2000 – The vessel is M/V Han Se, under the Panamanian flag. She sank on the 8th of April and righted on the 13th of April. Thereafter she was brought to a dock yard for repairs. www.cargolaw.com




In 1984,  the owners of the  MSC Carla  lengthened the ship by 15 metres. This was accomplished by cutting the vessel in

two and welding in a lengthening module. On 24th November 1997, en route to Boston from LeHavre, the MSC Carla encountered heavy weather and broke apart along the line of the aft weld. The forepart sank over a period of five days. The stern was towed to Spain where it was scrapped.
