Nkikkei Verde saved mariner after two month's ordeal
A 29-year-old man arrived in good condition to Honolulu on May 4, 2016, aboard a Coast Guard small boat after being rescued by the "Nikkei Verde" in the Southeastern Pacific Ocean and surviving a two-month ordeal at sea. A Coast Guard 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew from Station Honolulu safely transported the man from the "Nikkei Verde" offshore of Honolulu to the Coast Guard Base in the morning to meet awaiting EMS in stable condition. JRCC watchstanders in Honolulu received notification on Apr 26, from the master of the vessel, reporting while on their voyage to China his crew had located a man stranded at sea aboard a 23-foot skiff. They brought him aboard and requested medical advice and assistance to return the man to his home country. They were located about 2,150 miles southeast of Hilo, but still within the Coast Guard’s area of responsibility for search and rescue at the time of the report. A Coast Guard flight surgeon provided medical advice to the crew. Coast Guard officials worked with the "Nikkei Verde" to arrange a transfer near Honolulu and coordinated with the Colombian consul in San Francisco who arranged for transportation, Customs clearance, lodging, any hospital care, and an escort ahead of his arrival to Honolulu. According to the survivor he and three companions set out from Columbia more than two months earlier. Once the skiff’s engine became disabled they were adrift. He said he caught and ate fish and seagulls to stay alive. The three other men reportedly perished at sea. Their bodies were not aboard the skiff when located by Nikkei Verde’s crew; however, the survivor did surrender their passports to officials. The Coast Guard assisted in the man’s rescue but is not investigating the case as the circumstances fall outside Coast Guard purview. Report with photos and video: www.uscgnews.com/...

US aid ship docks at Port Sudan with food for Sudan war zones
PORT SUDAN - Dockers began unloading tens of thousands of tonnes of food from a US aid ship on Thursday destined for war-torn areas of Sudan, an AFP correspondent reported. The bulk carrier Liberty Grace docked in Port Sudan on the Red Sea coast with a cargo of 47,500 tonnes of sorghum, a staple food in Sudan. Dozens of stevedores were unloading the shipment onto waiting trucks. "It will take 14 days to unload" the entire shipment, said the ship's captain Peter Matesic. It was his third trip to Sudan with a cargo of food aid. A member of the crew said the vessel took 25 days to reach Port Sudan from Houston, Texas. The food aid organised by the US Agency for International Development and the World Food Programme was to be delivered to several war-torn areas of Sudan but mainly to Darfur. https://www.enca.com/afri...

A Suezmax oil tanker, Eurohope, which was arrested on April 25 in Singapore, has been released and has discharged the fuel oil cargo it was carrying at Vopak’s Sebarok terminal in Singapore Wednesday, according to trade sources and court documents seen by Platts Thursday.

Viking Cruises New Ship Christened in Greenwich
With the crack of a bottle of Aquavit, Viking Sea, the newest oceangoing ship from Viking Cruises, was christened Thursday night in Greenwich, U.K. Surrounded by family, passengers, media and invited guests, the ship's godmother, Karine Hagen, daughter of Viking Chairman Torstein Hagen and also Viking’s Senior Vice President, named Viking Sea and then cut the rope attached to the Aquavit bottle, which successfully smashed on the ship's bow. (Aquavit, a flavored Scandinavian spirit, is a favorite of Chairman Hagen's and was used for the ceremony rather than Champagne, which is traditionally used for ship christening ceremonies.) The ceremony was an understated affair, where family and tradition trumped glitz and showmanship. www.cruisecritic....

FIRE IN ABANDONED SHIP?
Report reaching the NewDawn says fire has been discovered in the office of the captain of the abandoned ship discovered on Tuesday evening in Robertsport, Grand Cape Mount County. State securities are said to have taken over the vessel marked “TAMAYA 1” since Wednesday. There are conflicting accounts about which country’s flag is being flown by the ship as earlier report had said it was allegedly carrying flag under Nigerian maritime. But according to the World Maritime News, it is a Panama-flagged product tanker. It is yet to be determined how the vessel came here and what its mission could be, leaving locals to be in fear since discovering the abandoned ship. Security personnel in Grand Cape Mount County said the cabin or captain’s office was in flames, but not much is being revealed yet as officials appear to be handling the issue with caution. Officials at the Liberia Maritime Authority or LMA in Monrovia were reportedly locked in a meeting Thursday about the situation, but as this paper went to press, it had not received any statement from the LMA. The army here has not made any official comment regarding the situation, but the Liberia National Police says officers have entered the vessel. The abandonment of the controversial vessel has since heightened security concerns among Liberians, particularly at a time citizens continue to seek delays in UN Peacekeepers’ plans to hand full security over to national authorities. Deputy Commissioner of Police Sam Collins said he could only affirm that officers have entered the vessel, when engaged by this paper concerning the fire. The Assistant Minister of Defense for Public Affairs David Dahn could not be reached despite several calls made to him by this paper. At the discovery of the vessel Wednesday, there were reports of three unknown men disembarking and fleeing in canoe. There has not yet been any report of crew members coming out of the vessel, and it is not known whether three men that allegedly disembarked the ship were the only occupants. The unknown vessel has been allegedly abandoned in Robertsport at a site leading to a mountain in Sendelhun Town of Grand Cape Mount County, western Liberia. World Maritime News says based on the ship’s latest AIS data dating to April 22, it was last underway toward the port of Dakar, Senegal. www.thenewdawnlib...
