Thanks. I knew that because I'm a journalist and I was on duty when the Black Pearl had this big problem.

Same story happened also in october 2004: Black Pearl lost deck cargo of timber and somehow managed to reach the port of Rotterdam, heavy listed.(I visited the vessel in port)
Vessel was detained for about a week there and timber was re-stowed before resuming her voyage.
