A Brazilian site says Brotas was involved in a collision with the Brazilian Ore/Oiler Jacqui in December, 1986 off Cabo Frio. Apparently Jaqqui in ballast was the hitter, and Brotas was hit on the port side. Maybe this is the same casualty.

This site also says ship had 9 cargo tanks. LMIU says 20.

Basically nil info on this spill. This ship also has a spill 2002-05-13, also hit a tug in 2004, killing tug captain.
