Not sure if it is really like that,,but heard that the spanish government does not have anything in their budget for PSC and the PSC people have to finance their salaries through fines imposed on vessels calling spanish ports. That could be a reason for their bad names.

The Spanish port state control inspectors are renowned for "always finding something", and it was careless of the Dutch tug EDDY I (IMO 9714575) both to run low on fuel coming back from Venezuela - and then to enter Vigo without flying the Spanish courtesy ensign.  

However it is rather embarrasing that a three-year-old EU-flagged vessel should have been detained for nearly a month.  She had only just reverted to NLD flag in March, so the subsequent change to Panama while she is detained looks more like a move to keep the NLD record as low as possible.

There is no shortage of numbers and, as Phil says, they will definitely not be recycled.

There are over 10,000 "9" numbers left
A large number of "8" numbers have not been issued yet (they are used for allocations for ships which are not newbuildings)
I suspect that there are a good number of never issued "5,6,7" numbers
I think that only a few "3" or "4" numbers have been utilised
As far as I know "1" numbers are at present mainly used for yachts; also some of these and some "2" numbers have been used for small vessels outside the IMO system and only appear if that vessel subsequently applies for an IMO number (eg
Some "invisible numbers" have been used for database purposes as temporary internal IDs
And of course, though there may be technical reasons not to use them, no "0"(zero) numbers have been used, that's another 99,999 more.

Indeed a good article.
Looking at how it all started (choosing the route and what possible influenced the decision from the Masters side) and what then all happened during the trip, the seemingly none consideration of weather information or at least applying the information timely is kind of fascinating to me. What struck me most, that neither the officers on the bridge nor the Master at any time really were aware what track the hurricane took and reacted accordingly.
