Afraid this is incorrect; HMS SEVERN is in Portsmouth.

HMS TYNE is currently Queens South, whilst HMS FORTH is on Queens North. From the road above the docks, looking northwards, the FORTH would be behind the TYNE.

It cannot be KANDY 9004683 - according to her AIS she is currently in Sri Lanka.
I notice a number of media agencies are refering to the vessel as KANDY, (and Tanzania flag), but cannot see anything in the vicinity which matches or has a similar name.

There is a very interesting (or sad, depending on how you look at this) video of her being beached on instagram, via user: akansavas - https://www.instagram.com/akansavas/?hl=en
In my opinion, sad to see this vessel's demise, I caught a brief sight of her about 17 years ago inwinter lay-up at Toronto, whilst on a college trip to the CN Tower (which for me served as an excellent vantage point to see the ships in the port).

I made a comment 2 pages back on 10th May, but seems to be have been ignored whilst the argument of poor crewing etc. has carried on.

The AIS video has limitations, and does not give us a complete picture and therefore we can not draw conclusions on this alone. We only see the two 2 vessels in question, what it fails to show are other vessels which were in the area at the time, which could have contributed to the incident. What we can see is some strange manoeuvres by the Northern Jasper before the collision. This could suggest they were avoiding something - it could be that the crews were actually following the rule book to avoid another incident which then lead to this. We will not know for sure until we see a report of the accident.

I would also point out that there are now more ships afloat now, than there ever has been in the past, and with more congested seaways accidents are going to happen. Though, in terms of percentage of the fleet accidents have reduced - this can be attributed to better training and also modern technology. What we must do is make sure technology does not take over - something I fear has happened in this thread, as we look at just one part of the picture - the AIS plot!

The other issue is that today, news is more freely available, hence these kind of incidents enter the public domain quicker.
The Vessel Tracker video only shows the tracks of the vessels in question, it fails to show other "issues" in the region at the time (weather conditions, other vessels in the vicinity etc.), so lets stop jumping to conclusions - we (sat at desks, looking at a computer screens) do not know the factors involved which resulted in this unfortunate incident.

After a busy spell last year, the river is virtually empty at the moment, only with DONA AMELIA, a yacht on the moorings off Tolverne (old Smugglers Cottage).
Any movements are usually reported on the Falmouth Harbour website, see: http://www.falmouthport.co.uk/commercial/html/movement.php

Have a good time in Cornwall,

She was still named DISCOVERY when she left Falmouth last Friday - the attached was taken just before she left the bay.

The renaming must have been done during the voyage.

Made the trek this afternoon down to the yard. This appears to be the only evidence left of her at the yard.
