Hull crack in 1P, discovered discharging Rotterdam. Corossion not a factor, almost certainly fatigue.

The only reason we know about this problem. is that the ship had a major tank over-pressurization casualty a week later at Fawley. It shows up in the MAIB report. Looks like Rotterdam shoved it under the rug despite the fact that there apparantly was a small amount of oil in the water.
