Finnish ro-ro disabled in English Canal Dec 19 Update
Dec 19: According to MRCC France, BORE SEA was disabled due to damaged cylinder. Tug MULTRATUG 7 was deployed, but is too weak to tow ro-ro alone, capably of preventing her drift only. Extra tug tug MULTRATUG 20 joined convoy on Dec 18, towage towards Rotterdam commenced, ETA Rotterdam Dec 19.
Dec 18: As of 0700 UTC Dec 18 was under tow in roughly the same area where she was drifting and then taken on tow. Some problems arised, obviously, during towage.
Ro-ro cargo ship BORE SEA was disabled in English Canal at around 0730 UTC Dec 17 northwest of Le Havre, while en route from Portugal to Rotterdam, and started to drift. Seems like nearby tug MULTRATUG 7, en route from Spain to Terneuzen, was somehow deployed, and took BORE SEA on tow.
