A Cargo Ship Lost in the Atlantic Prompts a Flurry of Questions

Worn out hatch covers , and the ships age were the two biggest reasons the Marine Electric sank. The manufacturer of the hatch covers told the ships owers they needed to be replaced, but they weren’t. They had been patched , and re patched, but the rough Seas finally caused the hatches to fail, one by one. That ship should have been retired, and broken up at least 20 year earlier. When profit Overrides safety, disaster usually follows.

The ship was unseaworthy and it’s paperwork was fraudulent.

Made a cuppa coffee and settled in to find out why … the story sank as quickly as the ship. Um, part 2?
