An 80 metre tanker has been found today (24th March 2006) drifting, unmanned in the Gulf of Carpentaria. The name was painted out but when customs officers boarded the vessel they found her name was 'Jian Seng' but no details of her origins (over to you Ruud).

Could 'Jian Seng' be Cantonese for "Marie Celeste"?

Ahoy John,

There are many vessels started their name with Jian She's[then a number] and also a lot of Jiang's, but can't find her as Jian Seng[tanker] and my Cantonese nowadays isn't anymore what it once was(*))

Note: It looks like they've got again some illegal "down under" as happened 2 yrs ago with the High Aim Six from Taiwan

The latest news is the they found a whole lot of rice in the hold and she may have been used as a supply vessel for Asian fishing boats working "just outside" Australian waters

Local (Queensland ) Newspaper reports that the Vessel has been "scuttled"
No byline no mention of location!!
Par for the course when there is only one Statewide daily !!
