    Default Vision II BF190 - men lost in fire

    This is awful news and our thoughts go out to those lost and to their families and friends. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/...st/7536547.stm

    Vision II does not seem to appear in the EU Fleet Register or the UK Fishing Vessel list and no photgraphs appear on this site. Have the BBC got the name right?

    From the story you link to it seems her name had been Amethyst BF19 and she must have been sold and being renamed.

    Our thoughts must be with the families of the crewmen who have died in this fire.

    Pictures have just appeared on BBC news and they show the vessel carrying the registration BF19, presumably this is not the BF19 Amethyst recently seen in the Macduff shipyard.

    She must have been in the process of changing not only her name from Amethyst to Vision II but also her port registration number BF19.

    It'll be fully investigated and the findings will be on the MAIB website in due course. Like most things we may find it could have been avoided. Stay safe folks.
