Casino ship pulled off after 63 days
The "Lucky Seven" finally eased off Miramar beach, where it had been stuck for 63 days, after two tugs pulled it out about 400 meters towards the sea on Sep 18. In a synchronized operation that lasted two hours at high tide and watched by company officials, the ship finally moved off at 11.30 a.m. to be hauled near a sand bar in the river. The operation was carried oiut by the "Maria" with 60 tonnes bollard pull and the "Minakshi" with 20 tonnes bollard pull. It was difficult in rainy and stormy conditions. The winds picked up speed and the smaller tug had to hold the rope firmly while the other pulled it. The wire linking both tug even got entangled with the anchor and had to be freed. She could not moved further as the high tide was over. The range of the morning tide was 2,7 meters. The "Lucky Seven" will be shifted off the Aguada coast for repairs that may last a week. The difficult underwater repair once completed should strengthen it for the sea voyage to Jaigad, Maharashtra.

Fatal accident in lock
In the evening of Sep 18, 2017, at 9.45 p.m. the "Walter", 15 ts (EU-No.: 04803370), jointly with a container barge allided with a collision protection wire in the Uelzen lock of the Elbe-Side Canal at Esterholz. The ship was coming from Fallersleben and was destined to Hamburg. The 56-year old mastter lost connscience short before entering the lock so the wheelhouse was not lowered down upon entering the lock. The cabin slammed into the wire and was torn off and destroyed. The master was fatally injured. The alerted fire brigade freed him from the debris, but he died after initially having been resuscitated. Two other crew members who were on deck remained uninjured. The lock was closed for ship traffic during the night hours. The damaged tug was pulled out of the lock on Sep 19 at 9.45 a.m by another tug, and the lock could be reopened at 11 a.m. German reports with photos: www.nonstopnews.d... www.ndr.de/nachri... https://www.az-online.de/... www.feuerwehr-wie...
