Regarding alleged pollution of the sea,
This is to inform you that 6 of July this year
The representatives of German Cost Guard come on board of our vessel, which was
Staying at the outer roadstead of the port of Bremen and accused us of sea pollution
With oil products. The accusation is grounded on the verbal information of the Pilot
Of the privet helicopter. Who sighted an oil slick at a distance of 3 miles down the river.
However oil slick was not sighted along my vessel’s sides. Inspection of entries in the
Engine Record Book also showed that our did not discharge any oil products while
Visiting German territorial waters. The accusation of violation of the International Convention
MARPOL was rejected by me. I ask you to arrange survey of my ship by independent surveyor
And note the sea protest right after my vessel arrival?, and also inform the consulate about it.

Port of Rangoon
In connection to you claim about alleged saving of our ship with two tugs of your port during
Refloating of my vessel and towing her to the port 21 this month. I would like to inform you about following.
I have to reject your claims concerning the payment for the saving of our vessel, as there as no such
Service for my vessel and no appropriate documents was signed. I ask you to bear in mind, that nobody
Offered my to sign a Lloyds Contract of salvage during the above as sinking was not threatening to our vessel. I think that refloating effected by the tug was Port Authorities duty, that is why I agree to pay for usual expenses for towing if you produce me an appropriate dill for the effect work.

Regarding to the damage to the propeller. My vessel B. From Baltimore was
Drifted by wind while the maneuver entering the lock, December 10, this year.
At that time the stern tug let out the howser, which winded on our screw and broke it.
Our vessel has general cargo on board, including deck cargo. I had to take away a part of
The cargo, order a diver for the inspection of the damage, then the vessel was towed into the
Dry-dock. I will repair the vessel in the port and send a cost, which your company must pay
To my ship owner for the damage to the vessel caused in consequence of the tug, and also
For the discharging or part of the cargo.

In reply to your injury I beg to inform you the following.

To Port Master June, 30, 2000
In reply to your letter of 5, this month regarding the towing of my vessel while
Proceeding out of your port, I would like to inform you the following.
As I was sailing out of the port in day-time. I ordered only one tug, what
Is allowed by local rules of your port. However two tugs arrived at the indicated
Time, that is why I had to refuse from one of them. Consequently,
the assistance was effected by one tug , which Master can confirm my statement.
In connection of the said above I refused to pay your bill for the help of two tugs.
I regret to inform you, that I consider the claim concerning the damage, received
By your tug on 23rd, March, this year groundless. I ordered only one tug to pass
Trough the lock, leading to the south dock.
In the order from delivered by your representative officer I indicated that I need
Only one tug signed an appropriate order.
Dock pilot, who was on board of my vessel at the time also said, that vessels
Usually order one tug to pass this lock and he did not offer me to take a second tug.
Master of the tug was operating at his risk, that is why he is the only who is responsible
For the received damage.
In replay to your injury we inform you, that my vessel arrived to an outer roadstead
Of your port in accordance with the voyage schedule. However the Port Authorities
Informed me, that there was no available berth in the port and so they recommended
Me to anchor. The Pilot, who was met our vessel at the roadstead on the 22nd of June
At 0400hrs by local time, also confirmed the instruction of the Port Authorities to lead
our vessel to the special anchorage situated in two miles from the pilot station. At present
we are still at anchor and waiting for a permission to enter the port, however 7 days have
passed. I ask you to inform the Shippers about the said above.
