Knysna ‘Shipwreck’ and Oil Spill Timeline — 6 Comments

  1. Many thanks for this update Mike. Incidentally, the twin island nation you refer to in the Caribbean is not Antigua-Barbados, but Antigua-Barbuda. Barbuda and Barbados are quite different animals.

    • Thank you for pointing out that i’m getting old:) I was typing from memory and undoubtedly childhood excitement at tales of Bermuda Triangle affected me – ha ha. Thanks, i will correct now.

  2. Thanks for the update. Please keep us all posted as things unfold. This could be a terrible tragedy for this beautiful piece of coastline that is a refuge for many species

  3. GOOD DAY,I CAN ONLY WONDER WHY THE SUPPORT VESSELS IN MOSSELBAY WERE NOT SCRAMBLED TO ASSIST, WHE THE TOW LINES PARTED? IT TAKES SOME TIME TO DRIFT FROM MOSSELBAY TO BUFFALO BAY. LUCKILY THE GOOD CREWS NOW BUSY SHALL ENDEAVOR THEIR GOOD WORK. REGARDS GLENN. PS LETS HOPE FOR AN OIL FREE BEACH SOON.

    • I don’t know. There are hanging questions which i’m sure will be answered. If i’m correct, they were off Walker’s Bay when near Mosselbay. Walker’s Point is in Knysna. The names were getting mixed up in the media.
