Stefan,

There are different time zones in the world, and as far as I know, Shipspotting is using some US time zone's time... So not so mysterious after all. :-D

Brgds,
Aleksi

The bad conditions of the short sea shipping spanish ferries is known for every world. The Spanish maritime authorities don't inspection her ships, only sign her certificates without any control. It's a pity, it's truth. :-(

That is not true.
The Spanish Maritime authorities nowadays has detained another ship of the same Company at Denia, "Carmen del Mar" because she don't pass the inspection.
Don Pedro is sinking by human error.

Sorry to hear from this accident. She was very familiar to me, when spent some holidays at Palma Mallorca from 1999 to 2003.
She went there regularly. But anyway the RoRos ther were old.
Another of those RoRos I saw this year at Istanbul, the former Ciudad de Burgos, now with the name Hayat N, but still in its Tramediteranea colours and funnel.
Regards
Gerolf

The spanish ferry "Carmen del Mar" is detained at Denia, for reporting of the trade union, severe problems with four lifeboats, cleanless and plague of cockroaches on board. The another ships of the same owner are in similar condition. It's very easy, say human error, when in Spain the SCTW 98  isn't carried out. Low salaries and bad work conditions never have been a quality flag. :-(

I don´t agree with you. I was first engineer on sister ship "Don Fernando" and the two ships were in good conditions.
