Freighter sinks after collision with LNG carrier

Postby JK » Wed Oct 07, 2015 2:49 am

One comment I read was that it would be interesting to see the vessels track overlaid on a chart of the windfarms and sandbanks off the Belgian coast.
4 AM collision, I wonder if they were watch changing or on 6 and 6...

No question of who is at fault here. The Dutchman did exactly the right thing.
