Man missing from ship
A 24-year-old sailor from Hyderabad has gone missing from the "Taif" in Somalia. Family members of N. Bharath Nagendra Manikanta lost contact with him on Jan 16, 2018, and have not heard from him since then. His family got a message from his friend on the ship that he is not to be found aboard. Bharath had studied B Tech (mechanical) from Narsapuram in West Godavari. He was recruited by West Line Ship Management Pvt Limited, Ahmedabad, through campus placement. He joined the "Taif" on November 11, 2017, after undergoing nine months training. The ship reportedly broke down in Somalia on December 25, 2017. Bharath, an engine cadet, had gone to his room on board the ship after finishing work on Jan 16, but did not report on duty the next day. His colleague Shiva went to check in Bharath's room, but he was no where on the ship. Shiva informed the officials concerned.

 Taku  (Navire � passager)
22 hours ago by Timsen

Ownership of ferry transferred to Dubai
The state of Alaksak has transferred ownership of the "Taku" to a Dubai-based company, and the vessel was expected to leave the state within a month. The Alaska Department of Transportation signed over ownership of the vessel to Jabal Al Lawz Trading Est on Jan 19. The company buys ships to refurbish for use in other countries or to sell for scrap. The mothballed ferry sold to the company for $171,000. A group of Portland, Oregon, investors had bid to buy the ferry for $300,000, but the deal fell through in November. KeyMar LLC in September placed the bid with plans to turn the vessel into a waterfront hotel and restaurant in Portland. When the group backed out of the deal, the state offered the ferry to the second and third highest bidders — one was the Dubai-based company. The new owner will be responsible for the docking fees starting in mid-February.

 Loch Riddon  (Navire � passager)

Heroic effort to save doomed fishermen of Nancy Glen
The crew of the "Loch Riddon" undertook a desperate attempt to rescue the skipper Duncan MacDougall, 46, and the Polish mariner Przemek Krawczyk of the capsized trawler "Nancy Glen - TT100“, 26,5 gt, on Jan 18, 2018, in Loch Fyne. The search for the two was now a recovery operation despite a heroic attempt to save them. They became trapped when the 40ft vessel overturned – with pal John Miller, 34, being rescued by a passing vessel and taken to hospital in Lochgilphead The staff on the CalMac ferry which had been enroute from Portavadie to Tarbert tied a cable to the capsized vessel in a bid to save the skipper and his deckhand. But the link severed before the salvage mission could begin, and the boat plunged into the 160 meter deep water. Travellers were warned to stand back because if the line broke, the recoil could kill someone. The only thing that could be seen of the "Nancy Glen" was the hull. Suddenly, the bow submerged, and only the stern could be seen. Then the line snapped and the boat disappeared. A crane was on its way to right the "Nancy Glen" shortly before it vanished. RNLI crews were scouring the loch on Jan 19. Another group was also combing the shore for clues as a major probe into the accident kicked off. The whole community of Tarbert and fishing community in Argyll and the Clyde were in a state of shock. A local church was opened to allow residents to pray for the missing pair’s families. The Church of Scotland and Free Church of Scotland were working closely with the Fishermen’s Mission in Argyll to support the community and the emergency services personnel involved in the search operation. Local minister Rev Robert McLeod, from the Free Church, paid his respects. Pupils at Tarbert Academy were offered support as news of the loch tragedy spread. Meanwhile, members of Tarbert Youth Group cancelled a planned session. The fate of the "Nancy Glen," recently fitted with a new crane, was likely to be the focus of a probe.
