Thanks, Wolfgang. That looks like very serious damage.

Well, this looks "slightly rotten". Not only the damages but the whole construction. I am quite happy that our last journey with the Neptune on 30th. April with high waves did not end like that. I hope that the Anendyk will replace the boat now by a larger one.

Best wishes
Simon

We were told that the Neptune's timbers were all replaced a couple of years ago. We were also told – before the accident – that ANENDYK have bought at least one new boat. But it will apparently have to be adapted to the Sfakian ports before it can go into service.

Indeed, some of the keel looked to be rotting wood. This was easiest to see where the rudder housing had been separated from the stern. It does not look like an easy or quick fix. Much of the keel has been damaged, bow to stern.
