Hi.. im very shure this is M/V SILVA there vas very mutch known here in denmark.. here is the story:
On the 22nd October 2003 at 0505 hours ESVAGT ALPHA receives a distress call from Cambodian vessel M/S SILVA. ESVAGT ALPHA is on her return to Esbjerg from crew change of ESVAGT standby/rescue vessels with 43 crew onboard.

The SILVA carries a cargo of timber incl. a deck cargo. The vessel has a list of app. 35 - 40 degrees due to the deck cargo has shifted.

The crew declines evacuation before daylight.

As the crew onboard the SILVA apparently had no survival suits and only traditionally lifesaving appliances 12 survival suits were delivered from ESVAGT ALPHA by means of rescue helicopter.

Between 0835 and 0858 12 crewmembers jumps into the sea, one by one in groups of three, to be picked up by the waiting FRC from ESVAGT ALPHA.

the ship is broken up in Esbjerg 1/2 a year after she vas sold to a norwegian company..
