I AGREE WITH TOMAS WITH REGARDS TO THIS VESSEL,SHE IS GETTING OLD. IT IS NOW UP TO THE OWNERS AND THE CLASSIFICATION SOCIETY TO ASCERTAIN WHAT CAUSED THE FATAL SINKING.UNFORTUNATELY THIS IS THE WAY OF THE MARITIME WORLD ON OCCASION. FERNENG.

The level of misinformation and failure to understand the reality here is astonishing. If you want to know the truth, please read the correct news articles, not those from over a year ago!

Sasha and Sprut,
Thank you for telling me about what horrible thing happened to the Swanland.
My thoughts are with the lost crew and their next of kin.
Regards, Ria
