In these situations what happens to the ships crew?

Are they now out of work and looking for a new job or will they just get a transfer to another ship ?

[QUOTE=IBWET;183143] We saw a container a few years back floating off arran,they float just under the surface (or this one was), hitting it with a rib,the least you would do is lose your gearcase and put everyone in the water.

This happens very often in Bay of Biscay I am told.

I have read in our paper that the police are clearing away people from the area.
What is the legal difference between loitering and beach combing.

If I lived in or off Lyme Bay, I would be appaled at what has happened. I would be gunning for the clown who diverted this disaster onto my patch.
I would also be gunning for the clown who left it go to sea let alone with with impending storms, I would be gunning for the people who are supposed to have fixed it in Koria or where ever.

Can anyone please tell me when a Politician or Gov agent will take responsibilty for their actions.
At least it is British reg, isnt it, surely there will be Justice right? I mean does anyone live in Lyme Bay, what has Greenpeace have to say about it?

Am I missing a part of this Jig saw or is it all for the birds (Please forgive that black pun)

Those bikes won't be worth using for anything but parts after a dunking. BMW bike finish quality has gone down the toilet since about 1990 and they'll corrode like buggery-IF the ECU's have survived.

Virtually nothing in the automotive world is worth having after a prolonged dunking in salt water. Nor is anything else if it had electricity connected at the time and left connected for any length of time afterwards.

Won't stop people flogging them on though to unsuspecting buyers.

Just watch E Bay go crazy now.

The only way they'll be able to sell them is in bits. There's no way they'll be able to register them as the VIN numbers will be traced and they'll get knacked for non declaration of wreck. BMW know exactly what's in those containers down to the key numbers.
