Now with just one tug (BRENT) off Beachy Head. ASTORIA seems to have switched off AIS

But her ghost doesn't want to go  Smiley
When they turned off her AIS once out of the Thames.

BRENT (presumably still with ASTORIA), continues in the Channel on heading due east at a respectable 8kn and now S of Swanage; destination "TBA".  All very strange.

[later] TBA now changed to Flushing/Vlissingen - ETA seven hours ago.

Maybe while in Rotterdam (if she does indeed get there) it would make sense to repair ASTORIA so that the can sail under her own power. Has anyone seen a reliable, non-speculative report as to why she had to be towed in the first place? The only report I have seen is that the engines were "knackered". That's a bit too technical for me!(LOL)

Was there any indication before the first lockdown that Astoria's engines were 'knackered'? I'd not heard anything to that effect.

Hi,

Can anybody confirm where ASTORIA is?

Tugs Brent and GINGER are at Rotterdam Anchorage. Are they still assisting her?
