Apparently the intense competition among salvagers resulted at one point in a tug-of-war with the Dutch tugs towing from the bows and the French tugs towing in the opposite direction from the stern. Eventually they agreed to let the lawyers sort out the rival claims and towed the smouldering hulk to Cherbourg Roads.
