Ahoy,
The Scottish trawler "Harvester" was sunk after a collision with the supply vessel MS "Strilmøy" in the North Sea.
The collision occurred east of the Shetland Islands at about 7 a.m. Friday morning.
The entire crew of the Scottish trawler was rescued aboard another ship before sinking. The "Harvester" was carrying six crew from the British zone in the North Sea, to Peterhead.
No one on either the "Harvester" or the MS "Strilmøy" was injured and the Norwegian ship suffered only minor damage.
"It is just a matter of minor damage to the bow," press contact Nils A. Liaaen at Simon Møkster Shipping, the MS "Strilmøy"'s operator, told Aftenposten.no. The Norwegian ship is on the way to Stavanger where it will be inspected by classification society Det Norske Veritas and the shipping company.
"There will eventually be a maritime inquiry. The captain and the others on board must give evidence," Liaaen said.
The MS "Strilmøy" is owned by Simon Møkster Rederi and operated by Simon Møkster Shipping in Stavanger.
