the 174 M, 20478 GT chemical tank vessel BOW FIGHTER
was in the process of anchoring at Bonnet Carre Anchorage
when the main engine failed to answer an astern command.
The cause of the power loss was a faulty pipe
leading to the engine shutdown air cylinder.
The piping was renewed
and the main engine was tested to the satisfaction of an
attending class surveyor.
The class report is attached as evidence.
