Suspect bow flare / shape does not allow crew members to safely reach the area ...

They are both there for more than three months, if I remember correctly at least four to five months

Hi Ted.

She lies already for three months on the anchorage, near Scheveningen with the MSC Ruby (Ex Hanjin Gold).So i thank ,they have a lot of time to chance the name.
Captain Ted on Mar 16, 2017 11:05 (1 month ago)
Perhaps no time to fix it in the time available, I remember in 1997 we renamed a vessel for another charter.
The Regina J,, aft was : Bremer Handel ,,fwd one side Bremer and the other side Regina J,, when we came to Sweden the pilot boat passed us on stb side where the Regina J was still, so I called her back, the Pilot said, they passed us because they looked for the Bremer Handel and could not see the name,,,was fun though !!!!
