February, 2015 –M.V.Hope drama in real life: 40 hours lost at Sea

Ordered to abandon ship in heavy weather, a badly injured second officer
survives for nearly 40 hours in churning seas off Thailand. At first, only Mohammad Mobarak Hossain sensed the change-a subtle shift in the bulk freighter’s motion. It was past midnight on July 4, 2013, and the
MV Hope had seen bad weather since arriving in the Andaman Sea hours before. The ship rolled right, swung back to the centre line and then heaved to the starboard side again.
