I am indebted to the 'Grim Snapper' for providing me with information regarding the Sanko Mineral which is underway at very low speed in Babbacombe Bay.
Apparently the reason why the vessel is underway is that whilst moving, the vessel won't be prone to dragging its anchor or be under threat from other vessels doing likewise.
I am also informed that the Sanko Mineral will be sailing some time tomorrow
as she is due to arrive in Falmouth at 1000 on Sunday – presumably to take
bunkers and fresh water.
What her destination is after that is open to question, both the Grim Snapper and myself will not be surprised if she returns to take up station off Maidencombe once again.
