|Sanko Mineral: A rusting $21 million 'asset'|
'The results of the two incidents are not known but it is evident that the Sanko Mineral cannot proceed at this time and may well be a vessel with neither destination nor home port for the forseeable future.'
A further four months elapsed before the vessel finally departed on May 23rd - but only to another 'bolt hole' off the Lizard peninsula. It appears that serious questions about the vessel and the welfare of the crew had made it expedient to move to pastures new.
A month has passed and our prophetic words still hold true.
