"In the night of Feb 10, 2018, the port authorities of Chania and Kissamos were informed that the 'Skylark' had suffered mechanical damage with a crew of seven on board in Kissamos Bay. The tug 'Christos XXV' was deployed to assist and towed the ship to the port of Kissamos, where it was detained by the Kissamos Port Authority until the seaworthiness has been restored and certified. The ship had sailed unloaded from the port of Misrata for the port of Tuzla."

Since then her Turkish owners (West Anatolia Shipping & Trading SA, St Kitts - mng Anadolu Denizcilik Tasimacilik, Istanbul) seem to have given up on her. Even her Palau-flag registration now closed. One way tow to Aliaga next?

She's certainly looking tired for sure. I wonder how much thickness she lost on her hull plating?
