Remember the Tricolor?

As in the RoRo ship that sunk in the Channel a while ago and was subsequently hit by a number of ships who failed to notice a clearly marked and well know wreck! Here's some pics of the salvage operation where they cut her in sections an lifted her onto a barge.

Fascinating stuff!

It still is, Steve... Didn't the dealer 'phone you? It's ready for you to collect tomorrow. You did order it in "rust red" didn't you?
