November 13th 2011: Detained in Sheerness for six days because the hours of rest were not available for the chief and second engineer since March (before the previous Master) in addition the deficiencies marked ISM are objective evidence of a serious failure or lack of the implementation of the International Safety Management (ISM) code. Other deficiencies identified: included, the embarkation steps were broken; there were temporary guard rails; the hand rails were corroded and holed; the cleanliness of the engine room and steering rooms was insufficient; and there was excessive hydraulic oil in numerous 45 gallon drums on the deck. The vessel was released from detention on 18 November 2011.
