I don't think we have much of a seaborne fire fighting capability do we?


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

Isn’t the captain supposed to go down with the ship?

Are we going to have a batch of sea cans wash up on the shores of Dallas Road?

What’s in those things anyway?

CCG: “Overnight the tug Seaspan Raven has cooled the hull of the M/V #ZimKingston by spraying the hull with cold water. Due to the nature of chemicals onboard the container ship, applying water directly to the fire is not an option.”: https://twitter.com/...8286861316?s=21


So just “boundary cooling” to keep it from melting and sinking.

I wonder if this event will raise awareness about how hazardous cargo should be shipped through the straights to Seattle or Vancouver.

It’s obviously more risky to ship hazardous materials than televisions. Should there be a toll on shipping vessels? Should those toll fees be used to fund emergency programs?

Fires largely out. What might look like smoke is blowing water from the massive fire boat on scene. 
 

There really isn’t any smoke to be seen as of 13:00.

Does this paragraph make any sense?




Water was sprayed throughout the night and into the morning by Seaspan Raven. “Due to the nature of chemicals onboard the container ship, applying water directly to the fire is not an option,” the Canadian Coast Guard said.

If it does, at least explain. But the article makes no such effort.

The burning chemical is basically sulphur. You can’t use water on a sulphur fire, as all it does is spread the fire around without actually extinguishing the fire. 
 

Sulphur fires require chemical extinguishers, or in this case - just let the fire burn out. 
 

They sprayed water on the hull, and the adjacent containers through the night, to prevent the metal from buckling and causing even more (different) issues.

I took this pic an hour or so ago (15:00 on Sunday). All of what you see in the air is wind blown water.

Do we have any insight into what the 40 containers that were lost at sea contained?
