Danio, IMO 9218533 is reported to run aground today off the Farne Islands.
The local RNLI report the ship is in an awkward position for tugs but an attempt to refloat the vessel will be made on the next high tide.

Looking at her track on Marinetraffic, she just steamed directly for the islands, another case of fatigue again ?

Cheers, Dan.

Was in attendance. Hemiksem is now lurking near the shore and Danio is exactly where it started out; on the rocks!

The mighty BBC (and some others) tend to think that they can get away with it, and they usually do, essentially because one-person bands don't usually have the dosh to sue them for copyright. They have nicked my video on ocassion, which is why I put a biggish branding on, and why I moan loudly when they do it . . . they've never given me money, however!

I sometimes use individual photographers pictures from here and other sources when making video for www.shippingtv.co.uk, but always get permission - although it can slow things down, which is what the beeb don't like.

The Hemiksen has been in the Tyne since late last night and is still here!

Not exactly your big salvage tug with only a 40 ton bollard pull, then IF/WHEN they do get the Danio off what are they going to do next?

Reports say she is holed and needs a drydock and the nearest is on the Tyne and currently the Normand Pioneer is sitting in it  Smiley

Seahouses RNLI had a video on the BBC web site today, showing someone walking round the ship. The hull, at least the port side, is intact.
The ship has fetched up on a big flat expanse of the rocks and looks as if it had been carefully placed there with a crane!
Also, I note there is no sign of the "special equipment" the RNLI were talking about coming to help. So I suppose that means 2 weeks camping on the rocks for the crew then until the next suitable tide.

Yup. We are currently on the Tyne sheltering from the weather until SOSREP make a decision.

6m swell out there at the moment. No weather for any tug.

She looks to be very much intact, well the port side at least.  This talk of a hole by the press is likely to be the bow thruster tunnel, the UK media are not renowned for being accurate when it comes to maritime casualties.  In fact im amazed they didnt caller her a tanker !!

As mentioned earlier she is sitting quite trim on the rocks, no list or apparent escape of liquids etc.

Maybe its a blessing she gounded on the run down to neap tides, imagine a big swell coming in and lifting her before pounding her back onto the rocks.

Lets hope for a simple salvage with minimal damage to the vessel or environment.

Slightly off topic here, but has anyone ever seen the bow thruster symbol painted on the stem of a vessel like on the Dario ? I have always been led to believe it goes directly above the bow thruster ?

Interesting ?

Hi Dan

Just tried it on two desk tops and another lap top and works ok!
Photos are at the bottom of the link when you do find it, it will automatically scroll through about 10 pic's, look at the eighth pic of the hole.
