Declared a total loss and from what I hear they have already started to cut her up and she will be scrapped where she is.
I guess she must be more damaged than she looks!

Every shipmaster has to make decisions whether to berth or unberth in doubtful weather, or wait for better conditions (and look at the beautiful day now, in the photograph!). Clearly the decision this time was the wrong one, but whether to condemn the master for ever is another difficult decision in these cir***stances.
