    I recon we are going to see plenty more where this one came from. How can a ship break up with no or little environmental damage. Is the wool being pulled over our eyes ?

    This is absolutely true - although we can and should insist on ship safety to get our rice to our shores.

    We need the ships, but when s...t happens we need th responsible people to own up to it!
    If they dont we should get some other carrier to do the job.

    The global shipping industry is a complex one. Unfortunately there are still vessel owners out there (some, not all), who duck and dive from one port to another, accepting the cheapest charters, because that is all they can get. Less income means that there is less money for maintenance. Obviously this is all exacerbated by the global financial situation.

    We see this often in West Africa, where some of the vessels are quite literally death traps. If the crews complain, they are replaced by someone more compliant.

    I disagree with that actually.

    these ships are run at the lowest possible cost to keep the price of commodities low, because THAT is what the general public worldwide demands.

    it is only a very small percentage of the world's population that gives a hoot about the environment - and it's the wealthy that put the effort in.

    If you stated that the price of all commondity would double overnight to allow ship owners to run perfect vessels and replace them before they fall apart, a few people would be happy and the rest would burn down and loot half the world.

    Or, as Swimma says, if they actually enforced the rules around the state of ships when they dock.

    Boat like that should have been impounded years ago at one of the ports it delivers to. and either scrapped or repaired.

    Problem is that the dodgy ship owners are clever enough to know which ports to avoid, and which ports to go to for their dry docking and certification needs.

    I've been in plenty of vessels where you point out a very extensive list of deficiencies, only to be told by the vessel master "But we dry dock last year in XXXXX port, and we have no problems there. Why you make problems for me?"

    I thought the harbour master could deny the ship permission to leave dock if it's not seaworthy?

    Technically yes, but unless there are blindingly obvious safety hazards (like the ship is on fire, or they have a big hole in the side), there simply aren't enough surveyors to check each and every ship that moves through the port.

    I'm not trying to paint a picture of doom and gloom here, most of the vessels out there are more than willing to abide by the regulations, as the master understands to implications for his crew and for the ship owner.

    Just remember, the real reason why the Cape Penguin is on the endangered list is because some so called environmentalists stopped the culling of seals.

    If the seal numbers had been appropriately reduced as the plan had been at the time, we would still have a healthy population of cape Penguins.
