Our good feiwend John Konrad of the great gCaptain site sent us the following email. It’s certainly worth clicking the clicks:
Our friend Professor Kurt Schwehr helped us with some of the initial AIS analysis and has compiled the radar images of the incident on his blog. Take a look: http://schwehr.org/blog/archives/2008-09.html#e2008-09-19T10_39_48.txt
Meanwhile, John Upton of the San Francisco Examiner give us an update on the Cosco Busan detainees here:
http://www.sfexaminer.com/local/Cosco_Busan_pilot_wants_Chinese_crew_members_kept_in_US.html John is the only journalist - indeed the only person in 'liberal' San Francisco, taking an interest in the situation regarding the Cosco Busan detainees, who haven't been charged but are being held as 'material witnesses' contrary to the IMO's upcoming code of conduct and internationally recognised fair treatment of seafarers. Maybe the detainees have reason to wonder why 'freedom fries' are so called.
