RECOVERED

There was excellent news this week regarding the loss of the United States ship S.S. El Faro last year.  Finally after a certain unwillingness to locate and recover the vessel's Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) it was recovered from 15,000 feet on Monday and brought aboard the surface ship at 2230. 

Rather than repeat the whole story here NAUTICAL LOG suggests you go to a full article published in gCaptain at www.gcaptain.com

Hopefully there will data recorded that will assist in understanding the tragic decisions made by, presumably, the vessel's Master prior to the sinking with the loss of all hands.  See  previous Posts by NAUTICAL LOG.

Good Watch.
