I was thinking about that but I'm not sure if it will make much of a discussion, then again I could be completely wrong!

Oh so you where one of those? Tough job indeed... You guys should get paid far lot more money than dockers that handle cranes...

How often did one of you guys found drugs when you proceeded to open a container? In the Barcelona port it was twice a month in average.

me never but it does happen its usually kept on the down low until it reaches its destination.  we found guns in the boot of a car imported from south africa once, turned out to be nothing insedious just an oversight by the importer (his private collection of mostly WWII weapons). i was only in the job for a year (it was my second job after high school over ten years ago now) then moved into an office job with a freight forwarder (mostly just data entry and help customs with freight inspections).

 

 As a freight forwarder we had a container filled with paint in 5l tins that was filled with ecstasy and paint. Apparently that was found by customs when they x-rayed the container.

 

and the pay , the pay was great no complaints from me about that. but those crane guys earn a mint. anyone that drives heavy machinery seems to be paid well. i guess its a lot of responsibility and the crane guys are stuck up there for a long time.

Some details on the "El Faro":

http://www.washingto...o-it/?tid=sm_fb

 

el-faro.jpg

 

This morning near Zeebrugge:

"A Dutch cargo ship has sunk following a collision with a tanker carrying liquid gas off the Belgian coast near Zeebrugge. It is not yet clear why the Flinterstar collided with the Al Oraiq, which was flying under the Marshall Islands flag. Twelve crew were knocked into the sea during the incident but all were rescued safely, broadcaster Nos said. According to Belgian officials, the 130-metre Flinterstar was not carrying any dangerous cargo at the time. 'There are traces of oil but not enough to pose any danger,' Nos quoted the official as saying. Flinter's director Bart Otto told ANP the Flinterstar is on a sandback 'with water up to the deck'. He said he was happy the crew had been rescued safely, although several have been taken to hospital. The tanker has been towed to Zeebrugge for repairs but is not thought to be leaking, news agency ANP said. A Dutch salvage vessel is on its way to the accident location. Shipping in the western part of the Westerschelde estuary has been disrupted, Nos said."

South Korea vs North Korea on Oct 1st (info released today):

"A South Korean ship collided with and damaged a North Korean vessel in early October, according to report from the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) published today. The article from DRPK state media and gives the name of the ships involved, the coordinates and claims the collision was not accidental. "At around 01:25 on October 1 a south Korean vessel deliberately rammed into Turubong-3, a boat belonging to the Foreign Trade Administration Bureau of North Hamgyong Province when it was conducting (a) fishing operation," the KCNA article reads. The report goes onto say there was significant damage to the North Korean fishing vessel, with five sailors wounded. It adds the South Korean ship did not remain at the scene of the collision, instead sailing away at "high speed." While maritime databases do not have any record of the DPRK vessel, the South Korean ship called "Highny" was passing through the waters to the east of the DPRK at the reported time of the collision. According to vessel tracking website Marine Traffic, the ship is a relatively large bulk cargo carrying vessel, managed by the Busan-based J Shipping Co Ltd. The company could not be reached for comment on the news at the time of publication. Historical tracking data shows the vessel did indeed pass near - though not exactly through - the coordinates given by the KCNA report. The 190-meter ship then continued on its journey. It is currently near Taiwan's Kaohsiung city. The article claims the South Korean ship broke maritime law when it left the damaged DPRK fishing ship, calling the act a "grave provocation" and demanding compensation. "The south Korean authorities should not pay lip-service to 'humanitarianism' but strictly investigate the vessel and prime movers, make apology for the piracy and pay proper compensation for the damage done to our crewmen and boat," the article adds. North Korean state media doesn't capitalize the "s" in "South Korea" or "n" in "North Korea" to reflect the idea that they are legitimately one country. Vessels weighing more than 300 tons are required to be fitted with tracking systems in part to prevent such collisions, and are required to have them switched on at all times. The KCNA article did not mention if the DPRK fishing ship was fitted with a tracking system, though it did mention the vessel was lighting up the surrounding area with "bright lights.""

 

No pics of the N. Korean fishing vessel. The South Korean:

The El Faro reminds me of the loss of the HMS Bounty replica in Hurricane Irene. I do hope there all okay.  :/

^^^ Pretty close Near Miss*.

Unless there's some special regulation at Mersey, the Ferry should've known better and passed astern of the tanker (it seems to be a chemical or oil tanker, not a gas tanker).

 

Usually Ferries crossing shipping lanes arrange the crossing by VHF with the ship's Master or Pilot (if on board).

Most of the times, some minor course change from one will be enough make everybody happy.

 

*I don't believe in the Near Miss concept, either it happened or it was avoided.

In cases like the one above (it seems that, despite the ferry's last min Port turn, if the tanker didn't went hard to Starboard they would crash), or the one bellow (speed up), one always wonder though... 

 

 

This was a actual famous hit from about 1y ago, most probably Hapag Lloyd not liking Maersk's world leadership ;):

Just thought I'd share this video, It is of Skagen Maersk in a storm from June 2008. You can see the ships deck flexing because of the stress effect from the storm, quite interesting.   :)

I've just tested it and, for the time being, it's still working.

It's a Global Ship Tracking (AIS) by fleetmon.
