LYSBLINK SEAWAYS moved at lunchtime today from Inchgreen with the assistance of tugs ANGLEGARTH, AYTON CROSS and SD RESOURCEFUL to DRB Marine, Rosneath. LYSBLINK SEAWAYS was on passage from Belfast to Norway with a cargo of paper when she ran aground at Kilchoan just north of the Sound of Mull. :(

She's very smart above the waterline Brian but I don't think her keel and bottom plates are too clever. :(

seen her a few times over the years and she was always very smart and clean, but as you say she must be bad under the water for them to send her for razor blades, i just wonder if they will buy a new one to replace her as she was a busy ship, brian

Perhaps she is just going to a cheaper berth, I think the facilities at DRB may not be up to dealing with a ship of her size.

DFDS must have achieved a good settlement with their Insurers!

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/lysb ... -published
The report into MAIB’s investigation of the grounding of cargo vessel Lysblink Seaways, is now published. The vessel ran aground at full speed and remained on the rocky foreshore near Kilchoan for almost 2 days during adverse weather. This resulted in material damage to its hull and the double bottom was breached, including some fuel tanks, resulting in 25 tonnes of marine gas oil entering the water. After the salvage the vessel was declared a constructive total loss and scrapped.
The report contains details of what happened and actions taken.

Well caught - the hire of such a big crane and barge will be expensive, perhaps the coaster is ready to take whatever is lifted out direct to a customer.
