Two tugs hit by cement carrier, half-sunk, Tasmania CORRECTION Video

CORRECTION: The second tug hit by GOLIATH, severely damaged and now half-submerged, si a sister tug CAMPBELL COVE (IMO 7606023). I made a mistake in identifying second tug, because according to one AIS, tug was and still is, in Brisbane, another AIS service is missing CAMPBELL COVE since 2020. Hence the mistake, sorry.

Jan 28: Cement carrier GOLIATH contacted berthed tugs YORK COVE and WILGA at Devonport, Tasmania, at around 0045 UTC Jan 28, while maneuvering to berth, on arrival from Melbourne. Both tugs were damaged with ensuing water ingress, YORK COVE is already partially submerged with her portside hull crushed in midshipsection area. GOLIATH completed berthing after accident, understood she went out of control during maneuvering, cause unknown.
