How to keep the cargo from falling overboard as your truck is loaded with freight
With its six-foot-long wooden frame and three-foot, steel propeller, the Harbor Freight Yakima is a vessel with a lot going for it.
And it’s the one cargo tug that’s a perfect candidate for a container ship.
It has a sleek, sturdy hull that can take a ton of freight and carry it over land or sea.
It’s built to withstand the rigors of the ocean and the rigours of a freight ship.
But in the last few years, the cargo ship’s hull has fallen apart and now it’s falling apart, too.
As the Tacoma Narrows container ship slowly sank off the coast of Washington, Wash., it was carrying more than 20,000 tons of cargo, including steel products, metals, and other products.
The container ship, which sank off Oregon’s Columbia River, is now in the water.
The tug’s cargo will be salvaged, the National Transportation Safety Board said.
The ship’s owner, the Tacoma Bayliner Corporation, said the cargo is being recovered and that it plans to continue to ship containers.
But that doesn’t mean it’s safe.
A tug is capable of sinking, but it can be hard to stop when the hull collapses.
A container ship can only be stopped by a crane or the crew.
The National Transportation Security Board (NTSB) has warned that the cargo could have been moved out of the water before it sank, but some of the container ships that sank have been unable to be towed out of their containers.
“The NTSB is concerned about the safety of the cargo vessel and the containers it is transporting and the potential for the vessel to sink,” the agency said in a statement.
The agency said the Coast Guard was assisting with the recovery efforts.
“We are coordinating with the local, state, federal and international partners in the investigation to assist with the safe and expeditious recovery of the containers,” the NTSB said.
On Thursday, the Coast Health and Safety Administration released a statement saying the container ship had been in a port for “at least two weeks” and that its health had deteriorated.
It said that while it was still unclear if the ship was being repaired, it was in good shape.
The NTSB had warned that a container vessel could sink during sea trials or even a container tug could be damaged if it tried to push its way out of a container.
The Coast Guard has asked the NTSBs office of inspector general to look into the incident.
