bulletin of information and analysis on ship demolition
The genealogical investigation of Robin des Bois and the comparison of photos of the Zanoobia and the Cosette show that it is very well the same ship. The Zanoobia is some sort of funder of the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal. France and Martinique have inherited a historic wreck. The French authorities hesitate between the scuttling and the dumping at sea or demolition. The first option is currently being used in the French overseas territories; the last would be an innovation.
Issue No. 35 of “Ship-breaking”, 62 pages with photos of ships all around the world. A container ship of more than 13 km long and 176,000 boxes bound for Asia to be demolished and all the adventures of the Cunard Countess in the Falklands, in Arctic, and on the global ocean told until the last, in Turkey was also noted.
