The crew of the bulker TRAVE ORE, NIS, class DNV, alerts ITF because it is fearing for its safety after several cracks developed in the deck plate. (Structural, ITF bulletin August 1983)

In August the bulkhead between the loaded hold 9 and empty hold 8 collapsed, with the iron ore pouring in the empty space. With an additional shell damage, the ship was sailing from Kirkenes to Hamburg loaded with 120,000 tons, but had to seek refuge in Kristiansund.

Two weeks later I had to call unexpectedly at a Norwegian port and had no chance to purchase a courtesy flag. In relation to the TRAVE ORE incident, the pilot told me that it did not mattered much, as that flag had lost a lot of its glamour since it was now flown on the worse wrecks afloat. He added that the Norwegian master, who practically saved the ship by quickly proceeding to the sheltered waters of a fjord, met some trouble with the management of the ship.

Date is uncertain. Woinin's cargo size is probably high. Here is a case where the load state, the coastal state, and the flag state are the same, but apparently no investigation.

In 1989, this ship hit a bergey bit, damaging FP and 1P wing tanks. The two casualties appear to be unrelated.
