The South Atlantic great circle route is a very lonely place to die, poor sods.

Right on That, Salim,,I did that 3x times,,with reefer ships from Chile via Magellan and then passing
South Afrika into the Persian Gulf to Kuwait and Damman,,,  from the Magellan to S-Afrika, passing the Cape of good Hope no land at all,, the most deserted stretch of sea in terms of shipping lanes used on the surface of earth.

The Lloyds Article referred to by Timsen starts with the following:-

"Six serious deficiencies were found in the vessel this February but it was allowed to sail without any detention."

Ok! Mr Lloyds journalist, can you be more specific, we can all check Tokyo Mou, but how do you happen to know the seriousness of each of the issues raised--- do you even know what they were and what was said (written)?? Furthermore in your opinion why should it have been detained as you so righteously suggest!

So quite frankly Mr. Journalist, your hyped article as it currently appears, is not worth a toss. It is a disgrace.

Well,,as per Equasis, 6 defies. 3 of them were MLC, the easy targets now of PSC,s
1 was for MARPOL VI, incinerator and 2 were for weathertight doors. As hatch covers and holds in general
on such bulkers do not have doors, it seems that Seaway is right,,just a little pushed higher as story.

A sobering reflection on the loss of STELLAR DAISY in Parts 2 and 3 of Andrew Craig-Bennett's article, and the published comments, in Unsafe at any draft (Pt 1 concerned primarily COSTA CONCORDIA):
