Princess Taiping crew rescued but junk lost

I read the BBC news article & watched the video with a heavy heart. The crew was so kind myself and my husband when we visited them and their beautiful junk at the Hyde Street Pier here in San Francisco. They even made us tea. They took the time to give such an interesting and fun presentation to us at our staff meeting.

I am so sorry for the loss of their craft. My heart goes out to Nelson, Angela and the crew, and everyone who gave so much of themselves to the Princess Taiping.

More stories in the Taipei Times and at the Hawaii Health Guide site.

How incredibly sad, and it's outrageous for the Liberian vessel to just go on her merry way afterward.

please keep us posted about this. my friend hugh was on that ship and i've only been able to hear from him through online posts. I'd love to know what, if any of the repercussions are for the other vessel.

I'll see what I can dig up, Sakkis.

I remember Hugh fondly--he was very generous with his time when I visited the ship, and when I went back with my husband. I've been hoping he's doing all right.
