CAUTION ship looses containers

If already posted, please delete.

If you plan on cruising near the approach to the Straight of Juan De Fuca, please be aware of the approximately 40 shipping containers that were lost overboard.

There goes 9,000 cases of Chinese-bottled distilled water for use in boat batteries.

I think it depends on what is inside the containers, if the cargo is lightweight and buoyant they can float forever.

It's still a choppy out there so we'll see if any other ships lose containers.

.24 HOUR FORECAST LOW 46N131W 943 MB. WITHIN 180 NM SE AND 240 NM
S QUADRANTS WINDS 50 TO 60 KT. SEAS 22 TO 45 FT.


SEAS GIVEN AS SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT...WHICH IS THE AVERAGE
HEIGHT OF THE HIGHEST 1/3 OF THE WAVES. INDIVIDUAL WAVES MAY BE
MORE THAN TWICE THE SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
.

Not necessarily. Crowley lost a bunch of containers off one of their PR-FL vessels (I was involved) off the gulf of Florida. They did not sink. Crowley got permission to have the CG do target practice on them with a variety of weapons. They settled in the water but still did not sink. Eventually they drifted to shallow water and had to be lifted out.

Analysis, the contents contained so much volume of polystyrene and air balloon packaging that they would never sink. They instead floated about 6-12" above the water.

Just high enough to do real damage and not high enough to be easily seen.
