i believe sir most of the post damamge is due to cargo of containers on baord,
time has come to re-design the ships for containers as you can see masters or company uses every damm inches of the ship to stack the containers and in such situation see yourself the devastating after effects !!
where are saftey and stabilising rules have been gone??

Dramatic shot. Thank you for this series of pictures!

I also saw some pictures on the SvitzerWijsmuller web page now that appear to be newer. The whole aft part of the vessel is burnt out. To me it looks like the bunker tanks must have ruptured and helped fuel the massive fire in the aft cargo bays.

Best regards
