    Achtung: @ 12 empty shipping containers floating (or not) outside the G8

    from FleetMon https://www.fleetmon.com/maritime-ne...san-francisco/

    Container ship MANOA (Matson Lines) reportedly lost some 12 empty containers 8 miles outside Golden Gates at around 2300 LT Dec 11, leaving Oakland, San Francisco Bay. Vessel was maneuvering to disembark pilot in rough seas, and put broadside open to swell. Several containers were washed overboard. Containers are reported to remain afloat, one was already washed ashore. MANOA is en route to Seattle.

    Be careful out there!

    Peace Out, Bags

    SF Gate Story: http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/articl...ay-6695633.php

    This report says only 6-8 (WTF: they don't know how many they lost??) containers went overboard. Some washing ashore in Pacifica. Sorry, PhotoBoy, I don't think they are filled with a~nejo.

    The SF Gate article indicated that the containers were not in distress, or something like that.

    Things have been washing up on Pacifica beaches for a long time. When we lived there in the 1960s, several boats washed up including a wooden power boat that broke up on the beach near the golf course (I still have a couple of drawers I scavenged off the beach from that one) and a moth balled destroyer escort being towed to a breaking yard in S. California that washed up at the south end of Nick's Cove (they cut it up on the beach and hauled the pieces away - took months). Then there was the regular "needle patrol" on Linda Mar Beach. Daly City was still dumping their trash at the end of what's now John Daly Blvd. After a storm the beach was littered with syringes, medicine bottles, and other hospital trash. And the dead whales. Lots of oil when the two Standard Oil tankers collided in SF Bay. Don't know what year Photoboy washed up on the beach?

    Baker Beach was the proud recipient of one of those free containers!

    Some shots making the rounds on the interwebs showing one container that washed up at Dead Mans.

    Earlier in the day, the swell was impressive, with buoys hitting the 30' at 17 seconds mark. These frames
    were taken at high tide and waves were feathering and breaking about 1 mile offshore... and its just the beginning of
    the season...
