  • Ship aground off Newcastle (with photo)

    This doesnt happen very often - a ship has run aground off newcastle (nobbys beach).  I work in the coal industry in Newcastle, so its pretty big news! Apparently its only 50m off shore.

            I guess the pilot was having problems finding a decent parking spot?

                Or maybe he was just so amazed at bringing coal to Newcastle that he lost track of where he was. ;D

                  It will be interesting to see them re-float it...thats a lot of ship to move. Is the master ordering take away Lates whilst watching the bow settle deeper into the sand! Poor buggers.

                  Cheers

                    Nothing new or original but I took this earlier today.
                    The waves were making a very cool thud as they crashed against the ships hull.

                    I think they should leave it there as a tourist attraction

                      Too bad it is not off Stockton beach as the ol wreck there (which attracts a lot of 4wders and Fisherfolk) is starting to look quite second hand.

                          For anyone looking for a hot plate for the BBQ, there may be some steel plate going cheap soon..
