On December 5, 2003, at approximately 1516 (local time) the M/V ASPHALT COMMANDER was inbound on the Savannah River near buoy #24 when the engines briefly declutched. Propulsion was restored within minutes. The cause of the declutching was the failure of a relay circuit card in way of the vessel's automation control system. The chief engineer bypassed the control system and manually reclutched the engines. A spare circuit card was installed and the system back in operation. Case closed. /S/ SIO, SAVMS
