The officers and crew of the Mitsui O.S.K. Lines container ship, MOL Summer, deserve a special commendation for their rescue of 116 people following the capsizing and sinking of the passenger ferry MV Rabaul Queen off the coast of Papua New Guinea early Thursday. Eight merchant vessels assisted in the rescue operations. Of the 246 survivors pulled from the sea, the crew of the MOL Summer rescued almost half. Quite an accomplishment in high winds and seas for a crew of only 27. The 38,332-dwt MOL Summer measures 246.8 m and has a maximum container capacity of 3,586 TEU.
