Would love to see them one day - do you think they will ever be public?

This picture may not look like much but if you zoom in you will see a large JCB shovel loader of approx 14-15t which was parked on the port side of one of the car decks. Bearing in mind that I took the picture while she had a 55 degree list then you realise that the shovel loader is actually hanging about 38m above your head as you clamber out onto the car deck. Worst of all is that it was hanging from 3 ratchet straps!!

Yes Barrowboy, unfortunately one of our vessels suffered some considerable damage to her main mast and port side exhaust system. No one was hurt though and we will be starting the repairs shortly....

Must have been an interest experience. Was it possible to use vessels own ballast pumps to play with the tanks(at a stage when vessel did not have such heavy list anymore), or was it all done with mobile units?

It Would be interesting to know when the cargo on those are lashed, to how much list lashings are expected to keep the cargo in place in real sea conditions?

I doubt it, a pile of JCBs on a jaunty angle has to be up there with the JFK assassination and Princess Marge rug munching in terms of highly sensitive piccys.

Potentially pulled as soon as she came off the anchorage. I cant find historic Notams to be able to tell...

Photo flights routinely get dispensation from the CAA to outside of the 'usual' rules ( rule 5) ...within a certain distance...

Anyone have a steer on the cause ?

Was the hull puncture by the JCB that's been quoted as flooding the decks the cause or result of the list ?

something else ?
