Run aground

Ship aground

Yet another ship has run around in Cape Town, this time off Clifton’s First Beach. The Japanese fishing boat, which contains 80 tons of fuel and 50 tons of fish ran around on Saturday morning in heavy fog.

I just hope that they manage to get the ship off the ground without spilling all that oil.
