Hi there

Nice shot. She obviously likes the botton as she also grounded on 1 January as the Bonga in a posn. 36.34N, 27.04E. Water entered ballast tanks, forepeak tanks and holds. Her cargo was transferred to a coaster, Evia. Initial attempts to refloat were unsuccessful, but she was later refloated. She was on a voyaage from Novorossiysk to Iskenderun
