  • The Hatchling did not break it - honest!

    It looks like the Laura Maersk has had a slight problem off the coast of the Aleutian Islands

    Having just had a Dry Dock - which The Hatchling was on - she had a new bow and a new propeller as well as updates to engine management software.

    I know that nobody was hurt and it was a mechanical problem, but fancy breaking down in probably the worst place she could have? This could take some time to sort out.

    But the Hatchling swears that it was nothing to do with him...... (It just come off in my hand Chief!) - He is off back to sea on Thursday for his last trip before his Mates Course, so we shall see.....

    Anyone fancy a sweepstake? LOL.
