“Harvest Rising”: In October 2015 the Harvest Rising responded to a mayday signal from the fishing vessel “Lincoln” which was taking on water off the South African coast. The crew of the “Lincoln” had abandoned ship and the “Harvest Rising” managed to rescue three crew members of the “Lincoln” and also recovered one deceased crew member. Our assistance to the owners of the “Harvest Rising” to date has included facilitating the investigation, liaising with the local safety authority and pursuing a life salvage claim against the owners and operators of the “LINCOLN”.
