        I, too, saw that 'spill' on the water. but assumed it was mud
stirred up by the ship's keel & propellers?

I may be paranoid, but a look at the photo in an article in today's Courier
Mail (with photo) seems to indicate that the statement

".. Queensland Transport said there was no fuel or oil spilled from the
vessel, which was en route from Port Kelang in Malaysia to Brisbane and on
to Sydney's Port Botany.   Transport Minister Steve Bredhauer said there was
no evidence of environmental damage. "

is a load of rubbish.

My suspicions were aroused after the incident was shown on TV.  Even my
wife, who is not as environmentally aware as I am said, when she saw it on
TV, "What do they mean no oil spill? I can see it!"

The web address which I have included is too long.  It will be cut by my
ISP.  You may have to type it in yourself or you can simply go to and look for the story.,5936,4737366%255E3

I hope I am wrong.
