Rinsky, about 80 meters tall, was on his way from Ghent to Masbracht. The nave is folded mid-ship and in accordance with the surrounding vessels, the central nave is at the bottom. The front and rear engine chambers are still dry.

As a result, Ringvaart has been completely banned. Since no one could bypass the ship, the Evergem Lock was also blocked. When asked, the lock keeper said he had no idea how long the blockage would last.

can not be saved

A close captain suspected that Renske had been improperly loaded, causing a lot of tension on the ship’s hull. Another eyewitness says he expects the ship to be irreparably damaged and irreparable.
