Odlomek (117 dni na pragu smrti):

Dnevi so prešli v tedne, tedni v mesece, borba za preživetje je zahtevala vedno več napora. Napihljivi splav, ki jima je nudil edino zaščito, je razpadal, neprestano je bilo treba izmetavati vodo in črpati zrak. V dveh hudih viharjih sta izgubila streho nad splavom, kompas in nekaj plastenk z vodo; zbolela sta, dobila hude sončne opekline po telesu, zaradi slane vode pa boleče izpuščaje po koži. Podhranjena in dehidrirana sta se komaj še premikala. V štirih mesecih je plulo mimo sedem ladij, ne da bi ju kdo opazil. Bil je 117 dan.

Sea U There!

Monday 11 Feb 2019

Austal Limited (ASX:ASB) advises that it has officially delivered, and its customer has accepted, the largest commercial ferry (by volume) the Company has ever built at its shipyard in Henderson, Australia.

Official delivery triggers the final A$20 million-plus payment on the vessel, which was built on budget.

Construction of the A$109 million vehicle passenger ferry, to be named ‘Express 4’, commenced in 2017 for Molslinjen A/S (OMX: MOLS), using an enhanced design based on Austal’s proven catamaran platform, but with a new optimised hull shape and vessel weight minimisation solution to deliver better performance and greater fuel efficiency.

The 109 metre vessel can carry up to 1,000 tonnes, and is capable of transporting more than 1,000 passengers and 425 cars. It will operate at speeds up to 40 knots and during testing achieved a top speed of 47.8 knots (88km/hour), powered by four MAN engines that produce more power combined (36mW) than the Ord River hydro power plant (30mW).

Approximately 400 Austal employees worked on the vessel during the design, pre-fabrication, construction and fit-out phases of the vessel, drawing upon a supply chain of over 1,000 suppliers Australia-wide and internationally.

Austal CEO David Singleton said: "The design and engineering enhancements pioneered by Austal’s Australian design team will enable Molslinjen to achieve lower operating costs and deliver an enhanced passenger experience, two of the most important factors for global operators of large, high speed ferries.

"Delivery of the Express 4 to Molslinjen confirms Austal’s position as Australia’s pre-eminent shipbuilder of large high-speed commercial craft, and we expect delivery and operations of this vessel will trigger future orders for similar vessels from other ferry operators."

Construction of a similar design vessel, a 109 metre vehicle passenger catamaran for Fjord Line of Norway, is already well advanced at Austal Philippines, using the same hull enhancements. 

Other commercial ferries currently under construction at Austal’s shipyards in Australia, Philippines and Vietnam include 2 x 117 metre vehicle passenger trimarans for Fred Olsen S.A of Spain, 1 x 83 metre passenger trimaran for JR Kyushu Jet Ferry of Japan, 2 x 50 metre catamarans for Brave Line of Taiwan, and 1 x 49 metre catamaran for SNC Aremiti of French Polynesia. In addition, Austal’s joint venture in China, Aulong Shipbuilding, is currently constructing 5 x 42 metre catamarans and 1 x 69 metre catamaran for mainland China operators.

The official delivery of ‘Express 4' to Molslinjen marks the start of a 27-day voyage from Henderson to its home port in Odden in Denmark, via Sri Lanka, the Suez canal and Malta. The vessel is expected to commence regular ferry services in the Kattegat Sea from mid-March 2019.

Following initial reports that Alex Thomson’s Hugo Boss had grounded on rocks during the final miles of the Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe and while leading the IMOCA class, Race Direction has contacted the British skipper to check his status.

They have ascertained that while sailing on port tack at the north end of Grande Terre island, Hugo Boss ran aground on rocky cliffs around 21:45hrs (local time/0145hrs UTC Friday).  The accident occurred at the north end of Grande Terre, just south of the Grande Vigie lighthouse on La Pointe à Claude.

Upon hitting the cliff, Alex Thomson had to lower his sails and start his engine to reverse his boat from these rocks. He was able to extract himself from the reefs before re-hoisting his sails to resume his passage. Thomson stopped his engine and then set a new seal on the propeller shaft.

The skipper was not injured but there is damage to his boat. The crash box in the bow is damaged and has taken in water but it is contained, and the bowsprit is damaged. The water is contained by the forward bulkhead. The starboard foil is damaged. According to Thomson’s conversation with the Race Director, the keel and its structure are certainly also affected. But it has not been possible to establish a more precise diagnosis during the hours of darkness.

Currently, the boat is sailing at a speed of 7 knots and continues its passage around the island towards the finish line. Approaching the small island at Tete à l’Anglais he has about 50 miles to go until the finish line.

The International Jury was immediately informed by Race Direction of the accident and it will file a protest against Alex Thomson for using his engine during the race.

Suzuki has launched a new MFD aimed at rivalling the top electronics providers.

The Suzuki Multi-Function Display is designed to ‘provide the ultimate connectivity in order to unite the boat driver with the surrounding environment’.

“This is a huge step forward for Suzuki,” said Yasuharu Osawa, managing officer, executive general manager, marine operations, Suzuki Motor Corporation. “The all new Suzuki Multi-Function Display is the perfect solution as it offers Suzuki customers access to all the information they need to be assured of a safe and ultimate boating experience.”

Engine data

Features include chart plotter, radar, fish finder and weather information via an internet connection.

The screen will also give access to Suzuki engine data enabling users to see the performance of the outboard/s in one view.

It can be set up to display just engine data, or a combination of engine and environmental information.

There are also options to enable digital switching to control navigation lights, trim tabs and multi-beam sonar as well as full connectivity with other systems.

The unit is available in four screen sizes from 7in to 16in.

Team Nika became the first team ever to claim a hat trick of RC44 World Championship titles after Vladimir Prosikhin, tactician Dean Barker and their crew managed to fend off Igor Lah's Team CEEREF on the final day of big conditions racing off Cascais. The two boats started the day with Team Nika five points ahead. 

In 15 knot NNW winds, Chris Bake's Team Aqua was fastest out of the blocks in the first race to become the sixth race winner at this World Championship. Meanwhile in the leader’s fight Team CEEREF closed the gap to three points. 

Race two saw Team Nika righting the wrongs of the previous race, as they creeped round the top mark first, ahead of Team Aqua. Bronenosec Sailing Team followed in fourth but immediately gybed. Within seconds she took the lead, going on to claim her third bullet. Tactician Cameron Dunn explained: “We rounded in the biggest rightie we’d seen and in a big puff - very windy, in the mid-high 20s. We did a nice hoist, better than all of the boats around us and jumped the gybe on everyone. After all that happened yesterday [when they received a four point penalty] I was like ‘please let this work…’ I was very proud of the boys today.”

Behind, Team Nika managed to retain second as Team CEEREF was third, despite having briefly overtaken their opponent on the first run. Team CEEREF tactician Adrian Stead explained: “We made a big gain and crossed them, but we didn’t consolidate that and they led around the gate.”

With the wind building to 20+ knots and the sea state increasing, Team Nika started the last race with a four points lead and ultimately ended the regatta in style. Winning the committee boat end at the start, she tacked, led out to the favourable right side. “Today the breeze was a lot more left-shifted in close to the shore,” explained Barker.

From there Vladimir Prosikhin’s team sailed conservatively enough in the building wind and sea state to claim the final race and win the RC44 World Championship title by six points.

“I am thrilled,” said a beaming Prosikhin. “It was difficult to the very end. CEEREF is very fast and is a risk-taker. We won the World title last year and they won it the year before. We were expecting a match race from them.”

However Team CEEREF sailed their own races today. “We got very good starts and were very consistent upwind,” Prosikhin continued. “The boat was tuned very well and going nicely, with good VMG. I am happy with this team - almost the same as in 2015 when we first won the World Championship. We have sailed a lot together and the atmosphere on board is great.”

Team Nika’s tactician Dean Barker is becoming ‘King of Cascais’ having won here with Team Nika in 2015 and this year’s TP52 World Championship. “Cascais has been pretty good to us this year. This week our speed seemed really good, upwind particularly and we put it together over the four days. Our crew work was very solid. We didn’t make any real mistakes. We ripped a couple of sails, but they managed to hold together."

“Three races per day in these conditions is very testing on the crew. Vladimir did an amazing job.”

For Team CEEREF it was a case of ‘not quite’, maintained Igor Lah: “We tried hard, but it didn’t work. We tried all our tricks, but Team Nika was better. We made too many mistakes in the first two days.” 

Bronenosec Sailing Team’s crew suffered near heart failure in the final race when their seventh place to Team Aqua's second almost caused them to lose third overall, ultimately retaining this on countback to Chris Bake’s team. 

Scoring a 1-4-2, Team Aqua was top scoring boat today, showing their previous Championship-winning form. “It was a good day,” agreed a pleased Chris Bake. “We kept it clean, kept it going, had good boat speed and it is nice to prove to the world we have a little bit of competitiveness. Nika sailed really well - they deserved to win.”

Tactician Cameron Appleton was proud of his skipper and how Team Aqua had performed. “We felt we could have been boat of the day yesterday and today. I have a lot of confidence in the guys and the set-up. And today’s conditions were awesome - they ramped up until we had 26 knots in the last race. It was dream conditions and phenomenal racing.”

Elsewhere Hugues Lepic's Aleph Racing and Torbjörn Törnqvist's Artemis Racing both had better days while a sixth place overall for Nico Poons' Charisma was not the result the Monaco-based Dutchman had hoped for to help his prospects for winning the 2018 RC44 Championship.

The RC44 Championship Tour concludes with its final event of the season in Cascais over 14-18th November.

Seven Marine 627

Seven Marine, the premium high-performance outboard engine manufacturer, has gained CE Mark certification for its flagship 627 hp model, enabling the American company to begin selling its top-of-the-range product in Europe.

In response to increased interest in its products from international markets and a growing demand for high-power outboards for larger boats across the globe, the company has gained CE (Conformité Européene) Mark certification – a legislative requirement to conform to health, safety and environmental standards. This designation makes it possible for the Seven 627sv model to be sold within the European Union.

“This is a strong step forward for us in the European market,” says Brian Davis, vice president of Seven Marine. “Since we first exhibited our outboards in Europe in 2016, and following our acquisition by Volvo Penta last year, European boatbuilders have shown a lot of interest in our outboards. We have developed new products and redesigned the 627 model, to continue our pursuit of offering a premium range of high-performance outboards to a broader market. Part of this philosophy involves adhering to the highest standards and we look forward to introducing Seven Marine products to customers in Europe.”

Highest performance, elegant design

External design is important to Seven Marine’s customers. The company’s gasoline outboards are elegant and customizable in different colors and carbon/teak cowl accents, showing that the outboard is an integral part of a boat’s overall aesthetic rather than just being its power source. It is the combination of technology-driven high performance and stylish design that has encouraged several European boatbuilders to select the Seven 627sv for their vessels.

“Our Seven 627sv is a premium outboard engine with a lot customizable options, so the process of discussing what the customers want becomes very personal and special,” says Rick Davis, president of Seven Marine. “Some of the customers have chosen Seven Marine so that they can provide more power, or reduce the number of engines while retaining the same power as before if they are switching from a competitor to our engines. And some have chosen the Seven 627sv because of the ability to make the outboard an integral part of their boat’s overall aesthetic.

Seven Marine designs and produces the most powerful outboard engines in the world.

“We are proud to have such good relationships with the boatbuilders and pleased that some of the Seven Marine-powered boats will be showcased at the Cannes Yachting Festival, Genoa Boat Show and the Monaco Yacht Show, in September.”

Applications to gain CE Mark certification for Seven Marine’s 527 and 577 hp engines are in progress and are expected to be approved in the coming months.
