The vulture crack is not called for. They are all doing their best to make people safe and I would have expected someone with a marine background to be thankful that such ships as tugs and supply vessels are able to come to the assistance of seafarers in trouble. Let's just hope that the situation is resolved with on more people hurt.Come on Steve give the Engineers a break. They have managed to get one engine started. For a number of hours according to "Global Marine Traffic" site she has been making over 3 knots and pulling away from the coast. She has a vulture, sorry tug in close proximity along with a couple of rig supply boats.
Still I must admit a frightening time for all on board, here's hoping for a happy ending.
Sounds likely. Well done the engineers for getting the donks running again - Phew!. . . . .
Multiple engine failure in poor weather might suggest a fuel problem. Whatever, now reported that one of her (4) propulsion engines re-started. Hope that’s correct.
Thoughts very much with all those having to deal with such an urgent situation right now.
Yes, it goes with my stunning good looks!!
The AIS plot whilst immobilised and drifting shows that she came within 2 miles of the coast and a whisker away from grounding. Getting that first engine running was a very close call? This is what you call a "near-miss"?
It must have been terrifying for the passengers.
