Now its bad enough if you hit a single piece of wood ,never mind a full pack .
On the good side keep an eye on the for sale section in the local papers where the wood has washed up ,
                                                                       

                                                                  FOR SALE
                                                        timber in varous lengths
                                                               slightly salted
                                                           but well preserved

Rough seas are nothing new. Ships carrying timber are nothing new. What is new is the crappiness of security of deck cargo.
Most professional seafarers that were trained in this country knew all about the dangers (both physical and stability-wise) of deck cargoes.....particularily "timber" ones. For reasons too complicated to go into here, it would be accepted that a ship with a deck cargo of timber would arrive at it's destination port with a "list" (some small, some massive). Although primitive compared to modern practice the securing systems worked. Side caging and secure lashing. Simple. I will go back to the opening sentence. Rough seas are nothing new. Modern practice has to learn from the past, and get it right again. BY.

Olly,

That statement does not really make sense, if it's marine ply and damaged by water must be rubbish ply :} :}

Sinegorsk? Either the ship or the cargo are Russian.

We thought about taking the council van along the coast today and loading it up with timber, could always claim we are part of the clean up crew. Didn't have enough diesel in the tank though... >>:-(
