Shawn started fishing in 1994. He caught his first fish (an Ah Seng) on that very first trip to Changi Carpark 4 (before it was barricaded). He built up his fishing knowledge and gear over the years but still keeps his old gear, just like the memories.

COLLISION IN SINKI FAIRWAY

At 1200 hrs (Singapore time) on 13 March 2013, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) received a report of a collision between an Antigua and Barbuda-registered container ship “BOSUN” and a harbourcraft SC3566E in Sinki Fairway about 7km southwest of Pasir Panjang Terminal.

There were 2 persons on board the harbourcraft, which sank following the collision. A passing vessel rendered immediate assistance. Of the 2 persons, 1 was pronounced dead while the other was sent to National University Hospital for medical attention.

MPA has issued navigational broadcasts to vessels in the vicinity to keep clear of the incident area. Port operations are unaffected.

MPA is investigating the incident and will review safety procedures in the port.

For media enquiries, please call MPA’s media hotline at 6375 1643.
