreckage and debris field located by NOAA ships, a U.S. Coast Guard dive team aboard the Coast Guard Cutter "Healy" will use a remotely operated vehicle to investigate the wreckage later in July. No traces were, however, found of the missing Charles Glenn Jones, Larry O'Grady, Raymond Vincler, Darrik Seibold, Kai Hamik and Jeff Hathaway. The discovery of the wreckage is an instrumental piece in the Coast Guard investigation. The Coast Guard’s Marine Board of Investigation will hold a public hearing in August.

Four stowaways found after arrival of boxship from Hamburg in Montreal
ustoms officers discovered four stowaways hidden in a container aboard the "OOCL Montreal" on July 20, 2017, in the port of Montreal. They were transported by ambulance to the Santa Cabrini Hospital where their condition subsequently stabilized. Two of them suffered from dehydration and difficulty of breathing.
The four men in their thirties would come from Georgia. They had been in the container for at least a dozen days.
The container was full of cars. The container ship had left Hamburg in the evening of July 10 and arrived at the Montreal Gateway wharf in the evening of July 18. The containers were unloaded one by one when the customs officers randomly inspected one of them around 7.15 a.m.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), the Canada Border Services Agency and the port authorities were investigating the case.

The Port Authority of Valencia (PAV) is preparing to welcome the latest generation of mega container ships as it continues with its investment and modernization plans.
Namely, the Authority said that it would invest up to EUR 18 million to increase the maximum depth at its three terminals to 17 and 18 meters in an effort to accommodate 20,000 TEU-ships.
Expected to be finalized by the summer of 2018, the upgrades would include removing up to 690,000 m3 from the sites. The extracted land would be used in the phase 1 landfill of the new container terminal that will be located in the northern extension of the port of Valencia.
When completed, the upgraded port is set to feature 1,900 meters of dock and be capable of accommodating up to four mega container ships at the same time. worldmaritimenews...
