Anyone love big bangs then it would appear that the Napoli is now going to be blown up so it can be made in to more managable parts.

If anyone knows the bang date please post.

How did I know that was going to happen ? It was obvious from day one that that would be the only solution. I used to watch old beached ships being blown up on the N. Sea coast just N. of Whitby. Great fun and very simple really. Some strategically placed C4/Semtex and 1/2 mile of det. cord. Have taken down a few large trees down that way but used dynamite. C4 would be illegal

Running around like a head with it's chicken cut off.

Of course letting it sink in deep water would have hurt the environment..........

"Police will close a number of footpaths around Branscombe prior to the cutting charges being detonated on the Napoli. The public was urged not to try to get to the cliff edge to see the ship as they would put themselves into the danger area."

Miserable Nanny State!!!
