Ship loaded iron ore Sept Iles for Rotterdam.
Failure was some 270 mi SW Banty Bay in bad weather.
Some of the crew were helicoptered off,
but weather improved and ship was allowed
to seek refuge in Bantry Bay.
She was there for 3 months.
One Irish source claims she leaked oil and some birds were oiled.
If true, this means damage extended aft into bunker tanks.
This is Ferguson's Ship 4. Says "No 8 side shell lost".
Sounds like ship was single skin,
but we need confirmation.
