World’s shortest sea trial

It appears to have been the world’s shortest sea trial for the car carrier DYVI PACIFIC. The ship apparently capsized shortly after leaving the builders yard in Shadong, China on 23 April 2009.

The ship was departing for trials and was scheduled to be delivered to its owners.
