One person dead following collision between two vessels in Sinki Fairways

At 1200 hrs (Singapore time) on 13 March 2013, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) received a report of a collision between an Antigua and Barbuda-registered container ship “BOSUN” and a harbourcraft SC3566E in Sinki Fairway about 7km southwest of Pasir Panjang Terminal.


Dear readers,

There is another vessel collision in our waters. Whether you are doing Kayak Fishing in Singapore, Taking your own Kairos Inflatable, taking your own pleasure craft, hiring a fishing captain for charter in Singapore or even doing a Kayaking Star Course, do make sure that you ensure that your safety is the no.1 priority.

I know many fishing kakis go to great lengths to access good productive spots such as shipping lanes or restricted areas even though it may be dangerous because of issues like boat traffic, strong currents and so on... but it is definitely not worth it if you lose your life!
