This is tragic news and condolences go to the families of the two men who died.

This You Tube Video gives an idea of the damage.


We were on the Viking Freya in July on a Danube River Cruise. We saw the lowering of the wheelhouse to go under a bridge during the day when we were doing scenic cruising and we thought it was a sleek operation where everyone knew what to do and passengers were told they could stay on deck, but they must remain seated.

(Also there's a memorial to the Orcadian surgeon and explorer, Dr John Rae in St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall - Orkney.
He discovered the final part of the North West Passage, and uncovered the fate of the Franklin expedition).

That certainly is bad news of other crew members dead or injured on Harmony of the Seas.  Thinking of the family of the person killed and hope the injuries of the others are not too severe.

There has been an accident with a ferry "getting stock in forward gear" in Scotland.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-37466864

From the sound of it, they have got off lightly - this looks as if it could have been a lot worse doesn't it?

Storm Angus affecting shipping on the Irish Sea...

It must be an "adventure", being stuck out at sea when the storm is too violent for one's ferry to be able to dock safely :

This is a rare event. Normally, they would cancel all sailings until the storm has abated...

Excellent BBC docu-drama on the Herald of Free Enterprise disaster in Zeebrugge on 6 March 1987 :

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08g2r99

This was a ship that I had taken several times, and so many people I knew knew people who were on board that day...

Interesting to listen to the events that happened, as viewed from a fictitious passenger family's point of view, and as presented in the real hearings by crew members.

Not quite at sea but relevant all the same.

A dockside crane at the dock of A&P, Falmouth has collapsed this morning whilst working on new RFA vessel Tidespring.

Here is quite a detailed article about what happened when the US Navy ship FitzGerald collided with the container ship, the ACX Crystal. I had heard nothing so far about the fate of the container ship and her crew ...

The good news is that she has been refloated at high tide with the help of numerous tugs in readiness.
