MV Pasha Bulker
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The MV Pasha Bulker is a Panamax bulk carrier of 76,741 metric tons deadweight (DWT) operated by the Lauritzen Bulkers Shipping company and owned by Japanese Disponent Owners.[1][2] While waiting in the open ocean outside the harbour to load coal the Pasha Bulker ran aground during a major storm on 8 June 2007 on Nobbys Beach in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. It was refloated and moved to a safe location offshore on 2 July 2007 at 9:48 p.m. AEST before being towed to Japan for major repairs on 26 July 2007.

The Pasha Bulker was built in 2006 by Sasebo Heavy Industries Co., and sails under the flag of Panama as a flag of convenience. It is 225 m (738 ft) in length with a beam of 32.2 m (105.6 ft) and a cargo hold capacity (grain) of 90,911 cubic metres (3,210,492 cu ft).

If it loses fuel oil into the sea the consequences could be catastrophic. Ah what the hell, it takes a near disaster to bring out the best of people's humour.

Priceless!!!!!!!!!!!!!
