Cargo ship fined with $500,000, banned for Delaware Bay dumping
An international cargo ship’s unreported dumping off Delaware’s coast has led to a $500,000 fine and a U.S. port ban for its environmental crime. The U.S. Coast Guard and federal authorities based in Delaware prosecuted the ship’s company for its illegal dumping of more than 30 tons of oily bilge water and waste sludge into the Delaware Bay, according to court documents. From January-September 2013, the Bulk Victory discharged at least 34 metric tons of oily bilge water and waste sludge. U.S. District Court Judge Gregory M. Sleet at sentencing Thursday in Wilmington, ordered Pacific & Atlantic Shipmanagers Inc. – incorporated in the Marshall Islands and headquartered in Greece – to pay the fine immediately. He also imposed a three-year probation, banning the offending ship from calling on any ports in the United States during that time.

Bad weather stymies activists' attempt to stop Syrian chemical weapons ship
An attempt by a group of activists, scientists and politicians to sail from Greece to reach the waters where a US container ship is in the process of neutralising part of Syria's chemical weapons stockpile has been thwarted by bad weather. The team of more than 30 wanted to use the trip, which began on Friday from Crete, to highlight their concerns about what they called a "dangerous precedent". But high waves forced them to turn back their flotilla yesterday, a turn of events that only heightened their concerns. The MV Cape Ray, the vessel rendering the chemicals inert via a process involving the chemicals being heated and mixed with water, sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite inside a titanium reactor, has already converted a significant proportion of the 600 tons on board since beginning its task earlier this month. The hazardous effluent is sent to other facilities to be destroyed. More at www.independent.c...

Bulk Grain Carrier Aground in Lake St. Claire
The Coast Guard informs it is responding to a 36,563 dwt 656-foot freighter that is hard aground in the downbound shipping channel of Lake St. Clair. Coast Guard Sector Detroit said that the motor vessel Federal Rideau, a Hong Kong-flagged vessel carrying 22,672 tons of wheat, had grounded on the downbownd channel in Lake St. Clair near the Detroit River. The vessel was en route to Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Marine inspectors from Coast Guard Sector Detroit Prevention Department responded to the grounding to assess the situation and determine the extent of any structural damage to the vessel. Initial reports indicate there is no resultant pollution and no injuries were reported. Coordinators at the Sector Detroit Command Center are in constant communication with the vessel’s crew and with responders aboard the ship. The cause of the grounding was determined to be a loss of steering caused by a motor coupling failure and repairs to the coupling have been completed. One attempt to refloat the freighter by two tugs was unsuccessful after one of the tugs experienced motor issues. Two more tugs are scheduled to arrive on scene Sunday night and attempt another refloating. Currently 580-feet of the grounded vessel is in the shipping channel but the channel is still open to traffic. www.marinelink.co...

Search for Flight MH370: Update
Australia's Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) says that a bathymetric survey of the 60,000km2 search area is well underway, with two vessels, the Australian-contracted Fugro Equator and the Chinese survey ship Zhu Kezhen, mapping the ocean floor, while the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) is coordinating this work. JACC explains that the bathymetric survey will provide crucial knowledge of the seafloor terrain to begin the actual underwater search. The ATSB is currently assessing tender documentation to engage a primary contractor to manage this complex operation. The underwater search is likely to commence in early September and take up to 12 months to complete. It will aim to locate the aircraft and any evidence (such as debris and the flight recorders) to assist the Malaysian investigation of the disappearance of MH370. www.marinelink.co...

Offshore Installation at Lerwick
A large steel oil storage tank to be installed west of Shetland as part of Premier’s development of the Solan field has arrived in Lerwick onboard a heavy-transport vessel Xiang Yun Kou, to make use of the port’s deep-water quays and anchorage. The vessel is berthed at Holmsgarth 5 and local engineering and logistics companies have been engaged to prepare the tank prior to it being taken to the field. Around 1 August, the Xiang Yon Kou will move to an anchorage in the port and ballast down for the tank to be floated off the deck of the vessel. The tank will then be transferred to tugs accompanying Thialf, the world’s largest semi-submersible crane vessel, which will install the tank. Dependent on weather conditions, the tank could remain at Lerwick for a short period of time before being towed to the field.

Gas leak forces closure of Houston Ship Channel
The Coast Guard says ammonia that leaked from a vessel forced the closure of the Houston Ship Channel and nearby bridges while sending four workers to a hospital. Coast Guard officials said in a release that the tanker Sombeke was docked at the Houston Ammonia Terminal on Friday evening when a gasket blew and anhydrous ammonia leaked. The tugboat Trigger was refueling the Sombeke when the leak occurred and four of its crewmembers were exposed and required hospitalization. The closure of the channel as well as the Interstate 610 and Beltway 8 bridges lasted about 90 minutes. Authorities had alerted nearby residents to remain in their homes. A hazardous materials team determined the leak was "minor." Anhydrous ammonia is a pungent gas that's used as a fertilizer.

Danish ferry lines up security on Norway routes
Stena Line and Fjord Line passengers face tighter security in light of terror alert. An extremist Syrian group may be planning to carry out a terrorist attack against Norway today (Monday), leading police to place armed guards at airports, train stations and borders. Stena Line operates the ferry route between Oslo in Norway and Frederikshavn in Jutland, and has announced that all passengers will go through tighter security checks of passports or driving licenses. Fjord Line, operating from Hirtshals, has also decided to increase baggage checks in Norwegian ports. DFDS seaways operates the Oslo ferry from Copenhagen, but neither Danish nor Norwegian authorities have demanded they take extraordinary security measures. Gert Jakobsen, head of communications at DFDS Seaways told BT that security in general is very high. "We have a permanent terror security system on ferries and in ports that was introduced in 2004. It means that all passengers will go through control. No-one boards our ships without having their identity verified." He added that the crew was told to be extra alert and report any suspicious behaviour. Source : Copenhagen Post

Tanker Carrying Kurdish Oil Arrives on Houston anchorage
July 25 (Bloomberg) — A ship carrying crude from Iraq’s Kurdistan region is off the coast of Texas, with the future of the oil aboard murky because of uncertainty over who has the right to sell it. The United Kalavryta is operated by Unicom Management Services Ltd., said Andy Kendrick, a spokesman for the U.S. Coast Guard. It’s scheduled to dock in Galveston, Texas, tomorrow, according to ship-tracking data compiled by Bloomberg. Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government is seeking to sell oil from its territory and claim revenues to help finance its effort for further independence from the national government. Officials in Baghdad have said the country’s oil revenues belong to the central government. “We are aware there is a tanker off the coast of Florida currently, but our policy here has not changed — Iraq’s energy resources belong to all of the Iraqi people,” Marie Harf, a spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department, told reporters today in Washington.

Costa Concordia Arrives Safely in Genoa-Voltri, Salvage Operation to cost 1.5 billion Euros
GENOA, Italy, July 27 (Reuters) – The wrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner limped into its last port on Sunday, when it was towed to the northern Italian city of Genoa to be broken up for scrap, two-and-a-half years after running aground and sinking with the loss of 32 lives. After a four-day journey from the Tuscan island of Giglio, where it sank on Jan. 13, 2012, the 114,500-tonne hulk was manoeuvered into place and secured at the conclusion of one of the largest and most complex maritime salvages ever attempted. Prime Minister Matteo Renzi flew to Genoa to hail the completion of the operation which restored some pride to Italy after a disaster that was widely interpreted as a national humiliation as well as a human tragedy. After hours of preparation, dockworkers fixed the wreck in place in the industrial port of Voltri, just outside the main harbour in Genoa. It will be dismantled by a consortium led by Italian engineering group Saipem and Genoa-based San Giorgio del Porto in an operation expected to cost 100 million euros and take up to two years. The overall salvage effort is expected to cost Carnival Corp , owner of the ship’s operator, Costa Cruises and its insurers more than 1.5 billion euros ($2.14 billion).

Israeli transport minister proposes offshore port for Gaza
Cairo: Israel’s transport minister has proposed building an offshore port for Gaza. The suggestion follows on from recent calls by the Qatari foreign minister to build a port in Gaza to help alleviate the suffering there. Israel’s transportation minister Yisrael Katz has said Gaza should have its own airport and port. “We should open the Rafiah crossing between Gaza and Egypt for an intermediate period, for goods and people to pass through, with supervision,” he said. “At the same time, we should initiate the creation of an artificial island at sea, under international supervision and with international funding, roughly 4.5 km off the Gaza coast,” he continued. A model for the project has already been created, he said. “On the island there will be a port, a power plant and water treatment plant, and eventually an airport. There could be hotels there, too. The island would be connected to Gaza by a bridge, which would have a security checkpoint in the centre. “[The checkpoint] would be under full international control for 100 years, and under Israeli control at sea,” he suggested. “The Palestinians would be part of operating the port and airport, and staffing the hotels.” [23/07/14]

Grain Export Terminal Shut in U.S. Dispute
Mitsui's United Grain Corp has shut its export terminal at the Port of Vancouver - among the largest on the U.S. West Coast - because the state government withdrew grain inspectors amid an ongoing labor dispute, an export shippers' group said on Friday, July 25. "We've managed to get one ship out this week after getting waivers from the customer and USDA, but that's an exceptional case - and costly," said Pat McCormick, spokesman for export trade group Pacific Northwest Grain Handlers Association, which includes United Grain Corp (UGC), a unit of Japanese trading company Mitsui. The outbound vessel held 2 million bushels of grain. The shutdown comes as the United States braces for a bumper grain harvest with prices languishing. Nearly half of U.S. wheat exports and about a quarter of all grain and oilseed exports exit the country via the Pacific Northwest. The Vancouver facility is one of nine bulk grain terminals in the region.

Delta Charters Jones Act Tanker
Monroe Energy, the Delta subsidiary that runs the airline's 165,000 barrel per day (bpd) Trainer refinery, has time-chartered the 330,000-barrel MR Seabulk Arctic, a Jones Act vessel built in 1998, for two years beginning in August, according to sources familiar with the deal. A Delta spokesman confirmed the charter but provided no further details. It has an option to switch to a newly build ship in 2016 for an additional three years. Seabulk Tankers, an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Seacor Holdings that owns the Seabulk Arctic, has three tankers on order from General Dynamics's NASSCO shipyard in San Diego, the first of which will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2016. The ship was previously chartered to leading U.S. refiner Valero Energy, which sources say has moved to reduce its exposure to the Jones Act shipping market, a once-quiet niche that has surged in recent years on growing demand to ship Texas shale crude to East Coast refiners.

Strike canned, Sydney ferries run as usual
Sydney ferries will operate normally Monday morning(July 28) after unionised staff cancelled a planned strike. The members of three unions, the Australian Maritime Officers Union, Maritime Union of Australia and Australian Institute of Marine and Power Engineers, were to stop work during Monday morning peak hours to discuss conditions offered in a new enterprise bargaining agreement. But they have now decided not to go through with industrial action. "There is a very good offer on the table and we would like to finalise this agreement and get back to business," Harbour City Ferries boss Steffen Faurby said. "The service disruption to our customers is not productive and we are pleased they have withdrawn the action." Ferry workers have base salaries between $80,000 and $115,000, 10 weeks of annual leave, 12.5 per cent superannuation, a 10.5 per cent pay increase over four years and can't be forced to take redundancies during the next two years. More than 30 meetings have been held between HCF, a joint venture of Transdev and Transfield Services, and union representatives during the eight months of negotiation.

Siemens Builds The First European Onshore Power Supply For Cruise Ships
The Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) has commissioned Siemens to build a turnkey onshore power supply at the Hamburg Altona cruise terminal. The system will supply electricity to cruise ships of all common sizes and electrical system designs, allowing them to turn off their own diesel generators and reduce harmful emissions during their lay days. The first European onshore power supply system of this type has a capacity of 12 megavolt amperes (MVA) and works with a patented, mobile robot arm designed specifically for the tidal range. The heart of the system is a frequency converter with control software that adjusts the frequency of the local distribution grid to the ship’s electrical system. The scope of supply for Siemens, in its capacity as general contractor, includes the medium and low voltage switchgears, the transformers, the fire safety system and the building’s air conditioning and ventilation system. Commissioning is scheduled for the spring of 2015. The order volume will run to around €8.5 million. The onshore power supply system from Siemens meets the required international standards IEC/ISO/IEEE 80005-1 (cable connection between shore and ship on the medium voltage side) and IEC 62613-2 (connectors and sockets). The modular system from Siemens covers all power ranges required in the shipping industry and is suitable for the world’s common ship frequencies (50 and 60 Hertz) as well as all necessary voltage levels for shipping. Voltages of 6 or 10 kilovolts (kV) are provided in the 50-Hertz range and 6.6 or 11 kV in the 60-Hertz range. In principle, for example, 50 Hertz AC current is converted to 60 Hertz AC current during frequency conversion. Reference: siemens.com

Costa Concordia passed halfway mark
Costa Concordia, having passed the halfway point on its 190nm journey, is expected to arrive in the port of Genoa on Saturday night. The Italian civil protection service said the convoy accompanying the former cruise ship reached the 100nm mark at 08.00 local time on Friday, July 25th. By late morning it was off the island of Gorgona in the Ligurian Sea. Thanks to favourable currents and light winds, the convoy was keeping time, the protection service said, with arrival off Genoa expected some time on Saturday night. Italian website the Medi Telegraph reported Italian expert Admiral Stefano Tortora, who is aboard Costa Concordia, as saying that the convoy could even arrive ahead of time. On arrival the disabled vessel will not be able to go straight to its berth at the port's Voltri Terminal Europa, however. That operation, which will involve the use of eight harbour tugs and further adjustments to Costa Concordia's draught, is expected to take between six and eight hours. Meanwhile, air surveillance and regular sampling of seawater in the vicinity of the wreck has found no evidence of pollution leakage.

Kenyan Police Kill Two Men Suspected of Plotting Ferry Attack
July 25 (Reuters) – Kenyan police said on Friday they shot and killed two armed men suspected of planning an attack on a ferry in the port city of Mombasa after one of them tried to hurl a grenade at approaching police. Mombasa and the coastal region has been struck by a series of attacks that have killed dozens of people in recent months. The worst shootings have been on the north coast, but Mombasa has been hit by several bomb attacks. Somalia’s al Shabaab Islamist group has claimed many attacks, but the government has blamed some of the north coast raids on local political networks, leaving many Kenyans confused about who is responsible and angry at security failures. Police believe the two killed on Friday might have been planning to attack the busy Likoni ferry that plies the channel that lies between Mombasa and the south coast. The men were travelling in a public minibus heading towards the ferry around the peak time of 6 p.m. (1500 GMT) when they were approached by police. “When they sensed police had cornered them, one drew a grenade and tried to detonate it, but he was shot and killed before he could do so. The other had a pistol and was also killed,” Mombasa County Commissioner Nelson Marwa said. “We think they may have been planning to attack passengers on the ferry,” he told journalists at the scene. The Likoni ferry transports thousands of passengers daily from their homes on the south coast to Mombasa for work and back. It is also the main route for tourists heading to and from the airport to hotels on the popular southern beaches. Several Western nations have warned citizens about travel to some areas of Kenya, including Mombasa. The attacks combined with advisories have hammered the once-vibrant coastal tourist industry. “Today there would have been a tragedy on this ferry had the police not noticed these suspects and acted quickly. They have saved many lives,” Emmanuel Kimoto, a ferry guard, told Reuters. (Writing by Edmund Blair; Editing by Sonya Hepinstall)

Sri Lanka: East Container Terminal Project on Right Track
24/07/2014 The construction of Sri Lanka Ports Authority owned single berth of the Colombo Port Expansion Project (CPEP) is known as the East Container Terminal (ECT) and with the completion of its Phase I soon, it is expected to cater the shortfall in the capacity of container handling in the Port of Colombo. The quay wall of the ECT is designed to allow the container vessels of 230,000 DWT to berth. The quay is designed to support a 65t ship to shore crane (STS), a 30 meter rail span, a back reach area and roads. This project consists of two phases of the harbour infrastructure works such as construction of breakwaters, dredging for new harbour basin and navigation channel and rerouting of crude oil pipe line. The other component includes construction of terminals and other related services. Source: Sri Lanka Ports Authority

Dock workers issue two strike notices
25/07/2014 The giant Dock Workers Union has issued a double strike notice for both the Kenya Ports Authority workers and the Kenya Ferry Services workers. The Union issued a 21-day strike notice on behalf of the ferry workers over the alleged failure by the government to allocate revenue to the KFS. “The 65 per cent of the anticipated revenue expected from the Ministry of Transport is the cause of the trade dispute because the Ministry has failed to remit its share as expected therefore rendering the KFS financial position unsustainable,” DWU general secretary Simon Sang said in a letter addressed to Labour Secretary Kazungu Kambi dated July 22. Two months ago, KFS managing director Musa Hassan denied that the government has failed to remit allocation to the company as alleged by Sang. Musa said it is the remitted money that has been running the ferries and helped reconstruct the Mtongwe ferry rump and additional rumps and the Likoni Ferry channel. Yesterday, Sang also issued a strike notice against the KPA accusing the management of trying to ‘sell’ the port. In a press release sent to media houses, Sang said KPA chairman Danson Mungatana has been ‘fixed’ by the management into ‘selling’ the port. Mungatana and Sang have differed over the port Community Charter that was launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta about a month ago. While Mungatana insists the union was involved in the talks to come up with the charter, Sang maintains that the only meeting they were involved in was to discuss the Wajibika Project which, he maintains, was more of sensitization on the need to improve performance. “The KPA chairman does not understand the dynamics of maritime and shipping business. In my view he has been fixed by the Management of KPA,” said Sang in the statement. He further challenged Mungatana to produce evidence that the union was consulted over the charter. The union has since appointed a professional to come up with an alternative charter with views of different stakeholders including the Mombasa, Kwale and Kilifi counties. “However, whether the Chairman understands it or not, whether he likes it or not, the Union’s stand and that of the Coast community is that the port will be privatized over our dead bodies,” Sang said. Sang also accused Mungatana of inciting workers against the union. He said workers will make a resolution on whether to continue working with Mungatana after 21 days from yesterday. “This port requires concerted efforts,” he said. He said they have given Mungatana 21 days to ‘make up his mind’, failure to which they will take industrial action. Source: The Star

Evergreen re-starts REX 3/ARC 2 Far East-southern Red Sea service
Evergreen Line is to resume services of direct connections to Far East-Southern Red Sea in a joint service with CMA CGM, UASC and CSCL on their REX 3/ARC 2 service following its suspension of services three years ago. The re-branded ARC service will deploy seven vessels downsizing from the 6,000-7,000 TEU range to vessels of 4,250 TEU. ARC turns in 49 days and rotates through Xiamen, Shenzhen-Yantian, Shenzhen-Shekou, Port Kelang, Djibouti, Jeddah, Port Sudan, Djibouti, Port Kelang and back to Xiamen. The first sailing from Xiamen was scheduled for July 24 deploying the 4,404-TEU CMA CGM Amber, according to Alphaliner. The reviving of the service will complement its existing Far East-Red Sea service (FRS) jointly operated with Cosco to focus on northern Red Sea ports. Evergreen's closure of its 'REX 3/SRS 2' service in May this year will be compensated by its new slot arrangement with UASC allowing it direct connections to Far East-southern Red Sea.

MPT saves cargo vessel M V Caravel Pride with three tugs from stranding
Caravel Pride, an Indian flagship cargo vessel, was on its journey back from Western India Shipyard's dry dock after repairs, when the container vessel ran into trouble with its engine failing mid-sea. At around 6.30pm on July 16, 2014, when the vessel's captain was asked to drop anchor, the ship was unable to stabilize due to rough weather. The vessel was finally saved from damage when the Mormugao Port Trust (MPT) intervened. Caravel Pride was docked at Western India Shipyard for the last three months for repairs. On its way back to its destination after repairs, an hour into its journey, the engine stopped abruptly. The vessel started drifting towards the shore, where it ran the risk of damage in the rough weather if it hit some earth in shallow water. "The control tower was monitoring the movement of the ship. Normally, when the anchor is dropped, the ship stabilizes, which did not happen in this case. We were alarmed and tied a rope, before abandoning the operations for the next day as it was already late in the day. The following day on July 17, we were unable to pull it despite mobilizing three tugs due to rough seas and heavy swell," chairman of MPT, P Mara Pandiyan, said. The matter was then reported to the ministry of shipping and DG shipping and assistance was sought. DG shipping promptly dispatched the emergency towing vessel (ETV) SCI 03 to carry out the operation, which arrived at Mormugao harbour on July 19. "The salvaging operations, headed by SCI 03 and supported by the three MPT tugs, began on the morning of July 20. A team of marine officers and the DG shipping officials monitored the operations with the help of the signal station facility. The salvage operation faced tough challenges due to extremely bad weather and frequent spells of heavy rain showers accompanied by squally wind conditions," Pandiyan said. After fighting the adverse weather and high rising waves for three hours, SCI 03 successfully passed a towing wire. After a challenging and strenuous operation, the port pilots along with the MPT tugs finally berthed the M V Caravel Pride safely at Berth No.9. The vessel will now be docked for another two weeks of repairs.Source : indiatimes

 Maersk Batur  (Frachtschiff)

Report:Container ship towed after near miss
A container ship which lost power while navigating Otago Harbour was pulled into deeper water by a tug - having had a near miss with the shipping channel's sandbank. In April, the 223m-long container ship Maersk Batur lost all power shortly after departing Port Chalmers, which prompted Port Otago's tugs Otago and Rangi to return to the ship and tow it back into deeper water. The incident was, by regulation, reported by Port Otago to Maritime New Zealand (MNZ), the Transport Accident Investigation Commission (TAIC) and Otago's harbour master. MNZ has, since February, suspended publishing its monthly incident summaries, as it considers privacy issues. The Otago Harbour near miss came to light after it was disclosed in parliamentary question time, when Transport Minister Gerry Brownlee released reports of 50 ship-related collisions, or near misses, to Green Party MP Gareth Hughes. Mr Hughes was criticising the Government for playing down recent shipping incidents in the wake of the 236m container ship Rena grounding, the subsequent oil clean-up and removal of the wreck from Astrolabe Reef, off Tauranga. Included in the reports was a five-minute grounding of a 177m Singaporean cargo ship off New Plymouth's coast in May, which the master had not reported until five days after the incident. Maersk Batur was reported as having had ''possible contact'' with sand at the edge of the channel in Otago Harbour. Maersk NZ operations manager Stuart Jennings said he understood there had been a ''fuel flow failure'' aboard Maersk Batur while it was in the channel and the engine ''cut out'', leading to the vessel's master dropping anchor and restarting the engine, all of which had taken only a ''short time'', he said. ''There were safety protocols of the port and ship in place which were enacted ... It was concluded there was no danger.'' The Singapore-registered 223m-long, 43,000 tonne-plus Maersk Batur is a regular visitor to Port Chalmers, and global shipping giant Maersk is the port's largest customer. Port Otago chief executive Geoff Plunket said Port Otago's 100% owner, the Otago Regional Council, had been informed after the mandatory reporting to MNZ, the TAIC and Otago's harbour master. None of the agencies had undertaken a formal investigation. Port Otago's own investigation was completed and found ''no issues'' for the port company, he said. He declined to release the findings, saying further comment had to come from Maersk. The tugs Otago and Rangi accompanied Maersk Batur when it departed Port Chalmers, and they left the vessel several hundred metres from the port, as planned, Mr Plunket said. However, they were called back and were ''immediately able to assist'' in towing Maersk Batur to deeper water. The MNZ incident report said the ship, which had a Port Otago pilot on board, suffered ''a temporary power failure'', causing its bow to turn towards the channel edge, but with a tug's assistance the ship was moved to ''safe water''. ''The master of the ship reported possible contact of [the] ship's bow with [the] soft sand edge of the channel,'' MNZ said. The cause was reported as a ''fuel flow meter'' issue, which caused the main engine and generator to become stuck. Mr Plunket said there had been ''no serious incidents'' with vessels, such as a navigational marker or the channel being struck, in Otago Harbour in the past two years MNZ said it carried out a ''port state control'' inspection of Maersk Batur in Tauranga and a diver inspected the vessel in Auckland. No damage was found. Source: Otago Daily Times

The 60 foot long fishing vessel Endeavor suffered water ingress near Yaquina Bay, Oregon. The fishing vessel had been struck by a large swell the night before which caused a leak in the vessel. The crew had discovered flooding in the engine room and contacted the Coast Guard requesting assistance. The Coast Guard dispatched the 47-foot long Motor Life Boat to the scene. The Coast Guard was able to pass two dewatering pumps to the fishing vessel. With the pumps, the flooding was brought under control. The Motor Life Boat then escorted the Endeavor back to port. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
