Its less than 3 months since the Ocean Drover had mechanical issues that resulted in a high mortality voyage. Now another Wellard ship has engine failure. The Ocean Outback is currently sitting off Rottnest going nowhere since leaving Fremantle on 25th May. Reportedly mechanical issues.
So, what to do? Turn back? Unthinkable. Apparently, the plan is to ditch the Israel plans and limp slowly up to Vietnam ....yet another country with recent ESCAS breaches....on its one engine. Lets hope this voyage doesnt end up as another high mortality voyage....or, worse, another Pakistan!
