Ik vond in mijn archief een oud raport waar iemand misschien nog wat aan heeft of wat van kan leren hoe het niet moet.

Ship Casualty Incident Report
May 6, 1983
Mr .K. R. Ghandi, Manager, Operations Gladstone Shipping Company 345 Merriwether Lane, Bombay, India
Dear Sir:
It is with regret and haste that I write this letter to you; regret that
such a small misunderstanding could lead to the following circumstances, and haste in order that you will get this report before you form your own pre-conceived opinions from reports in the world press, for I am sure that they will tend to over dramatize the affair .
We had just picked up the pilot, and the cadet had returned from changing the G flag for the H (Pilot aboard), and being his first trip was having difficulty in rolling the G flag up. I therefore proceeded to show him how, coming to the last part I told him to let go. The lad, although willing, is not
too bright, necessitating my having to repeat the order in a sharper tone.
At this moment the Chief Officer appeared from the Chart room, having been plotting the vessel's progress and thinking that it was the anchors to which I was referring, repeated the let go to the Third Officer on the
forecastle. The port anchor, having been cleared away but not walked out, was promptly let go. The effect of letting the anchor drop from the pipe while the vessel was proceeding at full harbor speed proved too much for the windlass brake and the entire length of the port chain to the bitter end
was pulled out by the roots. I fear that the damage to the chain locker
may be extensive. The braking effect of the port anchor naturally caused the vessel to sheer in that direction, right towards a swing bridge that spans a tributary to the river up which we were proceeding.
Although the swing bridge operator showed great presence of mind by opening the bridge for my vessel, he unfortunately did not think to stop the vehicular traffic attempting to cross the bridge. The result of that miscalculation on his part was that the bridge partly opened and deposited a Volkswagen van, two bicyclists, and a cattle truck upon the foredeck of my vessel. My ship's company are at present rounding up the contents of the latter, which from the noise I would say were pigs. In his efforts to stop
the progress of the vessel, the Third Officer dropped the starboard anchor as well, too late to be of practical use for it fell on the swing bridge Operator’s control cabin.
After the port anchor was let go and the vessel started to sheer, I gave a double ring full astern on the Engine Room Telegraph, and personally rang the engine room to order maximum astern revolutions. I was informed that the sea temperature was 53 degrees and was asked if there was to be a film tonight. My reply would not constructively add to this report.
Up to now I have confined my report to the activities at the forward end of my vessel: back aft they were having their own problems. At the moment that the port anchor was let go, the Second Officer was supervising the making fast of the after tug and was lowering the ship's towing line down onto the tug.
The sudden braking effect of the port anchor caused the tug to "run in
under" the stern counter of my vessel just at the moment when the engine room answered my double ring for Full Astern. Due to the tug captain's inattention to his duty, the tug came into contact with the propeller and it
was on1y the prompt action of the Second Officer in securing the inboard end of the towing line that delayed the sinking of the tug for some minutes thereby a1lowing the safe abandoning of that vessel.
It is strange, but at the very same moment of letting go the port anchor , there was a power outage ashore. The fact that we were passing over a "cable area" in the river at that time may suggest that we may have touched something on the river bed. It is perhaps lucky that the high tension
cables brought down by the ship's foremast were not live, possibly being replaced by the underwater cable. But owing to the shore blackout it is impossible to say where the cable towers fell which was probably due to faulty workmanship of the construction of the towers in the first place.
It never fails to amaze me when I witness the actions and behavior of foreigners during moments of minor crisis. The pilot, for instance, is at
this moment huddled in the comer of my day cabin, a1temately crooning to himself and crying after having consumed a bottle of gin in a time that is worthy of inclusion in the Guinness Book of Records. The tug captain, on the other hand reacted violently and had to be forcibly restrained by the Steward, who has him handcuffed in the ship's hospital where he is telling me to do impossible things with my ship and my person.
I enclose the names and address of the drivers of the vehicles on my
foredeck and their insurance companies which the Third Officer collected after his somewhat hurried evacuation of the forecastle. These particulars should prove invaluable in enabling you to claim for the damage that they
did to the Ship's railings and the coamings of number one hold and of course for the expense of the cleanup of the residue left behind by the pigs who were a bit unnerved by their sudden release from confinement.
I am closing this preliminary report, for I am finding it difficult to
concentrate with the sound of police sirens and their flashing lights.
It is sad to think that this little mishap could have been avoided entirely had the cadet rea1ized that their is no need to fly pilot flags after dark.

For weekly Accountability Report I will assign the following Casualty Numbers T/750l0l T/750l99 inclusive.
Yours respectfully,
Master

Ja, dat is een hele mooie.
Er is nog eentje die ik nog wel eens een keer zou willen lezen. Dat is die "Engelse" brief van een Duitse koffiehandelaar die klaagt dat er telkens weer rattenkeutels in de koffie zitten. "Rat shit business" heet dat stuk. Hij wil graag dat de koffie en de keutels voortaan apart worden geleverd, dat is makkelijker.

Stond dit verhaal niet ook op nautiek.nl?
