Dagbladet): Maritime expert Arne Sagen (83) from the foundation Skagerrak presented their analyzes of "Costa Concordia" -accident, during a press conference in Rome on Friday.

In a lengthy interview tells 83-year-old about how he came into contact with - and has worked with the captain of the ship, Francesco Schettino (55).

The captain was in February this year sentenced to 16 years imprisonment for uaksomt killing of the 32 people who lost their lives when the cruise ship ran aground off the Italian west coast Friday, 13 January 2012.

- Dignity
In an interview in Dagbladet magazine tells the captain about how the accident has affected his life.

Dagbladet talked with Schettino also after the press conference on Friday by telephone from Rome. Schettono wanted then to say a few words about his 83 year old Norwegian friend.

- Arne saw has helped to give the matter dignity, says Schettino.

- And despite the age he is very up to date on all the latest developments in maritime safety. He is very professional, continue captain.

Schettino has appealed the verdict and the case is expected to come up in a higher Italian dish over New Year. Sagen will, according to plan, witnessed for the captain.

Respect for each other
The saw has a background as a sailor and ship inspector and has in recent years worked in particular with maritime safety. He has published several articles on the theme, he says.

It was also in this way he came in contact with Captain Schettino earlier this year.

- After I had read some of what he had written, I got in touch with him, confirms Schettino by telephone from Italy.

And since then the two men in detail gone through what happened that fateful Friday for three years ago.

- We have respect for each other, and I greatly appreciate Arnes against, says Schettino on the Norwegian.

- Could happened other ships
During the press conference in Rome said Sagen that he attended there to support or justify the captain, but that he "was there on behalf cruice ship passengers should not have to risk the same thing repeats itself."

Sagen believe namely that there is too little information about the new electronic navigation systems on a cruise ship.

- During the press conference, I mentioned that there are 300 cruise ship equivalent "Costa Concordia", which still sails, and that the accident could have happened any of these, says Sagen.

- Furthermore, I expressed that I believe the attention in the aftermath of the sinking in for has been largely focused on the captain, and that seen from the outside gets the impression that this focus has gone at the expense of a thorough and objective investigating resolve of how the accident could happen, continues 83-year-old.

Hoping for peace
According to Captain Schettino contains the book he yesterday launched some new documentation about the accident.

- I hope it can contribute to a greater understanding of what it was that happened, he said.

Asked what hopes he has for the future answerers captain:

- I do not know. It depends on how the trial goes. If it goes well, I hope that I can get peace, says the captain.
PARTICIPATED IN PRESS CONFERENCE: During the press conference in Rome yesterday said Sagen that he attended there to support or justify the captain, but that he "was there on behalf cruice ship passengers should not have to risk the same thing repeats itself."

In other boat news... there's Boaty Mcboatface

 

http://www.independe...e-a6942551.html

 

The official name of a new multi-million pound research vessel could be the RRS Boaty McBoatface after the internet was asked for its ideas.When the

Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) opened up suggestions to name their new ship, little could they have predicted what the frontrunner would be. 

Steaming ahead of its rivals, RRS Boaty McBoatface is outstripping the likes of Endeavour, Henry Worsley, David Attenborough, Falcon and many more offerings.

Some other tongue-in-cheek submissions include It’s bloody cold here, Usain Bolt, Ice Ice Baby and Notthetitanic.

The £200 million polar research vessel, which will be operational in 2019, is set to sail the waters of Antarctica and the Arctic carrying a team of 90 scientists and support staff. 

In a statement NERC said: “Tonne-for-tonne, the ship - together with NERC's existing two blue water research ships - will provide the UK with the most advanced floating research fleet in the world and will help put the UK at the forefront of ocean research for years to come.”

NERC was looking for a name to reflect the ship's prowess in the oceans, symbolising the pioneering work they will undertake.

When thinking of submissions, they advised: “We're looking for an inspirational name that exemplifies the work it will do. 

“The ship could be named after a local historical figure, movement, or landmark - or a famous polar explorer or scientist.

“We would like the name to be inspirational and about environmental and polar science, to help us tell everyone about the amazing work the ship does.”

So naturally Boaty McBoatyface, suggested by communications manager James Hand – who later tweeted an apology for his input – is the most popular choice. 

The competition to name the 128 metre long royal research ship was launched a month ago, with the deadline for voting on April 16. 

Due to overwhelming interest the website has periodically crashed due to unusually high volumes of traffic, presumably from fans of Boaty McBoatface. 

A twitter account has even been set up under the handle, encouraging people to get on board with the name. 

But despite its fame – allegedly picking up more than 15,000 votes - there is no guarantee the name will grace the side of the ship. 

Anchored in the terms and conditions, the website states ‘the final name will be selected by NERC.’

It is almost as if someone thought ahead of what could happen when you have an online public vote.

Sorry, that really c&p'd like shit


Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

— Matthew 6:19–21,24 (KJV)
