The Liberian turbo-electric bulk carrier Pacrover
was on a voyage from Roberts Bank, BC to Yokohama
with a cargo of 20,000 tons of coal
when she was abandoned in a sinking condition
by her 30 South Korean crew members
during stormy 50 ft seas in the North Pacific
about 800 miles south of Kodiak, Alaska,
in lat 44.50N, long 152.00W on December 24, 1972.
An air and sea search was conducted
but all that was found were four overturned lifeboats,
an oil slick, and debris.
