Ship Events Data

2012-03-25: The Gas Arctic, LPG tanker currently in ballast, registered in Malta was on passage from Tees to Portland, with 14 crew aboard. The SPRING BOK, cargo ship, registered in the Netherlands was on passage from Amsterdam to Oranjestad, Aruba, with 22 crew aboard. The vessels collided this morning when visibility was less than half a mile. Dover Coastguard requested the launch of the Dungeness all weather lifeboat and the assistance of HMS Tyne which was transiting the Strait. The SPRING BOK arriving at Portland UK for temporary repairs to shell plating after a minor collision during poor visibility in the English Channel yesterday morning at 10:15 hrs UTC in position lat 50 47.5 N, long 00 57 E with the tanker GAS ARCTIC. The ships were both damaged above the water line but did not have to end their journeys. At a hearing on Oct 30, 2012, at Southampton Magistrates Court, the master of the "Spring Bok" pleaded guilty to three offences brought under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1974, as amended (Colregs), and fined £1500 plus costs of £1000. On Mar 24 the vessel was on passage from Rotterdam to Aruba and was traveling in the South West lane of the Dover Straits Traffic Separation Scheme. A small liquid gas carrier was also heading south west and traveling at 7-8 knots while the Spring Bok was transiting at 18-20 knots. At approximately 1014 utc, the "Spring Bok" ran into the stern of the gas Carrier. An investigation into the collision was started. Captain Robert Koningstein was the Officer of the Watch of the "Spring Bok". The visibility in the Dover Straits had been poor but had improved to about 2.5 miles off Dungeness. After the visibility had increased he had sent the lookout down. His son and brother-in-law were on the bridge also but not in any official capacity. Captain Koningstein admitted that he had seen the "Gas Artic" some 20 minutes before the collision. However he had no recollection of seeing it again until it appeared from behind the forward cranes moments before the collision. A more serious collision was avoided by the actions of the Master of the gas carrier who saw the approaching "Spring Bok" and altered course immediately in order to avoid the collision. Robert Koningstein pleaded guilty to three charges brought under the Merchant Shipping (Distress Signals and Prevention of Collision) Regulations 1996. These were a failure to keep a good lookout, a failure to ascertain that risk of collision existed and a failure to keep clear of a vessel being overtaken.
