Tug or hospital ship damaged memorial
Either the USNS "Mercy" or a tug maneuvering it through a narrow channel may have struck the USS Arizona Memorial in Hawaii on May 27, 2015. At about 7:30 Aa.m. the tug was pushing the hospital ship past the memorial near Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam when either the tug or the "Mercy" struck a dock adjacent to the memorial. Initial reports indicated that a tugboat hit the Memorial, but an investigation was underway. White boat passenger traffic onto the memorial has to be suspended as the full extent of damage had yet to be assessed to ensure the safety of visitors. According to a statement from the National Park Service, one of the ships had allided with a dock used to disembark visitors to the memorial and the site will be closed for several days while the Navy and the park service asses the damage. Initial visual assessments showed that the dock was moved about 10 feet toward the Memorial. A small area of concrete was damaged where the dock’s ramp joined the Memorial. The dock’s ramps and railings were also damaged. The site will be closed for several days while the park service and the Navy asses the damage. Report with photo: news.usni.org/201...

 Million Trader  (Bulk Carrier)
4 hours ago by Timsen

Bulkcarrier finally sold
The "Million Trader", which had been reported as sold several times last winter, has finally found a buyer. The Japanese owner, Nisshin Shipping, only fetched $9.3m for the 11-year-old ship. In March 2015, the vessel was tipped as sold to Modion of Greece for around $10m. This sale was never finalised however. Tanker specialist Avin International, which has a fleet of some 20 tankers,was now tipped as the buyer of the ship. The company also has a four-year-old, slightly smaller bulk carrier in its fleet list. A year ago a sister ship of the "Million Trader" was sold for twice the price.
