Close quarters between fishing vessel and ro-ro-ferry outside Stromstad

Date of occurrence: 2014-11-30

In the fairway from Stromstad a close quarters situation took place between the inbound fishing vessel TITANIA and the outbound ro-ro-ferry BOHUS.

BOHUS was far out on the port side of the fairway. Despite attempts at evasive action the ships came to pass each other at a distance of only a few dozen meters.

SHK has assessed the occurrence as a very serious marine incident.
