 Elbe Highway  (Cargo Ship)
8 hours ago by Timsen

Greenpeace protest ended - five persons arrested
Five people have been arrested after a Greenpeace protest saw activists climb aboard the "Elbe Highway" carrying VW diesel cars. Two men and a woman were apprehended at Sheerness port on Sep 21 after 40 people removed thousands of keys from cars in the port's import park. Two more women were arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass on Friday. They were being held in custody. Volkswagen said the keys had since been returned. On Sep 21 , police arrested a man, 51, from Epsom, Surrey, on suspicion of aggravated trespass. A woman, 36, from Stoke Newington, London, and a man, 46, from Cleveley, Oxfordshire, were also arrested under the Merchant Shipping Act 1995 on suspicion of entering a vessel. All three were bailed until Oct 19. The ship contained a variety of Volkswagen Group vehicles, including petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid models. It left Sheerness after the protest and was anchored off Margate before it returned on Sep 22 to dock at Sheerness. The group had wanted Volkswagen to agree to return the cars to Germany, but campaigners claimed they had forced the cargo ship to turn round on Sep 21. Peel Ports, which owns Sheerness port, confirmed Greenpeace protesters had illegally entered secure areas.

11 containers fell into Oakland's Outer Harbor
11 empty containers fell off the "MOL Maxim" into the Port of Oakland's Outer Harbor in the afternoon of Sep 21, 2017, in the area of berths 25 and 26, along the Outer Harbor Chanel, not far from the Bridge Toll Plaza. The ship had docked in the night in Middle Harbor. The Coast Guard received a report at 2:46 p.m. 10 of the containers sank, stretched in an area along the dock at a water depth of 50 feet. Divers were tasked with pinpointing the location of the submerged containers. A crane was to arrive around noon and begin the salvage of the containers. It could take all day, but the goal is to have all 11 containers back on the dock.Besides the Coast Guard, the Bar Pilots Association was notified of the incident so they were aware of the locations of the containers and could help guide vessel traffic. It was unclear what caused the containers to fall from the vessel, and the Coast Guard launched an investigation. The Port of Oakland did not antipate any disruptions of ship traffic.

 Lucky Seven  (Pilot Vessel)
18 hours ago by Timsen

Water and sand weighing down casino ship
With a respite in rainfall and the wind losing its force, conditions appeared suitable for towing out the "Lucky Seven" on its last lap, but tugging proved difficult with excess water and sand in it, weighing down the vessel from the aft side so it hardly move on Sep 21. The range of the high tide at 2.12 meters was high and suitable for the operation. The tugs managed to pull away the vessel by just around 10 metres. They were able to swing the vessel towards the channel but didn’t achieve much success as the weather was still rough and also one of the tugs was still having an engine problem and could not pull it to its 100 per cent capacity. On Sep 22, the tide will be slightly lower at 2.07 meters and go down further during the next few days. The salvor, AMS Marine Agency from Egypt, planned to resume the operation around noon. On Sep 18, the salvors had cleared a major hurdle after hauling the vessel to about 300 metres in the sea from its grounded position of 63 days. But just before noon, the high tide ebbed and the reduced water level brought the vessel to rest on a sand bar formation, forcing any further tugging of the vessel.

 High Courage  (Tankship)

Man injured in fall on tanker
A man aboard the "Hig hCourage" in the Atlantic Ocean was rescued by the NYPD on Sep 21, 2017, after he was injured in a fall 18 miles south of Brooklyn. An NYPD Aviation Unit responded immediately with aircraft and quickly arrived at the scene to render aid. The man had passed out after falling 35 feet on the ship. The man had also apparently been suffering shortness of breath, though it was not clear whether that happened before or after he fell. The man was assessed and found relatively stable at that point. Waiting for help by boat was not an option, so he was hoisted onto the helicopter and taken to Staten Island University Hospital where he was being treated for his injuries.

 Nordbay  (Tankship)
18 hours ago by Timsen

Report: Pilot and master faulted in allision
The National Transportation Safety Board has determined that the 2016 allision of the "Nordbay" on the Lower Mississippi River was caused by the pilot and the master not adequately assessing the risks of handling the ballasted vessel during high-river conditions with strong following currents while turning into the wind. ​On Feb. 2, 2016, at 10.13 p.m. the tanker was southbound on the Lower Mississippi River in New Orleans with a pilot on board when it allided with a dock and water intakes on the left descending bank. Less than an hour later, as the vessel maneuvered through another bend in the river while heading toward an anchorage, it allided with a wharf on the left descending bank. No pollution or injuries were reported. The dock, water intakes, the wharf, and the "Nordbay" sustained an estimated $6.4 million in total damage. ​In addition to the pilot and the master not adequately assessing the risks of handling the ballasted vessel during high-river conditions, the NTSB said in its Marine Accident Brief that another contributing factor was the bridge team’s poor situational awareness of the vessel’s position in the waterway. Contributing to the second allision was the master’s distraction from his duties while making a phone call. The full NTSB brief can be viewed here: https://www.ntsb.gov/inve...

Call at Dartmouth terminated due to stormy weather
The call of the "Seven Seas Explorer" at Dartmouth on Sep 21, 2017, was cut short due to bad weather. The vessel had been due to anchor off the mouth of the Dart, with passengers coming ashore by tender. Due to the bad weather and concerns about tendering guests from the ship into the river, the captain took the decision to terminate the visit to Dartmouth. The vessel remained at anchor for approximately an hour, in order to assess the situation. The ship instead headed out for a slow steam to its next port of call, Southampton, arrinving there in the morning of Sep 22. Report with photos: www.devonlive.com...

Two new lighter tankers deployed to sinking site
On Sep 23 the Greek tankers "Aegean Breeze 1" (IMO: 9314466) and the "Siros" (IMO: 6400343) were dispatched to the area near Salamina where the "Agia Zoni II" has sunk. They were expected to resume efforts to pump out the residual fuel from the wreck two days after the "Lassea" was obliged to stop as it emerged that its security certification had expired. Earlier this week the captain and first engineer of the "Lassea" were taken into custody after an inspection by customs and Coastguard authorities turned up significant quantities of fuel in the ship’s hold that was not legally accounted for.

A in collision with a yacht in Formentera
The "A" was in collision with a 10-meter-yacht in Formentera on Sep 20, 2017. The luxury yacht maneuvered at a speed of about six knots, when a boat approached and was warned with the horn and lighting by the "A" which in the end ended up causing a collision in the side. Earlier this month when sailing through Mallorca waters a customs patrol made a routine inspection to verify that the yacht had all permits in order. In the morning of Sep 22 the "A" berthed in Gibraltar.

Medevac off French coast
On Sep 21, 2017, at 4 p.m. the CROSS Gris Nez was alerted by the "Arpège" after a crew member had been injured aboard the ship which was located 50 nautical miles from the French coast. The CROSS immediately started a conference call with the Maritime Medical Advisory Center (CCMM) in Toulouse and the Maritime Medical Coordination (SCMM) in Le Havre to decide on the medical treatment of the fisherman. A medical evacuation was thus decided. As a result, a Dauphin helicopter of the French Navy, based in Le Touquet, was deployed and arrived at the fishing vessel at 4:50 p.m. The injured sailor was then hoisted and arrived at the hospital in Lille at 6 p.m.

Preparations for salvage getting ahead
The crew of the "Kea Trader" and the Dutch salvage company Ardent were carrying out the preliminary operations for the bail-out of the ship. To date, hold No. 4 has been partially inspected. 28 breaches were identified, of which 22 have been repaired. The teams planned to install 18 containers equipped with air bags in hold No. 5 in order to regain the buoyancy required for the bail-out. They will be packed on the crane barge "Jérôme", which arrived from Singapore start of September to participate in the salvage operations. The bailout of the ship was not envisaged until the end of October. The Briggs society, being in charge of pollution control operations, will conduct an exercise on the Durand Reef on sep 23. The crews of the tugs "Watoa" and "Pacific Titan" will deploy their floating oil barriers in particular to maintain their suitability for an intervention.

Barge crashed into bridge
The "Densimo", 2421 ts(EU-No.: 02327312), being bound from Duisburg to Amsterdam, allided with a bridge spanning the Rhine-Herne-Canal in the evening of Sep 21, 2017. The fire rescue was alerted to the accident site at the power station Herne at 8.45 p.m. The accomodation block of the unloaded barge was severely damaged, the wheelhouse destroyed and the ship disabled. As it was initially unclear whether someone had fallen into the canal, divers were called. But it turned out that the crew of four was uninjured. The disabled barge was pulled into a nearby canal port by a tug. The ship traffic on the canal was barred until Sep 22 at 1.30 a.m. The bridge suffered only slight damage.

Gas explosion killed one crew member, injured another
The "Bum Kang" suffered an explosion on Sep 22, 2017, at 1 a.m. The unloaded tanker was under way off Samcheok in the Gangwon Province. There were 11 crew members on board. One Indonesian crew member was killed and one Korean crew member suffered serious injures. The tanker, which was five miles off Samcheok, turned towards the port, arriving there at 2.25 a.m. under own power. The explosion didn’t cause a fire, only a lot of smoke. At the time of the explosion the tanker was degassing cargo tanks which caused the detonation by evaporating gas.

One dead, three rescued after research ship capsized in hurricane Maria
The US Coast Guard, Navy and British Royal Navy crews were searching on Sep 21, 2017, for the "Ferrel" that went missing near Vieques, Puerto Rico, on Sep 20, in the hurricane Maria. The ship with two adults and two children, had lost communications with Coast Guard watchstanders. The Coast Guard District Seven watchstanders initially received an alert via emergency position indicating radio beacon and then a distress call at 11.30 a.m. from the "Ferrel" stating they were disabled and adrift in six meter-waves and 100-knot winds. The Coast Guard lost contact with the vessel due to weather. An urgent marine information broadcast was issued immediately after the distress call. Coast Guard, Navy and British Royal Navy crews were conducting search operations with the following crews: - A Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater HC-130 Hercules airplane - A Coast Guard Fast Response Cutter - The USS Kearsarge - A Navy MH-60 helicopter - The Royal Fleet Auxiliary Mounts Bay with an SAR helicopter and an embarked Coast Guard Law Enforcement Detachment Team 101. In the early hours of the morning a Wildcat helicopter from RFA "Mounts Bay" spotted an upturned hull, debris, and a life raft in the water, 50 miles from the spot of the initial distress call. Three people were then seen clambering up on top of the capsized hull and waved for help. They were winched on to the Wildcat and flown to RFA "Mounts Bay" where they were treated for minor injuries, before being returned to Tortola. They were an 48 year old Dominican woman and her two 12 year old children. The fourth person aboard, the father, died and could not yet be recovered from the capsized wreck. The family had set sail from Tortola, in the British Virgin Islands, which was battered by Hurricane Irma less than two weeks ago, and was trying to reach St Lucia. The "Ferrel" was a former survey ship sued by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It had been decommissioned in 2002 and recently converted into a pleasure boat.

Temporary draft restriction
GAC - Thursday, September 21, 2017, Cape Canaveral, United States Due to shoaling in the main channel as a result of Hurricane Irma, the Canaveral Port Authority and the Canaveral Pilots Association are implementing a temporary draft restriction for all vessels calling on Port Canaveral. Effective immediately, the maximum allowable draft in the Port is 38’ (11.6M). Additionally, the Canaveral Port Authority Harbormaster office, in accordance with the Canaveral Pilots Association, reserve the right to require any vessels with a draft of over 36’ (11.0M) to a tide-restricted transit of the channel. (Note that these temporary restrictions are based on channel surveys performed by Land & Sea Surveying) The Canaveral Port Authority engaged the Army Corps of Engineers, Dutra Dredging, and Land & Sea Surveying prior to the arrival of Irma in the event that shoaling did occur. They have maintained contact ever since and are actively working with each group to expedite the correction of the channel deficiencies.
