Captain, Crew of Sunken Trawler Found Under Qualified

The captain and many crew members of a South Korean trawler that sank in Russian waters have been found under qualified.
The Busan maritime security division, which is investigating the sinking of Oryong 501, said Monday that its analysis of documents seized from Sajo Industries, the owner of the ill-fated vessel, reveal the skipper and chief engineer had Class 3 marine technician licenses instead of Class 2.
Investigators said that the second mate and first engineer were also under qualified, and the ship operated without a second engineer, third mate or communications operator.
The investigators are questioning Sajo officials on why the trawler operated without the crew members in violation of the law.
Meanwhile, Busan Regional Maritime Affairs and Port Administration, which approved the crew’s embarkation on the sunken trawler, said that it is hard to check qualifications as it receives so many applications.
