She is now lying at the bottom of the Caribean, somewhere offshore Venezuela. She was being towed by the tug Icon 1 from Trinidad to Venezuela. When she was in collision with the stationary drillship PetroSaudi Saturn on the evening of 2nd April 2011. In spite of the fact the PetroSudi Saturn was probably the most obvious vessel in the Caribean. Anyway, it was a very costly collision as Lloyds apparently had to pay out $100 million.
