Post Date: 09/03/2021

Container ship was disabled, adrift after reportedly, collision, in South China sea. The ship seemed to be under way at 5 knots speed as of 0800 UTC Mar 9, proceeding by changing courses. Collision understood to take place at around 0200 UTC Mar 9. She might be seriously damaged judging from track, changing courses and proceeding at slow speed, probably in order to cope with collision consequences. Her adversary’s ID unknown so far, no other ships spotted in the vicinity.
