Drifting ship towed to Algeciras
The "Manuela E" suffered engine trouble off Estrecho on Dec 17, 2017, after having left Gibraltar around 4 a.m., and requested help. It was adrift about 2,5 miles from from Punta Acebuche (Algeciras). The SAR ship "Salvamar Arcturus" (MMSI: 225986507) was deployed by Salvamento Marítimo from Tarifa and initially stopped the drift by taking the ship in tow. Later the tow was transerred onto the larger salvage tug "Luz de Mar" (IMO: 9320104) which pulled the vessel to the port of Algeciras where it was berthed at 12.30 p.m. She sailed again after repairs on Dec 21 at 5 p.m., next being bound to Cadiz, ETA Dec 31.Upload News
