Re: navy rescue

A crud oil ship on fire? What kind of mess it that going to make. Hope the fire just burns out leaving the ship afloat.

Re: navy rescue

Did the ship continue to burn?

Well if the Somalis blame the rest of the world for their perceived woes they will have to justify a VLCC load of crude on their beaches. I wonder who they'll blame?





Well done Jason and crew.




By the way, have a look at the blowup photos of the ship - see crop attached - That ain't no barbed wire entanglement. The Captain should be grilled. Rediculous if ships won't even properly defend themselves.
