1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Rosaire Desgagnes Incident and drydock! on: August 11, 2008, 01:50:52 pm
Jean, the Terry Fox does travel up north contrary to what I said earlier, Dean Porter at St John's, Newfoundland, confirmed this for me. The company doing the repairs on the Rosaire A Desgagnes is Mount Royal Walsh, I will go back a get an update on how the repairs are advancing.

cheers,

Kent

I have photos that I took yesterday at sec 44 Port de Montreal, I know the Terry Fox was at Port Alfred this winter and then Quebec City, after that the Lower St Lawrence, and the Gulf.

Like I said I could be wrong but it did not look like a collision as the bow and other parts were not touched.

Did you see the photos?.

The Sichem Aneline is still stranded and not towed to port, like the story says. The vessel is grounded by the forward end, and in my opinion if not unloaded or moved she could suffer hull damage, there is a tug standing by, and a pilot on board the Sichem Aneline. No new developments are available at this time.

I believe the food was delivered, according to the news report, It was the crew and ship that was hijacked for ransom, there is no honor or shame amongst thieves.

I believe Shipimages has the right Idea for this vessel, she will not be worth of rebuilding, 16 years old is not a long life for a ship, maybe lack of proper maintenance, bad ballasting, does contribute to some extent the demises of some vessels, my opinion only, lets hope she does not break up before all containers are removed, simular the the CP Valour in Portugal, although this latter vessel was towed off her grounding perch, only after all containers were removed and parts of the vessel broken up, hopefully conditions at Branscombe will allow for this to happen there. Unfortunately, MSC Napoli will be there for time before all this will take place, much to chagrin of the townspeople, who have reason to worry.

The British SAR vessel Anglian Princess, has left the group towing the MSC Napoli, Anglian Princess is heading ESE with a heading of 113, at 13.7 knots,  Caille reported from a news report, MSC Napoli will be beached, and I assumed that was going to be the plan, I don't know if there are port facilities at either these two communities of Sidmouth and Branscombe, that can handle a vessel of this size.

The tow of the MSC Napoli has arrived some 1.5 Naut miles off the coast between Branscombe, and Sidmouth, England, I don't know what the condition of MSC Napoli is at this time, they were joined last evening by the French SAR vessel Argonaute,anyone who might reside in that area may be able to get photos or gives us an update, I can only see what is on my AIS, names and dots of vessels, plus their coordinates, lat, lon, headings, speed, and type of vessel, etc.

The tow is about 13.5 naut. miles East of the closest land, there are just about stopped and were heading 090 at N50.25.501-W003.04.626, their speed keeps fluctuating, as well as their heading.

The Morpeth is in Montreal arrived yesterday, BBC EMS left last night, and one more being towed to Montreal the Clipper Tobago with serious engine problems, Ocean Hercule and Ocean Jupiter are the tugs assigned to do the tow from Hamilton, they should be close to arriving in Montreal shortly. Kathryn Spirit, is now a Canadian saltie but still in Hamilton, she was due to start the Aluminium trade on the St lawrence river, lets hope she can get out before the canal closure. :-?
