The crew members of the Corail were evidently scared. From the night of Tuesday 9 August to Wednesday 10 August, the 35-meter-long fishing vessel reportedly boarded on a 366-meter container vessel named the Ain Snan Express.
The individual who was at the helm would’ve tried avoiding a freighter, in the descending track of the Ouessant rail, and would’ve probably steered the trawler to the starboard, slowly leading it onto Ain Snan Express. Its bow was sunk owing to the effect.
On the side of the container vessel flying the Marshall Islands flag, a breach six meters in length by a meter-wide hull, and about 3.50 meters above its waterline, was noted. No other damages or injuries were observed on the two vessels.
Le Corail, constructed back in 1998 in Concarneau, was departing for a 24-day fishing trip to the west of Scotland. Bow repairs are likely to take between three weeks and one month.
The boat, owned by the Lorient ship-owner Scapêche and registered in Concarneau must be taken out of the water and hoisted onto the slipway on 11 August.
Everyone was scared, recalls Jérémy Mouli, the boss of the Corail, at the port of Concarneau where the vessel reached without any assistance, on Wednesday.
