And an insurer worth his money will be saying you were selling it for x for scrap you can have x for it not your fictitious book price.

It all depends on the contract terms, which as armchair experts we are all privy to🤔. The tow might have been at the towing companies risk, therefore the client could be claiming for a total loss, including loss of earnings from the drilling contract it was on its way to. It's all in the small print, anyone got a copy to hand? I have a very good contract lawyer on tap😉. At the end of the day, all we know is that there's a rig on the beach, anything else is conjecture.

That's very true but nothing like a bit of conjecture to liven up the debate 😉

Apparently 280 tonnes of diesel aboard that'll keep the lights on in Harris for a while
I see the press are reporting it was on its way to be scrapped in Turkey
It might be getting scrapped sooner than they expected.
Everyone complaining about it but the locals will do OK out of it .Hotels will be full of salvage people taxis will be busy local boat owners will make money ferrying people too and fro engineering companies will benefit
Everyones a winner there's a silver lining to every disaster
