Container ship OOCL Belgium inspected in Liverpool after taking rolls of more than 40 degrees
On Jan 3, 2014, the "OOCL Belgium" was caught in the middle of the North Atlantic experiencing first-hand winter storm Hercules, a huge low pressure system that forecasters said could be creating waves of over 20 meters tall. The "OOCL Belgium" which was underway from Montreal, where she had sailed on Dec 30, 2013, was taking rolls topping out at more than 40 degrees. Reports indicated the "OOCL Belgium" may have sustained some cracking and she was being inspected in Liverpool after she docked on Jan 6 at 1.45 p.m. in the Gladstone Dock. The vessel shifted to the Royal Seaforth Dock around 3 p.m.
In my opinion always interesting to see this video`s. Of course you can find a lot of interesting pictures/videos/news on this site, but this exclusive video from the bridge of a vessel are hard to find.
