A tanker was at anchor. The on-signing crew boarded via the combination pilot ladder and gangway. As the fifth crew was boarding, he stepped from the pilot ladder onto the lower platform of the accommodation ladder but then slipped and fell into the water.
A tanker in ballast dropped anchor and six shackles of chain in the early evening to await a berth for loading. Once at the anchor station, the personnel realized that the vessel was not dragging anchor, but that the anchor had been lost.
While at berth, a water leak was suspected in the boiler/economiser so it was shut down for inspection. They identified a leaky boiler tube and plugged it from the bottom. Hot water, steam and smoke poured out from the boiler water drum and covered the fitter.
