Comment on UNITED VICTORY – 1944 – IMO 5075945 by Webmariner http://7seasvessels.com/united-victory-1944-imo-000000/#comment-8304 Sat, 01 Nov 2014 02:10:47 +0000 http://7seasvessels.com/?p=141367#comment-8304 Information on the Victory class:

By 1943 the Maritime Commission was planning the production of a number of new types of ships, including a fast type of cargo ship which eventually became known as the Victory Ship. The initial designation was EC2-S-AP1.

Designed to use either the Lentz engine, turbines or diesel, its expected speed would be 15-17 knots compared to the Liberty ships at 11 knots. The hull lines were changed to accommodate the higher speeds, design features were added to prevent hull fractures and the auxiliary equipment would be electric powered instead of steam. In April 1944 the prefix was changed to VC2 and the general title Victory Ship was adopted.

The first Victory ship was the UNITED VICTORY being delivered by the Oregon Shipyard on 28 February, 1944, making her first voyage the following month.

Initial deliveries were slow and, by May 1944, only fifteen of the ships had been delivered. On 14 August 1945, the commission cancelled the contracts for 132 vessels, including 42 Victory ships. The Maritime Commission constructed 414 Victory cargo ships and 117 Victory transports, a total of 531 ships, plus 3 more converted to carry passengers as well as cargo.

Comment on PACIFIC DUCHESS – 1980 – IMO 7905039 by Webmariner http://7seasvessels.com/pacific-duchess-1980-imo-7905039/#comment-7543 Sat, 04 Oct 2014 01:09:20 +0000 http://7seasvessels.com/?p=5567#comment-7543 Reefer KESHAN or TIANTAI disappeared in the Antarctic

Early on Sunday 30 March, AMSA Australia detected the emergency beacon signal in the Southern Indian Ocean near Antarctica around 3,241 km southwest of Perth and 648 km north of the Antarctic mainland in the Australian Search and Rescue Region.

AMSA tasked a civil jet and a RAAF P3 Orion to locate the vessel. The vessel was not located but debris was seen in the location of the beacon signal. There were no signs of a life raft or people in the water.

Based on this the RCC has concluded that either a considerable amount of deck equipment including the EPIRB has been swept overboard in rough weather and the vessel has continued passage but remains unable to be contacted and search aircraft were unable to locate it, or the vessel foundered and all crew entered the water at around the time the emergency beacon was detected.

Weather in the area has included sea swells of up to seven meters, winds of up to 70km/h, air temperature of -17C and water temperatures between zero and two C.

Expert medical advice indicated that even under the best circumstances, namely the crew abandoning ship into a dry life raft, there is no prospect of survival. Search was suspended on Mar 31.

Due to discrepancies in the ships records AMSA has been unable to establish an owner, flag state, or what the vessel’s purpose was in this area. Indications are the vessel may have been involved in illegal fishing activities. It is understood the beacon is registered to a 75-metre Tanzanian-flagged fishing support vessel.

Vesseltracker.com figured out the vessel in question is reefer KESHAN, IMO 7905039, dwt 2144, built 1980, flag Tanzania, owner/manager unknown, vessel marked as “sold undisclosed interest”.

According to Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources ccamlr.org, vessel was renamed in Aug 2013 to Tiantai. Judging from CCAMLR data and the character of AIS signals, vessel most probably, was (or is) involved in illegal fishing. AIS was randomly switched on/off, sending uncompleted and misleading data.

I have always believed that some of it first voyages were carrying Baltic timber to the Wansborough Paper Mill at Watchet in Somerset UK . I was brought up a few miles to the West in Minehead, but was only 4 or 5 years old at the time at the time of her reputed trips to Watchet!

We were very proud of “our boat” as later it was one of the supply ships for Fuchs and Hillary’s motorised crossings of Antarctica in 1958. Their book, “The Crossing of Antarctica: The Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Exhibition” published by Penguin Books in 1960 (first published by Cassell in 1958) contains several references to Magga Dan, and beautiful colour and monchrome pictures of her unloading at Shackleton Base.

I hope that you will find this information useful.
