I've just found out the Second Engineer video'd this snippet on Thursday afternoon while we were between Cape Wrath and Stornoway.

It's not so bad when we're heading into the weather like that so long as everything is lashed down/stowed away properly (like I say, I slept through 3 hours of that on Thursday afternoon :wink: :wink: ). When the weather's on the beam and we roll sleep is a problem. In fact life gets difficult! :shock: :shock: :shock::D

I just read that Obs. It was 20 miles off the LLeyn Peninsula in Wales and the report said 50 foot waves cracked it's hull. :shock: Tragic and only 2 of the 8 on board were rescued, they have since recovered one body and 5 are still missing.

 

Tragic :cry:

 

You be careful out there Asp :huh:

Sorry Baz, Marine Traffic tends to get behind the times. She left Stornoway on Sunday morning and got alongside at Loch Carnan sunday evening. She is still there waiting for a tide/weather/daylight window to sail back to Immingham. Information from Facebook! :blink: :blink: :blink:

It does actually say that the last "known" port was Stornoway but then a little further down it says:

So it is correct I guess....just the way I read it was wrong!!
