@ Neil D,,, thanks for your post, a side/info which one does not hear, as most only go over how big and more big and such matters and other criterias often just brushed of or neglected.

I assume that there are that much barges in countries like USA that they would run out of names. call them Kirby 001 and 002 and so on if the owner is KIRBY is easy and easy to recognise.

In shipping generally is not much wisdom,, more like reaction to the failure to foresee. Once this is done, it is usually overshot to the extreme until it makes boom somewhere.
Same with the mega passenger vessels, all good and nice. But just imagine a situation a collision, the passegner vessel sinks with 5000 plus peoples aboard. Does really anyone think that they can be taken off from such a ship in time !! ??
I predict, that when that really one day happens,,the sinking of such a ship, that all those who were involved in the desgin/construction/approval and operation will say : we do not understand,, ,,,,,,

Well,,as per Equasis, 6 defies. 3 of them were MLC, the easy targets now of PSC,s
1 was for MARPOL VI, incinerator and 2 were for weathertight doors. As hatch covers and holds in general
on such bulkers do not have doors, it seems that Seaway is right,,just a little pushed higher as story.

Right on That, Salim,,I did that 3x times,,with reefer ships from Chile via Magellan and then passing
South Afrika into the Persian Gulf to Kuwait and Damman,,,  from the Magellan to S-Afrika, passing the Cape of good Hope no land at all,, the most deserted stretch of sea in terms of shipping lanes used on the surface of earth.

@ Mats,, nobody says that it did so far as I see/read it,, the issue came up in the beginning and the following posts are more about how and what is liquification then the issue that this ship sank because of it. Pretty much sure already not because of it as the two survivors stated cracks in decks and taking on water if I am not mistaken.

@ Tuomas,hmm I would think, under liquification of ore cargo it is not meant that it runs around like water. The moist of the cargo rises to the top of the cargo, which means that the top layers can move rather easy but the lower layers not. (make a test with sand and water in a bowl and move it, water will rise to the top, only when it stays resting the water sinks in) )This effect would trigger at hard rolling an easy shifting of the top layers of the cargo but not the lower layers and therefore a list would not disappear right away again as the vessel through the weight of the shifted cargo to one side would not roll back to the other side as far and ergo not moving the cargo back and subsequently increases the list to the side where the list is greater and keep listing the vessel more and more until it capsizes.  At least I picture it that way.

Normal iron ore is just plain normal mined ore

DRI : Driect Reduced Iron is also called sponge iron and can be subject to liquification while iron ore
itself is not

@ Pieter,,but not as sailor,, every sailor entering the US has to have two visas,,D visa for entering the US with a vessel and a C1 visa if joining a vessel in the US.
If for example you come as German tourist , you do not need a visa anymore (years back you needed a B1-B2)
However, if you come to the US as GERMAN sailor and want to join a vessel you need the C1/D.
It is paradox,as German I can fly to Miami, make 3 weeks vacation and go home,,no visa,, If I am the very
same person who needs or wants to join a ship I need the C1-D

Again,,every sailor,,never mind which nation needs a C1-D visa otherise they will not be allowed to enter the
US by plane and go on to the ship, or when they come with a ship,they ill not be permitted to enter the country and will be detained on the vessel.

Call the american embassy and ask them
12  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Maritime connector / Trump executive order on: March 08, 2017, 08:33:36 pm
The below is misleading.

It states that sailors from those countries listed and arrive with no visas are not able to enter the country. This is normal and regular praxis as NO sailor NEVER mind from which country can not enter the country without a valid visa. Normal they are detained on the ship, i.e. can not go ashore, but can freely move on the ship, but the vessel itself will be put under guard ,usually two people. But that is also done when a German/UK or any other country sailor does not have a visa !!!!

They should get at least their facts straight before posting !!!!

Trump’s new executive order gives headaches to seafarers

Crew members who are nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen shall be denied entry to US ports unless they hold a valid visa, according to the new executive order issued by US President Trump.

The new executive order “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” was issued on 6 March 2017 and it revokes and replaces the previously suspended EO on the subject.

The new EO directs that entry into the US for nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen shall be suspended for 90 days from 16 March 2017, whilst a worldwide review is carried out by the US Secretary of Homeland Security.

“If a vessel arrives at a U.S. port with crew from any of the six designated countries who do not have valid visas, those crew members will not be permitted to leave the vessel and it can be anticipated that the U.S. authorities may well order that armed guards be placed at the vessel’s gangway to prevent any such crew from departing the vessel,” US law firm Freehill Hogan & Mahar LLP said.

“In addition, if any crew member’s visa expires after March 16, the crew member must apply for a new visa.”

The new executive order follows the repeal of Trump’s previous order issued on January 27, 2017, that banned for 90 days any immigrant or nonimmigrant entry into the U.S. of foreign citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, and would have impacted vessels with crew members from those countries.

However, that E.O. was suspended by a Federal district court judge on February 3rd and his ruling was upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on February 9th.

I did not look it up timewise, but slowing down for a while and making a circle can also be simple a man over board manoeuvre in conjunction before or after with manual steering from the rudder engine room.
