Was on on the scene from about 35 minutes into the start of the incident back on the 3rd and have been there pretty much since. I've Been the liason between us and the salvage crews since they arrived on the 4th/5th.
I went onboard on many occasions for various reasons almost from the start and am lucky enough to have some incredible (but sensitive) pictures from the car decks....
This picture may not look like much but if you zoom in you will see a large JCB shovel loader of approx 14-15t which was parked on the port side of one of the car decks. Bearing in mind that I took the picture while she had a 55 degree list then you realise that the shovel loader is actually hanging about 38m above your head as you clamber out onto the car deck. Worst of all is that it was hanging from 3 ratchet straps!!
Yes Barrowboy, unfortunately one of our vessels suffered some considerable damage to her main mast and port side exhaust system. No one was hurt though and we will be starting the repairs shortly....
