The 90,654 Moroccan motor tanker Samir
was berthed at the oil refinery jetty of Mohammedia,
near Casablanca, when she broke her moorings
during extremely severe weather conditions
and was then driven aground on rocks
off Point Blondin in lat 33.43.42N, long 07.20.48E
on November 8, 1982.
She still had about 20,000 tons of her 80,000 tons crude oil cargo,
that had been loaded at Ras Tanura,
remaining in her tanks.
There were no injuries to any of her crew.
The samir was successfully refloated on November 26,
after which she was towed to Cadiz to be examined in dry dock.
As a result of the extensive bottom damage sustained,
she was declared a constructive total loss,
and sold to Spanish shipbreakers.
