The search for the missing Stellar Daisy VLOC is to restart tomorrow after a number of days of inactivity due to bad weather. The 1993-built converted ore carrier sank in the South Atlantic on March 30 with just two of the 24 crew rescued.
The owner has said it will shortly enter negotiations with the families of the missing crew over compensation.
“We still believe that they are still alive, we have not found one missing liferaft,” a family member told Splash today.
Polaris has been forced to draft in Lloyd’s Register to help another class society, Korean Register, carry out an urgent fleet check up as another elderly converted VLOC was found to have a crack on its hull days after the Stellar Daisy sank.
