Remember the container ship the good ship MSC Napoli that was dumped in Lyme Bay off the coast near Branscombe in early 2007 and disgorged hundreds of full containers on the beaches?

Well another container ship of the same company is in difficulties off the Scilly Isles and is looking for a safe haven. http://www.itv.com/news/westcountry/2012-08-01/bad-weather-hampers-operation-to-put-out-ship-fire/. ‘Once the hotspots are dealt with, a decision will be made on moving the vessel to a coastal area’. Near you!

I am already investigating what could be in those containers this time. BMW motor bikes featured in those of the Napoli so perhaps a Harley or two may be coming our way. Unfortunately my two daughters who sailed on this very ship, but fortunately not in July, from Charleston to Antwerp in February tell me that most of the containers could be empty returns as the USA doesn’t export very much.

BMW parts are still washing up on Lyme beach! How about some Land Rover spares next time?
