Distressed vessel reaches
More than 400 passengers and crew of an inter-island vessel that encountered engine trouble Monday midnight at the Tañon Strait, between Cebu and Negros Oriental, returned to the port of Dumaguete City, all safe and sound yesterday.
The Coast Guard Station in Dumaguete said M/V Georich of the George and Peter Lines left the Dumaguete port at around 11 p.m. Monday en route to Cebu. At around 1:27 a.m., one of its engines malfunctioned, causing it to drift some 3.2 nautical miles off Alcoy, Cebu.
PO2 Aldwin Chan of the Coast Guard quoted Crisologo Carollo, the captain of M/V Georich, as saying that in an assessment conducted by ship engineer Armando Baes, the turbo of auxiliary engine #2 had malfunctioned.
