The Swedish Club analyzes an incident of a collision of a container ship with a fishing vessel, while in restricted visibility. The container ship continued its voyage after the incident, which was a very bad decision by the Master, the Club stressed.
In its Loss prevention – Navigational claims publication, the Swedish Club describes a collision between two vessels in a narrow channel. In this case, while there was a verbal agreement to pass ‘starboard to starboard’, one of the two vessels did not maintain position on its starboard side of the fairway.
In its latest Safety Flashes, IMCA presents an incident of a crew member fainting after working in an enclosed space. The crew member reported he had smelled a strong odour after dislodging a large caked piece of sediment from the bell mouth.

The Swedish Club issued its Navigational Claims 2020, this time focusing on a collision that took place in a narrow channel between two vessels, which although had verbal communication in conducting starboard-to-starboard operation, they end up colliding.
