Stena Navigator Disabled

The 134 meter long, 2430 dwt ro-ro ferry Stena Navigator became disabled off the coast of Scotland near Corsewall Point when it suffered engine problems.  The Stena Navigator was bound for Belfast when both engines suffered partial failures.   The ferry drifted for several miles until the crew was able to get one of the engines running again at half-power.   Two tugs were dispatched to the scene and accompanied the ferry as it proceeded to Belfast.  No reports of injury of the 70 passengers and 47 crew on board.   No reports of damage or pollution being released.
