54,120gt French oil products M/T Tugen (built 1999) has arrived in Durban, South Africa, Mar. 2, under tow after being grounded on the West coast of Madagascar. Propeller blades are badly bent and will need extensive repair and the rudder, which was initially lost in grounding but later recovered by the dive team, will be repaired and refitted with a new stock. While on the dock an examination of possible damage to ship's hull will also be made. From our Sr. Correspondent Tim Schwabedissen (Sat. March 4 2006)
