Global Star now even a conspiracy theory about the vessel

I just found this story about the tanker Glabal Star, which recently evaded detention at Weymouth a week or two ago.
The tanker, manned by a Russian crew for her delivery to Alang, seemed to have caused a bit of a stir.
The following is taken from a site called, so you can either believe it or not, upto you.

So a the vessel is built as a tanker I am sure they would find it difficult modify the ship to carry things like missiles
out of view in such a short time since leaving the south coast of the UK. But I did read that missiles were taken off
the Thor Liberty in finland.

Quote from website

This ship has disappeared in the Mediterranean at the co-ordinates listed below. It had close contact to the Thor Liberty off Portugal and may have picked up portions of her cargo including explosives and Patriot missiles. This vessel was scheduled for scrapping in Alang, India. There is no reason for its voyage to become anonymous unless it is on a covert mission for the intelligence services to deliver weapons to the Middle East to facilitate a false flag event to start a conflict between Iran and Israel or the U.S. 
Global Star made an impromtu course change Monday night Tuesday morning meeting Fehn Sky which left El Ferrol the Spanish naval port. A company at the port Dockwise has a contract to dismantle two Russian nuclear submarines. Canada has a supervisory role over the program and a Canadian naval officer has been arrested recently for espionage. We are concerned about the possible transfer of nuclear materials to the Middle East.
It is IMPERATIVE that this vessel be located and tracked. It should be transiting the Suez Canal at about this time. Anyone with contacts along the route are encouraged to ask them to be on the look out for it. Another possibilty is that the ship diverted to Israel. Wherever it is it is certain that it is up to no good. There is no reason a soon to be wrecked ship should be treated as an active naval vessel cloaked in secrecy.


I think it's a load of tosh, and Elvis is even steering the ship also.

Ship demolitions

Please note that the date that appears on the headings of the post does not indicate that it is the date that the ship got beached or scrapped. It could be upto a few months before they arrive to be broken up, in one case 12 months.

The posting date just indicates when the information was obtained and uploaded. Websites like Equasis give the date of which the ship was sold for scrap, but there may be other website that give the final beaching dates.

If there is any inaccuracy in the data i have put on this site,"" please comment"", and only if the information is correct you are commenting on, and the posting will be corrected.

All information on this blog is gathered from various sources in the UK, Europe, and the Far East and I rely on their accuracy, which i have found not always the case, including final beaching destinations, names etc. I have tried hard to find the correct information, and where I have been unsuccessful I have not posted the information on this site.

Global Star departs despite detention

Global Star, which MCA inspectors described as the worst ship they had ever seen left Weymouth
despite being told to stay put. It arrived in Weymouth low on fuel, but the captain was unable to pay,
but the ship eventualy did refuel. To run out of fuel is a major non-conformity and the ship was
subject to Port State Control.

The Global Star was given a detention order but it jumped that order and has continued on
its journey. It is believed the ship left early on Jan 15 morning.

Because the ship has been given detention orders from other ports in the past, it will be banned
from any future visits in Europe. But as was heading to be scrapped, the crew probably took the
decision that it didn’t matter. 14 crew members were on board the vessel when it left.

Tanker en route to Alang runs out of fuel

Mt Global Star was forced to anchor off the southern British coast near Weymouth after running
out of fuel on 11/1/2012 en route to Alang. The tanker has 14 Russian crew onboard. It got as
far as Portland before running out of fuel and crawled into Weymouth..

It was believed initially the captain was unable to pay for fuel and the ship had docked whilst awaiting
for funds to arrive, the money for the fuel eventually arrived and the tanker went into bunkering
anchorage at Portland.

A Maritime Coastguard Agency surveyor went aboard before refuelling to carry out a statutory inspection.
The tanker was expected to leave after refuelling was completed.

Vinalines Queen missing along with 22 crew

Vietnam’s Vinalines Queen [VN] IMO 9290907 cargo ship that disappeared off the Philippines on
Dec. 25 sunk and only one sailor has been rescued while the 22 others are still missing, the
Vietnam Maritime Rescue Coordination Center announced.

The sailor saved is Dau Ngoc Hung, said the Vietnam Maritime Rescue Coordination Center.

Britain’s London Courage ship en route to Singapore found him on a life raft at sea at 10:30 AM Friday,
about 350 kilometers from to the ship’s last known site.

The Vietnam center said it managed to make satellite phone calls to the survivor and a call got through
at 3:20 PM. He said the Vietnamese ship sank at 7 AM on Dec. 25 because of an incline to the left.

He said the ship sank immediately and all sailors could do was to release only one life raft, and he was
the only one to escape. Hung said he was drifted until the British ship saved his life.

Hung is 31 years old, a resident of the central province of Nghe An. He was on the life raft for six days.

The Vietnam Maritime Rescue Coordination Center says it has appealed maritime rescue agencies of
the Philippines, Japan and Taiwan for help to search for missing sailors from the Vinalines Queen

According to the Vietnamese shipping corporation Vinalines, the ship was carrying more than 54,000 tons
of nickel ore and was traveling from Indonesia’s Morowali Port to Ningde Port in China when it lost contact.

TK Bremen to be broken up on beach

The Maltese-registered cargo ship, TK Bremen, which ran aground off the coast of Brittany during December
in high winds and torrential rain now looks set to be scrapped where it lies.

Preliminary inspections indicated that the vessel, built in 1982, is too badly damaged to be towed back to sea.

A spokesman for the maritime prefecture said: “We can’t take the risk of towing it, as there is a danger of it
breaking up and becoming more difficult to remove.

“Strictly-speaking, the shipowner has the right to repair the vessel where it lies,” he added, “but it appears
it struck several rocks and its hull has been perforated in several places.

“The most probable outcome is that the ship will be dismantled.”

The 19 crew members on board the TK Bremen were airlifted to safety by helicopter and booms deployed
to contain an oil spill threatening a nearby beach.

The task of emptying the stricken ship’s tanks of their 220 tonnes of fuel could be completed by the end of the week.

The maritime prefecture spokesman said dismantling the TK Bremen would be a complex operation in
what is an environmentally-protected zone. The ship would be cut up and the pieces loaded onto trucks.

“The objective is to restore the beach and the dunes by [next year’s] Easter holidays,” he added.

The TK Bremen left the Brittany port of Lorient en route to the UK as the storm was gaining strength, and
dropped anchor off the nearby Isle de Groix to wait for an improvement in the weather. However, the ship
was unable to maintain its mooring in the storm and began drifting towards the coast.
