Interesting reading of events of the grounding of the Danio on the Farne Islands last year
Note; open the pdf file at the bottom for full details

Falling asleep on the job can be partly blamed but not surprising when you read the hours that the crew worked.

The only way that something is done when for example UK declares vessels in that trade will not allowed entry in UK ports anymore when two watch officers beside the Master are not aboard. I did this trade in 83/84 and again in 97-98 and it is a fact that with two officers the ships can not be handled safely all the time.
But it is all about money and money runs the show.

Thank you Mike,

A very interesting link of which I will print out and take aboard my vessel when I join next week. Lots to be learned to make the seas and seafarers safer.

Many thanks Mike,

Cheers, Dan.
