 Isle Of Lewis  (Passenger Ship > Passenger Ro Ro Cargo Ship)

Aging ferry returns to service
The "Isle of Lewis" has returned to service on Apr 12 after having suffered problems with its starboard engine during a sailing from Stornoway to Ullapool on Apr 10. The ship made its way to Ullapool on the remaining port engine where it underwent an extensive inspection. The ferry had her problematic starboard main engine completely stripped down and rebuilt with new parts during a refit in Leith drydock recently. Four weeks ago the ship was laid up for the best part of a week after a major fault in her starboard propulsion unit - soon after the £700,000 overhaul. Essential spare parts had to be urgently flown over from Germany to Scotland and then a private plane was chartered to deliver the vital components to waiting engineers. The vessel is due to be replaced in 2013 by a £42m ferry currently under construction in Flensburg, Germany.

 Osakana  (General Cargo Ship)

Death of sailor reopens debate on closure of Kitsilano Coastguard station
The fatal distress call of the "Osakana" re-opened the debate on the closure of the Kitsilano Coastguard station. On Apr 11 shortly after 4 p.m., the Coastguard was called out to the "Osakana" and left from their station on Sea Island in Richmond,. It took them 20 minutes to get there. Paramedics were also called to assist, but it took them nearly 40 minutes to reach the cargo ship because they needed to be picked up by the police boat at the now vacant Kitsilano Coastguard station. In the past, paramedics were able to go with the Coastguard from the Kitsilano base instead of waiting to hitch a ride with police who — in this case — came all the way from the Main Street station. The Coastguard union said if the Kitsilano coast guard base was still pen, the response time would have been much faster.
