A Norwegian tanker suffered a 30ft long gash in her hull in a collision with a fishing vessel off New York on May 12.
The Tofteviken, 115,340dwt, was carrying a cargo of oil and was heading into New York when a collision occurred with the 84ft long steel fishing vessel Polaris nearly 30 miles south-east of Bridgehampton, New York.
The US Coast Guard said the tanker was holed on her port side and there were no reports of any injuries. The Polaris suffered damage to her hull and outriggger, but none of the seven people on board were injured and she was able to continue back to her home port in Massachusetts.
The tanker, owned by Viken Shipping, remained at anchor while the USCG determined when she could continue into port.
