No Kev I have tried to run the text through babelfish but its not working properly. Looks like they are trying to organise her salvage and repair with the insurers and say it will seriously delay her completion

Yes she was run down by the Strilmoy and she was one of the 86ft Spinningdale class boats built by Lewis ( my complete list is in the requests & research section )

Got a limited translation now

A newly built trawler doesn't look so new farther.

That now lies with the bottom up in the Skaw harbour after an unsuccessful sea-sentence.

The ship capsized on Monday evening about 20:00.00, were launched after a month-long rebuilding.

Manager at Karstensens Skibsværft, Knud Degn Karstensen, informs to jp.dk that one not yet has found the cause of the capsizing.

When the fishing boat took a list and capsized, there were three employees on board.

They however got over in a likely tugboat without drama.

Looks for the cause

The ship now lies with the bottom up, surrounded by a float-barring in order to prevent pollution.

Back for the shipyard now is to find the cause of the accident as well as repair the damages the involuntary waterline has brought about.

The trawler is built on a core structure, who was eased from Poland to the Skaw in January.

Since then the shipbuilding yard has made the trawler, but ready not made something, who gives an explanation at the capsizing, Knud Degn Karstensen informs.

Oh boy , the only thing is the Ocean Harvester is obviously no where near ready for delivery in a months time ( far too light ) so here's hoping the delivery date was pushed back and the damage isn't as bad as first thought

Both hulls only got delivered to the yard in the last 2 weeks so hopefully neither will have engines fitted so the damage done should be easily repairable if that is the case.

The engines were fitted at the yard that built the hulls so her engines are written off , BUT , heard today that they have already got replacement engines ( there were spare in Denmark ) and they only expect a delay of 4-5 weeks so looking like a delivery of June/July

You can see where they have repaired the hull so looking a lot better than the last photo we saw of her

WOW what a pair of ships , you can still see where the repair to the Harvester was done but so what I would think the boat will not have any problems now.

All the best for the skippers and I hope they fill both boats as soon as they get started.

Well done Karstensens on delivering 2 fantastic new builds for the Peterhead fleet

I have contacted the yard to ask their permission to post a photo of each boat , hopefully we will get permission

Kent Damgaard has granted us permission to host 2 of their photos of these trawlers which are now in the Vessels under Construction section.
