SEA Watch
First on offer is SEA Watch’s take on the terrible "SEWOL" ferry tragedy in South Korea. It’s of course still being investigated but pre-existing steering control problems, which evidently led to a hard port rudder situation in combination with an overloaded and apparently unstable vessel, appears to have been the proximate cause of the capsize. The deadly and untimely fate of over 300 of her passengers – many of them high school students – was then sealed by the apparent incompetence of her Master and crew as well as evident lifesaving equipment deficiencies. Heads will no doubt roll but will this stop it from happening again?
