Follow Up from last year – M/V Friendship
A Post over at the Monitor brought me back to this post from Last year. In July of last year, the MV Friendship Was tied up at Pier31, and appeard to be loading telephone poles. – rather when she tied up, she was subjected to a State Port Control Inspection.
Port state control inspections are semi random safety inspections, and any defecencies found must be rectified before the vessel is allowed to proceed to the Next port. Have a look at the PDF of what was found.

Suction Dredge HAM 318
The Training Suction Hopper Dredge HAM 318 made a stop this weekend for supplies. Trailing suction dredges work by dragging 2 suction heads on the ocean floor, which work material loose and vacumes it into the hoppers on board.
Dredgings can be discharged via Depositing through doors in the Hull, Pumping via a pipe attached to the bow, or Rainbowing where dredge material is pumped out of a monitor on the Bow.
HAM 318 is owned by Van Oord, who owns one of the largest Dreging fleets, and owns the Largest dredgers. HAM 318 is doing seabed dreging around wells at the Hiberina project off Newfoundland.
She is expected to Sail today, around 1400
