79. On 25 August 1994, SALLY STAR, a Bahamian Registered Ro-Ro passenger
ferry was en route to Ramsgate from Dunkirk and in a position about 6.5 miles
east of Ramsgate when fire broke out in the main engine room. The fire was
caused by the failure of a bolted flange joint on the low pressure fuel system to No
4 main engine, allowing flammable fuel oil vapour to come into contact with part
of the engine exhaust system. Initial attempts to extinguish the fire were
unsuccessful, mainly due to failure of the auxiliary generators and the emergency
fire pump and despite the injection of Kalongs into the space. However, the
closure of the engine room ventilation and fuel oil systems effectively starved the
fire of fuel and oxygen. The fire was finally reported as extinguished about three
hours from the onset of the emergency. The incident required the co-ordinating
role of HM Coastguard Dover, off-shore fire fighting teams from Kent Fire
Brigade, RAF and HM Coastguard helicopters. A total of 85 non-essential crew
and 17 passengers were transferred ashore by RNLI lifeboats based at Ramsgate
and Margate. Tugs and other vessels stood by the SALLY STAR which was finally
towed to Dunkirk for repairs. One crew member suffered an injury during fire
fighting operations and was evacuated ashore by helicopter.

261. A ship at rest will safely lie to an anchor streamed over the bow. Two anchors
are normally carried, although some ships which operate in river trades or the St.
Lawrence Seaway also ship a stern anchor that will enable the ship to be anchored
safely in a narrow channel where there is insufficient room to swing. Anchors will
normally have two flukes, which are blades that will dig into the sea bed and,
along with the anchor chain cable, provide sufficient force to hold the vessel at
rest. On a very large ship the anchor may weigh in excess of 100 tonnes. The cable
itself is enormously heavy, so it is clear that the windlass capable of lifting this off
the sea bottom must be an enormously powerful winch. Windlasses are typically
powered by steam or electricity, geared heavily so that the maximum amount of
lift is provided, with the chain grasped in a special wheel or gypsy that stops the
chain from slipping. Once off the bottom, the windlass lifts the anchor until it is
housed in its hawse pipe and secured.
According to the passage, it isnt true that;
a) the anchor may weight up to 100 tones
b) flukes are blades which dig into the sea bottom
c) all ships carry two anchors
d) to handle the anchor on board a ship, mostly a windlass is used
e) anchor chain flows through the hawse pipe

377. A coaster was on a journey in a fjord. Early in the morning, when the ship
was to change course, she collided with a small lighthouse. The reason why the
collision took place is unknown. The foundation of the lighthouse was circular
with a flat top just underneath the water surface. Its diameter was bigger than the
diameter of the lighthouse itself, situated right on top of the foundation. This
construction causes a rather sharp outer edge, which could easily rip a ship's hull.
This was what happened - the ship's hull was ripped open and she sank within
minutes. Two persons on the bridge died. Two other crew members survived
although they could not reach the survival suits which were kept under port bridge
wing as the ship immediately listed to port and put them out of reach. One of the
survivors managed to launch the starboard life raft. Another crew member was
down in the mess room and threw out a couple of life jackets. He did not manage
to get out of the mess room. The investigation found that the hydrostatic releases
to the rafts had not been properly mounted. If the starboard side raft had not been
launched manually, no raft would have been released.
