Ahoy,

Yes, according to Paris MoU, she has been reported regular, but often not been detentioned and with a lot of deficiencies, able to sail.

There must be hundreds getting passed the authorities. How many are given the authority to sail from one port to another 'FOR REPAIRS' & don't turn up? I have mentioned this to a MCA official here in GB, with the use of internet & port to port contact these vessels would have their chances to do a runner blocked a wee bit more than what is happening at present. He shrugged his shoulders!! (Cloud)

There will not be any polution coming from the ship as that what does leak will be diluted by the sea so it said on GB tv today.

Ahoy,

The French aren't that sure about it, for those who can read French,phosphoric acid,they think it can damage flora and fauna; there is a short video of the accident, to be seen with Windows Media Player or Real Player.

Thanks for that url Ruud - very interesting!

What's even more amazing is that I could still read the written report and understand most of the audio. It must be at least 15 years since I used any French language skills. Mind you, don't ask me to write in French - that has always been a "black art" to me! (Applause)
