A Bulgarian cargo vessel SEAWIND that had been arrested off Brazil (Fortaleza) for 11 moths has sunk after taking on water. Seawind (3,936dwt, built 1986, flag Panama) was arrested because of debt of US$560 000. The owner of the ship is the unlucky company ARGO MARITIME LTD. The crew members were 13, probable all Bulgarians.
Last week in Wednesday water penetrated in the vessel because of a corrosion. All crew members are safe.
Crew members claim that they have not received salaries for 9 months.
