Your pressie could be in that wheelbarrow Jan!
It's going to take a few years if that is all they have to lighten the ship.
I believe they are sending salvage experts from Scotland to try a refloat. Wonder why Gdynia has gone quiet all of a sudden?

Unfortunately Im offshore Ras Shukheir,Egyptian Red Sea Coast salvaging a ruptured Oil pipeline. This other one can wait untill later as it wont go very far especially if my Mate Coastie is keeping his eyes on it.

Malcolm,

Yes, I agree. It's easy to miss items due to the vast quantities being posted nowadays.

Click the link at the bottom of my previous message and it will take you to DMA's thread. (Thumb)

I can't understand why they don't follow the method used to refloat the Sealand Express in Cape Town. Bring in a dredger and dig a trench to drop her in to, each time the had dredged some sand away the tugs managed to move her a fraction closer to deeper water. Surely this would be the best technique to use?
