I. INCIDENT BRIEF
T/V Overseas Integrity was inbound Delaware Bay when the stern bearing overheated.
Vessel anchored East of Harbor Refuge and was towed dead ship to Packer Ave Terminal.
Cargo offloaded, the cause of the incident is unknown,
but could have possibly been due to a line entering the CPP system
due to vsl running over some crab pots
and also, the shaft was hot and the bearing cool.
As vessel is now in a lay up status awaiting sale,
management decided not to take apart the system to correct,
diagnose and fix the problem.
All certificates are due to expire at the end of September
and will not be renewed
