Cougar Ace abandoned off Alaskan coast

As the title says, the Cougar Ace cargo ship registered in Signapore and owned by Tokyo based Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, was abandoned Monday night/Teusday morning. The vessel was carrying 4,813 vehicles bound for Vancouver.

There is no news of the ship sinking but does anyone know what make of vehicles these were?

Well, the ship was not abondoned - it was stranded. From the sound of your orig. post made it sound as though they left willingly.

Re: Cougar Ace abandoned off Alaskan coast

Either way the ship is listing 90 degrees and leaking oil. I would consider it abandoned. Stranded I would say involves the ship sitting upright in an undisturbed way... but we are just arguing semantics here.

Re: Cougar Ace abandoned off Alaskan coast

I hope no one in Canada was getting a late 2006 model Mazda.

It might be delayed 3 or 4 months (so they can make a new one). Supposing there were Mazdas on that ship. Strapped down or not, I don't think the cars are going to make it through that okay...supposing the ship doesn't just sink.
