Dutch Runner / Elko / Samee Shipping - engineer beware

Post by The Dieselduck »

Dutch Runner is a smallish coastal con-ro / multi purpose ship that has been in Canada since 2008. It has a checkered past, and has lately been in the news due to the ITF securing payment of back wages, as the vessels languishes in Port Hawkesbury. I haven't been following it of late, but obviously, particular vigilance should be the word of the day if you are looking at working on this ship.

Since 14/07/2014, the registered owner is...
606 Aberdeen Avenue
Hamilton ON
L8P 2T1, Canada
