'Hazard A' Tanker Passes
I enjoy watching ships like this pass through the Sound. While I think it's probably safer for her to pass to the west of Mull, I'm happy to see her - as long as the owners know that, if the ship comes ashore and people's livelihoods are ruined, the fines they will incur will be punitive.
Currently this is not the case - all they have to do is apologise and promise to do better next time. So, wherever you live, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and urge him to press the UK government to take all the steps he can to prevent a repeat of the Lysblink Seaways 'accident'.
