She is a Post-Panamax vessel - to quote the president, a "HUGE" vessel - And the sea, she still wants to kill us all. :nod:

The Dutch Receiver of Wreck is going to be busy. I tracked containers that washed overboard from containership leaving Portland that eventually washed up near Friendly Cove. They were full of Grade A timber and the locals were quite happy to assist in the cleanup (and local home renovations) and that saved the insurance company money so they didn't complain to loudly.
