Bulkcarried delivered to Navios Maritime Partners L.P.
Navios Maritime Partners L.P. announced on May 23, 2018, that it took delivery of the "Navios Symmetry" on May 21. The vessel was acquired for a price of US$11.0 million. The vessel was chartered out at a net rate of US$9375/d until July 2018. Based on the existing charter and the current rate environment (Clarksons’ one year time charter rate for panamax vessels as of 18 May 2018), the vessel was expected to generate approximately US$2.5 million of EBITDA for the first year, assuming maximum redelivery period from charterers, operating expenses approximating current operating costs and 360 revenue and cost days. The acquisition of the vessel was financed with cash on the balance sheet and US$7.15 million bank debt maturing in 2023 and bearing interest at LIBOR plus 300 bps per annum.

Dredger grounded at Burghead
The "Selkie", tasked with the specific job of clearing the entrances to Moray harbours has become stranded on a sandbank in Burghead on May 22, 2018. The crew of the 240-tonne dredger was forced to dump silt gathered in the bay overboard in order to lighten the vessel so it could float off again. It was the latest blow to rock the "Selkie" after its deployment was questioned, following confirmation the vessel only dredged for 71 days between January and the end of November 2017 and remained berthed for months. The vessel was not damaged during the unintentional grounding which occurred in aiming to maximise the quantity dredged from the harbour entrance before the tide dropped too much. But the dredger touched some ridges on the sandbank on its way out to the dump site over high water.

Fire out after three days
Firefighters completely put out the fire aboard the "Auto Banner" on May 24, three days after the blaze started on the vehicle carrier at the port of Incheon. The fire gutted about 1,500 used cars, sending black smoke from burning tires billowing into the sky over Incheon. A total of 2,438 used cars were on the ship when the blaze broke out in the morning of May 21 on deck 11. The blaze also gutted the decks 12 and 13. About 840 firefighters and some 240 fire trucks were mobilized for putting the fire out. Fire officials wre trying to determine the exact cause of the blaze and the amount of damage, but it would take at least a month to scrutinize the scene. Coast Guard officials have also interviewed shipping firm officials and crew members, including the ship's boatswain from Myanmar and obtained a statement that the fire started in the front of a car on the ship's 11th deck. Specific results of the investigation will be announced after a detailed scrutiny by a joint team of officials from the fire department and the National Forensic Service.

 Ocean Way  (Рыболовное судно)

Report: Crew was not prepared for flooding
The crew of the "Ocean Way" which sank off Shetland were not prepared for the scale of flooding they faced before they were forced to jump into the sea, an MAIB report has said. Five fishermen were rescued as the Lerwick-registered Ocean Way sank in March 2017 following hull damage. The Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) said onboard training and drills had not prepared the crew and urged "regular, realistic drills" for flooding. A lifeboat from Lerwick and the Coastguard helicopter had been sent to the scene to help. The fishermen jumped into the sea, less than a minute before the vessel sank. The crew of the "Ocean Way" could not have done a great deal more to save their vessel. However, post-event analysis has shown that there were other possible options to consider. These included potentially increasing the portable pumping effort by early embarkation of the Coastguard helicopter's salvage pump, or containment of the flood by shutting off the compartment. It remained uncertain that either of these actions would have saved the vessel. Onboard training and drills had not prepared the crew of "Ocean Way" for the scale of flooding they faced on the day of the accident. Flooding presents an immediate and potentially overwhelming risk to fishing vessels - it should be considered as dangerous as a fire. Industry guidance is clear that when a flood is detected, the crew's top priority must be to bring the situation under control ahead of other considerations. Every effort must be made to control the flood by maximising pumping, keeping suctions clear and considering all available options. The only way crews can be as prepared as possible to deal with foreseeable emergencies is to conduct regular, realistic drills. Use these as an opportunity to develop and then practise potential coping strategies in the event of major flooding.

Freighter disabled off Italian coast
The "Ades" went adrift due to an engine failure and a fault in the electrical system and was assisted by the Coast Guard until a tug towed it into the port of Gioia Tauro on May 22, 2018, at 3.50 p.m. The ship had sailed from Odessa and was underway towards Salerno when the damage occurred about 10 miles from the coast. The master of the ship, which had 12 crew members on board, reported the breakdown and the electrical fault. The ship was monitored by the Coast Guard who issued navigation warnings and alreted the MRCC in Rome. At night, as the ship had no lighting, a patrol boat illuminated it, making it visible to other ships. The Turkish owners finally requested the assistance of a tug. On May 23 at 7.40 p.m. the ship left port again and headed to Salerno. Italian report with photo: www.ansa.it/calab...

Owner to develop salvage plan
After the sinking of the "Reyes del Mar 2" that was moored in Concepción del Uruguay on May 10, the wreck must be removed by its owner and develop a salvage plan, which must be approved by the Préfecture. Once the required documentation is authorized, the port authority will accompany and monitor the work at the dock 7. Renato Alegua - who acquired the vessel on Nov 1, 2017 in a judicial auction - must take charge of the ship. Pollutants which could pose a threat for the environment had alread been removed by an authorized company as a preventive action. Complementary cleaning and environmental tasks were carried out in coordination with the Secretary of the Environment of Entre Ríos. The sinking did not cause significant problems in the docks, used only for mooring in an area that does not affect port operations. Spanish report with photos: https://www.elonce.com/se...

Ferry suffered electrical failure
The "Castella" with about 25 cars had to abort the voyage to Rindö and returned to Vaxholm on May 23, 2018, at 5.45 p.m. due to an electric failure. The fault caused the ramp on the ferry to fall down and forced the ship to turn back to port with 25 cars on board. There was no estimate how long the work to repair would take, but the company was working to make arrangements for the affected cars. Both in Vaxholm and Oskarshams cars were waiting in long queues.

Cog suffered engine failure
Two weeks after the "Kamper Kogge" set course for a two-month tour, she was back in her home port already on May 19, 2018. After a journey to Blankenberge, the trip was continued to Germany with a cargo from Kampen, Doesburg and Deventer on board that was donated by these cities for promotion. Because of a northern wind that would last all week, it was not possible to sail on this route, instead the auxiliary engines were used. Just before the piers at IJmuiden the starboard engine unfortunately failed. But the ship and its crew could safely reach the port of IJmuiden. The cause of the failure was investigated with support of the local KNRM workshop. It soon became clear that the damage could not be quickly fixed due to problems with the cooling water pump. It appeared that several gaskets had leaked and there was corrosion damage. It was decided to travel back to Kampen, arriving there in the afternoon of May 19. The starboard engine was sent to repairs to Emmeloord, and although the call at Bremerhaven had to be skipped, there was hope to visit the International Hanseatic Days in Rostock. In 1,5 weeks the foundation hoped to provide more clarity about the issue. Dutch report with photos: https://kampen.online/kamper-kogge-zet-alle-zeilen-bij-na-motorpech/

Grounded lifeboat refloated by fishing vessel
The "Hermann Onken" got stuck off the port of Fedderwardersiel when assisting a sailing yacht which had run aground after having encountered engine problems. The yacht could be refloated soon after with two rubber boats and headed to the port under sail when the "Hermann Onken" approached, which had previously been alerted. As the wind was good and the port nearby, the yacht crew refused further assistance, but the "Hermann Onken" got out of the fairway and stranded in shallow water. The DLRG boat "Butenland“ came to assist, but it failed to refloat the boat. The f/v "Seestern" from Fedderwardersiel finally managed to pull the lifeboat into deeper water again.

There have been meetings between the insurance company, the port authority and the company Storm Marine in Houvig - to remove the wreck. In the morning of May 23, divers went down to investigate the ship and detach the loose equipment to ensure the safety and the balance of the ship when it is lifted from a water depth of seven meters. In the morning of May 24 lifting balloons were attached to the hull, and once it has been brought to the surface, a mobile crane was pull it out of the water and place it on the dock. The weather was absolutely perfect for the task, so conditions could not be better. The lifeboat "Emile Robin" guarded the sinking site the whole nights and had projectors targeting the site to avoid the risk of anyone sailing into the wreck. In the morning, the "Emile Robin" was stood down. There has reportedly been no pollution of the water. The Danish tug "Helle“ (MMSI-No.: 219011224) was deployed to assist in the work at the sinking site too. The Dutch cargo m/v "Bothnia“ (IMO:9279408),which had been trapped within the oil boom after the sinking, could leave the port of Hvide Sande on May 23 at 4.20 p.m. and headed to Brake, where it arrived on May 24 at 10.30 a.m. Danish reports with photos: https://dagbladetringskjern.dk/hvidesande/Perkredes-haeves-klokken-14/artikel/332452 https://dagbladetringskjern.dk/hvidesande/Foerst-paa-pletten-De-sank-paa-faa-minutter/artikel/332398 https://hvidesande.nu/bomtrawler-kaentrede-i-indsejlingen-til-hvide-sande/

Sewol cradle being removed
In the port of Mokpo the removal of 66 steel beams at which the wreck of the "Sewol" had been righted on May 9 has commenced with the help of a mobile crane. In six steps she had been raised by 10 degrees, until she had reached a level of 94.5 degrees and was resting on even keel for the first time since the sinking, which was the ideal angle to balance the wreckage. After completion of the backup work, expectedly on June 10 another search for human remains may start. Three times the wreck had been combed so far, whereby the remains of four of the nine missing persons so far could be found. Only now the search parties can penetrate into the decks in the area of ​​the engine room and a space on deck 4. Broken hatches had prevented this so far. The Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries wants to start the search in mid-June and end in early August. At the earliest in July, further decisions on the future of the wreck should follow. This could be to preserve the ship in its present state or preservation of only part of the wreck. At present, experts' opinions were being collected about the technical feasibility as well as the expectations of relatives of the victims.

MSC asked customers for additional payment due to huge costs
While the "Maersk Honam" remained off Jebel Ali, Maersk Line 2M alliance partner Meditterranean Shipping Co (MSC) was asking customers with containers which were not destroyed in the blaze, to an additional $750 per TEU and $1,250 per FEU for additional transhipment and storage costs. In consideration of the important geographical deviation provoked by the salvage operations and of the consecutive extra handling/storage costs that will accrue at port of refuge. MSC will not be in position to carry the cargo to its destinations without collecting additional charges. Shippers who do not accept making the payment will be deemed that the voyage terminated in Jebel Ali and handed back to local representatives and will be subject to payment for storage and demurrage as per MSC's tariff. Customers were given time until May 24 6 p.m. to give their decision to MSC, after which time if no decision is received the voyage will be deemed terminated.

No suspicion that bulkcarrier was smuggling explosives
On May 21 Col. Turki al-Maliki, a spokesperson for the Saudi military coalition in Yemen, confirmed that the recent explosion aboard the "Ince Inebolu" was not caused by explosive materials smuggled aboard.
