    Let the gouge pay for the repair! It was necessary to arrest, or immediately file a claim demanding payment for the damage, and carrying out repairs at the expense of the perpetrator of the collision! !!!

      He's not gouging. Most likely this is a provocation, this accident is very out of place.
      On the other hand, maybe an accident, the place of the emergency is very busy.

        There were most likely gouges on the Arc Royal on the bridge. Look how beautiful we will disperse! Exactly on this one my friend is now sawing in Brazil. The flag is also Barbados. Perhaps the command staff is Russian-speaking. Would like to drown Cola would have driven into the bulkhead between the MO and cargo tank. Thanks for the photo.

        The Kola medium tanker was laid down under construction number 163. Launched on July 30, 1967. Commissioned on October 19, 1967. Joined the Northern Fleet. Only 53 years old, and even a fly did not sit on him. Relic executable.

          Rare books are even more expensive. But not the point. When you get into an accident, then after it gets to the appraiser who makes a defect and names the cost of the repair. (Plus-Minus)
          It's the same with a tanker. First, he must reach the port.

          Duc he keeps on paint, or something else from above flying. We rivet a tanker to replace such dinosaurs. And then they ask why we are building an auxiliary fleet. Give them ships of the far ocean zone right away, and after 45 days, the corvette can go on oars. Of course you can, but not for long.

        Only if the insurance company evades the payment of the insurance premium or if the owner of this trough does not like the payment of the amount of this premium. Considering that the trough was built in the middle of the 20th century, it can be assumed that the amount of the insurance premium will be small.

          The system is debugged - insurers, ship owners, lawyers, courts.
          + Banks (guaranteeing payment by court order) - so as not to arrest the ship.
          There can be no non-payment... This will only lead to additional fines or arrest of the vessel.
          But a long lawsuit or a low payment amount is possible ...
          Much will depend on the professionalism and Jesuit qualities of our lawyers. wink

    I wonder how the corvette guarded the escort ship so that a dry cargo ship stealthily and obviously slowly approached it and rammed it? Interestingly, if they were attacked as ovs by terrorists on boats, the result would be two lost units and it is not known how many drowned? Feels like parade ... in generally hostile waters.

      Why did you decide that the corvette had a combat mission to protect its tanker? There is a senior on the passage on board the corvette, there is an order from the captain of the tanker to follow along with the flagship. From the tanker, I am sure, the corvette was not notified, no help was asked. Ark Royal admitted that he was wrong - most likely he did not miss the obstacle on the right, because he was used to being big and did not notice our old man. And, apparently, not very much, if the campaign continues.
      The Egyptians have not yet had terrorists (and there is only Egypt around the coast), and it is not enough to pick up the chewed foolishness to attack a ship under the Russian flag if a military man is accompanying it. So vigilance is needed in such places, but not from terrorists, but from nihilists like this Arc Royal. The place is very lively, just have time to twirl your head.

      - the corvette does not guard the tanker, but the tanker accompanies the corvette. in this case, the corvette is not a convoy ship
      - it is impossible to approach unnoticed. but it is not always possible to predict an emergency situation or its consequences in advance. there are no roads or lanes in the sea. and the ship cannot be stopped by pressing the brake pedal.

            Yes, it is the captain of the tanker who submits a protest to the captain of the port or notar in order to protect the shipowner, and for the insurance company to pay damages. The insurance company understands who is guilty for how much, and the amount of losses.

      Either a tug or a tanker.

      That's how we drive, always in pairs.

      So that "if suddenly" - at least someone could come to the rescue ...
      This is for reflections on the reliability of technology and the opinion of the operators themselves about that very reliability.

      And there, by the way, in my opinion, there was a group of ships. Admiral Grigorovich visited Port Sudan, before that he took part in the Pakistani exercises. And the same Steadfast has been there since December on a campaign.

      Rather, the Royal Ark is suitable. Gored, well, anything can happen.

    Who knows why the tanker is so named? Hopefully this has nothing to do with Coca-Cola.

      The Kola River flows out of Kolozero and flows into the apex of the Kola Bay at a distance of 10 km from the mouth of the Kola River. Tuloma.

    Of course, the attitude "for ours" is understandable.
    But I want add a little objectivity.
    The point is that the sea is not a crossroads with cars and traffic lights.
    There may be many reasons for this collision, from "no one is to blame" to real negligence or stupidity.
    There may be a car failure, or a third vessel interfered, a pilot error, a failure of the steering gear, hundreds of reasons ...
    Details are needed.
    And by the way, the courts never award damage to only one side. Always distributed as a percentage. To be "innocent" it is necessary to prove that the vessel is in perfect condition, the crew is highly qualified, all safety procedures and the Rules of Navigation have been followed. For example, even a vessel that is to be given way has an obligation to take action to avoid a collision (a last-minute maneuver).

      So it is reported that the Royal cap admitted that it was wrong.
      What to prove to whom?
      Our deputy director hit a motorcyclist the other day. Being in an obscene state while driving
      There is even a video they say (I really did not watch, the team looked through it)
      A man's leg was sawed off about this. I do not mean the director.
      What, to whom does he have to prove ... request

        In the navy, everything is different. There is a long investigation going on.
        And the court. Most likely in London.
        There are two shipowner companies and two (if different) insurance companies on both sides.
        The captain's statement is only part of a lot. This alone is not enough. They will dig everything up anyway.
        Pay will not be the office from which the captain works, but the insurance company of this bulk carrier.
        And they, NATURALLY, will resist, reduce the amount of payment, look for extenuating circumstances and violations on the other hand ...
        They can even force the captain to refuse such a statement, if he did it (I strongly doubt it).

          I agree. If you go deeper into the depths of our depths, then it is a long and tedious business. And also troublesome.
          On the other hand, there is bread for the departments of legal, financial and other security. We must sometime and work off their wages.
          Otherwise, why do they contain all this "kitchen"?! ..
          For example, even on our unfortunate SZ. repeat

    "Ark Royal" must be such a loud name! Well at least not Royal Oak ...
    Well, I gave it to the stern and the steamer went further on its own, so nothing significant happened.
    He will come home, the gas cutters will warm up / the korpunniki will knock with a sledgehammer / the painting sisters will touch up.
    Will walk more than ever.

      Our houses, of course, will be repaired ... If all the damage did not affect the set below the waterline, then without a dock - at the wall ...
      And the bulk carrier - for merchant ships "home" is not present, these are not the glorious times of the USSR.
      Home port and flag, where there are less taxes and requirements. The shipowner is offshore.
      The Operator Company is an official person. It can also be offshore.
      Repair will be where it is cheaper and "closer" after the completion of the voyage assignment, upon leaving the charter (lease), if the vessel is capable of continuing the voyage.

    Both ships are always to blame for the law of the sea. The court will deal with the damage, most likely there will be a mutual

    And here's an interesting point in the article: the tanker accompanied the corvette. Such a strange accompaniment.
