Been on ships very much like that, OBOs and OROs, same size, also picked up cargo at Sept Isle. Didn't like those ships, didn't like Seven Islands.
Relatives did a great job, not often they find out why ships sinks.
Ships and sailors are expendable commodities, not that I'm complaining, neither worth spending fortunes over.
Less impressed with the ship builder and crew. Rule ONE in bad weather, check all void spaces and tanks for water ingress, regularly. Them being empty be the reason you're dry.

Acronym translations for industry outsiders?

Clearly we need type specific checklists to monitor water accumulations (or they were cowboy-monkey boat pilots), and those damn aquaoengeineers need to make tougher hatch covers (in particular that little one that seemed to kick things off).

Thanks Monchie...interesting and sad story.

Sorry, should be OBO: Oil-Bulk-Ore and O/O: Oil/Ore. Bulk being grain, coal, whatever.
