Hi George......I see the local media (Tasmanian) are getting realy politically correct and reffering to her as a 'Wood Fibre Carrier' rather than a 'Woodchip Carrier.' Trying to hide the facts.....a woodchip is a woodchip.
Regards.....Bill

Crimson Mars

Hi George,
My latest info is they will have to recover the anchour which weighs 8t and about 80t of anchour chain before she can sail. the story is also she will have to be shadowed by a salvage tug from Singapore. So she wont be getting away on friday I would guess and could be some interesting photos when she does. I will keep in touch
