Offices of Polaris Shipping raided in order to obtain information regarding loss
Police in South Korea have raided Polaris Shipping's offices in Seoul and Busan. Investigators were hoping to find new information concerning the cause of the loss of the "Stellar Daisy" which is presumed to have resulted in 22 fatalities. The dawn raids occurred on May 25 at Polaris Shipping's offices in Seoul and Busan. According to two Filipino seafarers, so far the only survivors after the accident, the dry bulk vessel's hull cracked which made the cargo displace and which subsequently lead to then sinking of the vessel. The "Stellar Daisy" was a rebuilt supertanker from 1993 of the type Very Large Ore Carrier (VLOC). The ship type has since been scrutinized, as it turned out that Polaris Shipping has discovered cracks in two of its other VLOC vessels. The South Korean carrier was now scrutinizing its entire fleet for defects and shortages. Polaris Shipping has also agreed to pay damages to the families of the seafarers who remain missing. There were eight South Koreans and 16 Filipinos on board the "Stellar Daisy" when it sank in the South Atlantic 2,300 nautical miles off Uruguay. The ship was headed from Brazil to China with 260,000 tons iron ore.

Nanny in trouble near Samson's Island
An ice escort for the "Nanny" turned into an SAR effort for the Canadian Coast Guard in Notre Dame Bay on May 25. The tanker was attempting to rendezvous with the Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker "George Pearkes" to negotiate passage to open waters. But the ship ran into difficultly near Samson’s Island and reached out to the CCG as it almost ran aground on Tickle Island. Conditions in the bay were sever. The ship was disabled earlier this year after sustaining rudder damage as a result of heavy ice in Notre Dame Bay. The Coastal Shipping Limited claimed the ship returned to Lewsiporte solely due to ice conditions after the "Nanny" and the "George Pearkes" were unable to rendezvous. The tanker was to depart again once the "George Pearkes" had negotiated a clear passage to Lewisporte. The company did not offer any explanation for the discrepancy in information, or whether the ship contained any cargo.
