Sailing vessel took in water
In the afternoon of Dec 16, 2015, the "Nordlys" of the foundation Fairtransport, being enroute from Brixham to Den Helder with a cargo of apple cider, suffered water ingress in the cargo hold while waiting for a tug off the port of Den Helder at anchor. Because it was feared that the own pump could not keep up with the flooding, the KNRM-station in Den Helder was requested for assistance. At that time the lifeboat "Royal Flush" from Harlingen, which was on trials, was about to enter the port of Den Helder for bunkering. Some crew members from Den Helder who were quick on scene together with a pump, were taken to the "Nordlys" by the "Royal Flush", while the skipper of the local lifeboat "Joke Dijkstra" was waiting for the rest of the crew. With the help of the Helder crewmembers the water ingress was quickly brought under control, before the "Joke Dijkstra" took the 20-m-ship in tow. The anchor was raised and then the "Nordlys" was pulled into the port of Den Helder. After the ordered tug arrived, the "Royal Flush" did not have to assist any longer and returned to Harlingen. AFter the towing line was taken over by the tug at the Moorman Bridge, also the "Joke Dijkstra" returned to her berth. Dutch report with photos: https://www.knrm.nl/waar-...

Ferry sidelined due to technical trouble
Both the "Bastø III" and the "Bastø IV" had to be sidelined on Dec 17, 2015, due to trouble, the first in Horten and the latter in Moss. The disruption was causing more than an hour waiting time on both sides of the Oslo Fjord as the route was only operated by three ferries. The "Bastø III" had an allision with the quay in Horten and sustained hull damage so that the ship had to remain berthed for surveys and repairs. The "Bastø IV" suffered technical trouble. Departures from Moss at 12:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. and from Horten at 1.15 p.m. were cancelled. It was unclear when the ferries would return to service. The "Bastø V" took over the sailings of the "Bastø III" for the time being.
