MAERSK HONAM Mar 13 Update. General Average already declared.
As of 1230 UTC Mar 13, MAERSK HONAM and 4-5 tugs engaged in salvage were in vicinity 11 11N 065 51E, moving some 70 nm during last 24 hours, in NNW direction, so probably port and country of destination were changed. I remember in other 1-2 cases of container ships major accident the ships, or what was left of them, were taken to Oman.
Maersk meanwhile, declared General Average, with all ensuing mayhem: https://theloadstar.co.uk/insurers-brace-multi-million-dollar-claims-maersk-honam-towed-port/
Quite a number of speculations emerged, in which concerned people are trying to reconstruct the tragedy of those 5 who perished in accident. Many questions can be asked, and are already asked, with yet no answer to any of them. But this tragic side of the disaster is so extremely sensitive, not only to the relatives of perished crew, but also to those who survived disaster, that I for one, won’t take part in such speculations. If some of the crew come up with their story, for whatever reasons, I’ll publish it. If some trustworthy report on the timeline of the tragedy is to appear somewhere, I’ll publish it. But no speculations or investigations of my own, it’s just not a right thing to do, under the circumstances.
