World Ship Society’s Marine News September 2004 Vol. 58 No. 9 reported that on 26/4/2004, the bulk carrier CAPE AFRICA 77,096/91 developed a 7m x23m hole in the hull by No. 3 hold when 200 miles west of Cape Town. The situation was considered serious with heavy seas and water entering the hold and the crew was evacuated. She was taken in tow by the SMIT AMANDLA and headed to deeper water where bunker fuel was transferred to the tug NIKOLAY CHIKER. She was then towed , stern first, to False Bay where she arrived 18/5 for temporary repairs.

Thanks Wim.

I have corrected the name, I should have read it off her bows.

The correct name is JOHN ROSS so without the SA prefix. She only had this from 1976 - 1978.

Cheers,

Wim
