Dear Ian Gray, Station Commander NSRI Port ElizabethPlease see below from Capt Duse – I would like to echo his comments.Many thanks, you and your team managed to alleviate what could have been a very serious maritime incident.Best regardsDave Murray | BU Manager : Offshore Marine Services I would like to forward my deepest and sincere appreciation and thanks to the NSRI teams - Rescue 21 St Francis and Rescue 37 Jeffrey's Bay and their base support teams that came out to give support and medical standby during the time of the bridle wire recovery and tow connection. We had on this occasion had to work as close as <5 meters from the bulbous bow of the MT ORDER to recover the very short bridle pennant on deck. It was comforting and morale up lifting to all onboard to have the rescue teams in close standby should any immediate evacuation of crew had been requiredI take my hat off to those guys who offer their time and life for the preservation of life to all connected with the seas.Well done to all… Give them all a Bells from usKind regardsThe Master , Officers and crewRussel DuseMaster – m.t. “SA Amandla” At 19h30, Friday, 04th May, NSRI St Francis Bay duty crew were alerted following reports of the Tug Boat AHT Carrier reporting that while towing the MT Order (towing to Maputo) the towing rope had separated and rope had fouled the tug boats one motor tethering her to the casualty boat. She was unable to recover the tow rope to re-attach a towline to the casualty vessel and reporting that effectively both the tug boat and the casualty vessel were drifting shorewards in the currents but at that stage still at least 15 nautical miles off-shore.
