The Osaka Maru, a transoceanic freighter bound from Osaka to Seattle with over 1000 cargo containers of asian imports has gone missing some 300 miles off the Coast of Seattle. The massive cargo ship, some 1700 feet from stern to bow, and some 200 feet of beam, with a draft of over 80 feet, is one of the largest on the seas. Satellite tracking shows her course as steady and weather clear before a garbled distress call reported the ship was under attack and taking on water. A debris field has been located, along with an oil slick several miles in length. However, the ship itself is presumed sunk and no survivors have been recovered.
