Sure do it was quiet windy that day for sure. At least they got this one of the beach unlike the Sygna that went up on the Stockton beach around 73/74. They managed to get the forward part of but the aft was left because of a tug strike at the time. Finally succumbed to mother nature and rusted away now. As for the Pasher Bulker think that was just a case of bean counters in charge of shipping as I believe that she had discharged ballast as they are not allowed to discharge ballast in port hence being subject to wind like our mate Geoff.
