The 110 meter long self propelled tanker-barge Fint ran aground on the Rhine River near Bad Honnef, Germany. The Fint was en route to Godorf from Mannheim when it ran up onto a crib. The Fint remained aground for a few days when a tug and two other barges arrived on scene. The first attempt to refloat the Fint failed, but a few hours later the Fint was pulled free. The Fint was inspected and allowed to proceed to a shipyard in Duisburg where the hull could be inspected further. No reports of injuries or pollution released. The water police has launched an investigation into the incident.
