Dunno how you figure that because
Containers loaded : 4,382 units (7,041 TEU)
i.e. 4382 containers some 40 foot, some 20 foot on board.
and only a few fell off. Number to be calucluated/confirmed etc.

I'm sorry, but thats meaningless. All ships are on a shedule.

Now as an aside. I just hit up MOL Comfort on Live Ships Map - AIS - Vessel Traffic and Positions and it shows the ship in Gremany! So I guess the Black Box and the AIS are there already...

someone wanta confirm that? LOLOL

Re: Containership Breaks in Half - Update and Images

Cotemar - Can you tell me what brand anchor that is. I'm planning on buying a Manson Supreme, I hope that was a cheap knock off and not a Manson. Thanks.
