The Australian Maritime Safety Authority has detained a chemical tanker off the Queensland coast due to alleged labour breaches.

AMSA officials are investigating claims of several serious breaches of the international maritime labour convention made by the crew of the Tintomara - which is flying the Liberian flag - and checking on the welfare of seafarers.

The 182 metre-long tanker has been anchored off the northern tip of South Trees Island, near Gladstone, for the past number of days.

An AMSA spokesperson confirmed they had detained the vessel for inspection and investigations.

"There's a number of allegations which we are looking at," the spokesperson told AAP.

The Gladstone Observer has reported members of the 26-person crew had complained of a bullying culture, non-payment of overtime, long
working hours and crew members losing weight due to the lack of food.

The Observer said the crew was made up of sailors from the Philippines, India and Bangladesh.

Tugboat crash behind fatal Queensland capsize[/b

A fishing boat that capsized off the north Queensland coast, killing its skipper, overturned in a collision with a tugboat, police believe.

Two crew, including one trapped in the upturned hull of the 17-metre vessel, were rescued off the coast of Bowen on Wednesday but the ship's skipper couldn't be revived.

Inspector Steve O'Connell believes they collided around 1.5 kilometres offshore near the Bowen Harbour.

"The investigation will focus on what caused these two vessels to collide under seemingly good conditions," he said.

Police reiterated praise for a quick-thinking diver who fed an underwater oxygen line to one of the men trapped in the upturned hull of the boat.

Inspector Steve O'Connell said two commercial divers jumped in the water, with one getting an oxygen line to the fisherman who was in an air pocket.
"Without them I think we might have had a different outcome for that man," he said.

"That diver was able to get an airline through with oxygen that we had on board from ambulance officers."

The trapped fisherman was able to make tapping noises on the underside of the hull which alerted divers to where he was.

He was eventually freed and taken to hospital conscious but groggy.

Maritime Safety Queensland will attempt to determine the circumstances of the capsize, while police divers have recovered boat fragments from the sea floor.

Tug operator Svitzer said the company was fully cooperating with authorities.

"Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to the family and friends of the deceased," a spokesman said.

"We are offering counselling and support to our employees, the family of the deceased as well as those injured on the fishing boat."

The two rescued men, believed to be in their 20s, were released from hospital on Wednesday night.

Mysterious abandoned ghost ship washes ashore in West Africa
An empty oil tanker mysteriously beached on Liberia has left authorities baffled as the government struggles to determine the fate of the crew.

Discovered on May 4 on a beach in Robertsport, in the country’s far north-west, the 63-metre tanker, Tamaya 1, was last seen on Aprill 22 after leaving its registered port in Panama.

With the vessel’s last known location far outside pirate waters, authorities are struggling to determine why the crew would have abandoned the ship.

The Liberian maritime authority could only speculate as to why the ship was empty, however evidence of a fire in the captain's quarters supported the theory of foul play.

"Our best bet is that the vessel’s owner might have gone broke and had no money to pay crew members,” a port authority spokeperson told the Liberian Daily Observer. "Therefore, the crew abandoned the ship."

The Liberian government has been criticised for taking more than two days to realise the massive ship had run aground on the Robertsport beach

By the time authorities established a perimeter the vessel had been looted and vandalised by locals.

Once highly sought by pirates, oil tankers have become less desirable targets due to the lowered costs of crude oil and the heavy naval presence off the African coast.

"He feels unsafe": Crew refuse to leave Glastone Harbour
A STALEMATE between a captain and his crew over safety on board the cape vessel Kanaris has grounded the ship in Gladstone Harbour for now.

International Transport Workers' Federation national coordinator Dean Summers said talks were underway to settle down the Filipino crew, but they didn't want to sail because they believe the captain is unsafe.

But the captain too is reportedly refusing to sail unless he gets private security.

"He feels unsafe," Mr Summers added.

One of the Filipino crew members died when the vessel was about 260 miles off the coast of Papua New Guinea.

It is believed the crew member was hit by a pulley in the head and died a short while after being hit.

His body was removed from the ship in Papua New Guinea and the Kanaris continued on to Gladstone.

Mr Summers said the crew were left traumatised.

"It was a grisly industrial accident, " he said.
