(CNS): The SC Montana, a cargo ship that lost power Tuesday evening and drifted into Cayman waters, now poses no threat to Little Cayman, having been towed to about 25 miles off the coast of the island last night. At 10:00am Thursday, it was drifting away from Little Cayman in the open ocean, though some engine power had been recovered to help the vessel avoid any collisions. Cayman Islands officials contacted the shipping company’s main office in Greece, and a tug boat is expected to arrive Friday afternoon to tow the ship to Jamaica.

    Cayman island is dangerous for vessel with engine trouble. There must be a tugboat. The island is my regular container service bi-weekly in georgetown with cargo for little cayman and cayman brac island

    if this ship had gone on the rocks off Little Cayman it would not have been the first. Cayman Brackers remember that the West Enders made up a song about the “Loch Monar” going on the rocks and about salvage operations. Any Caymanians care to comment?

    I’m sure someone on Little had a spare 9HP Johnson they could have loan them.
