Apparently this isnt the first incident like this with one of these car carriers.

The planned refloat today at midday has been cancelled.

Apparently a JCB had moved and punched a hole in the side of the vessel. hole repaired but water has got in.

I reckon it will take months, maybe they should call in that chap who salvaged the costa concordia to help.

Don't worry, they have the best salvage guys on the job...

"They are all saying 'grab it' - they have got tugs down there and are putting lines on it,"

No, you'd just be a little 'man in a boat' with a piece of string hanging out. Which would just about say it all.

No, I meant my post was an old comment. I posted it before the iPad refreshed the thread so it was already commented on
