MAYDAY MAYDAY - MY VESSEL BROKE!

Postby MikeJames » 01 Feb 2021 17:20

Video shared online by the Twitter account @MarineInsight showed the terrifying moment the Ukrainian-owned cargo ship Arvin broke in half while sailing in Turkish waters in the Black Sea:

At least four crew members have died and two remain unaccounted for after a Ukrainian-owned cargo ship sank in bad weather in the Black Sea off Turkey. Six people have been rescued and four bodies have been recovered from the wreck of the general cargo ship Arvin, which is registered under the flag of the country of Palau.

The ship was heading for Bulgaria from Georgia when it sank. Black Sea region has been hit by heavy rains, snow, and strong winds in recent days.

This ship was obviously not seaworthy. It was Palau flagged with a 12 man Russian and Ukrainian crew.
