Not a surprise at all - especially when the fishing boat did not allow the tow to be taken over by tugs that were sent out. I am sure the cruise ship insurers will find a settlement.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

That looks just like English Bay on any nice summer day.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Actually that is what Vigor says. Eventually they can try that but I did not hear that they had done it.

The only thing I found refers to Vigor blog.

If they had done that, it would be main news in many newspapers. It can happen but it did not happen yet and can never happen.

I am sure you are right

it was a huge fishing vessel judging from the picturs - more a mother ship and a few Pierres at sea

Yes, it seems not to be the case but it has happened and sometimes quite incredibly. On a Spanish port there ia a French Yacht arrested since june waiting a court decision.

On a day with some wind its anchor started to drag and the boat was helped by 3 fishing boats. There are photos that show that the conditions were not bad, that the boat was going to a sand shore without waves or any rocks in protected waters. They did not ask for help but help was offered.....and the fisherman are claiming 26000€ for salvage rights

Better be careful about that when you accept any help

that is such a shame....

my boat is only worth 1,500

but the cameras mI carry on board are worth three times that

could they claim for the value of the cameras?

I wonder if its true.

We had that discussion at work on Thursday. I assumed when the French boat would not turn over the tow to the Tugs that were dispatched it was an effort to secure their rights to claim salvage.

My coworker felt sure you could not claim salvage if the boat had not been abandoned, but I know I've read stories of salvage claims arising from instances of skippers accepting help while they were still aboard. I think it has to do with the peril the vessel is in more than if its abandoned and I'd say a powerless vessel in pirate infested waters was adequate cause.
