      I wondered that too.

      repair where it is at, all exposed.. use the air/water pump routine with biggest closed channels pumped out first...would be my guess.

      some welders are gonna get big bucks there I could guess.

      thay do have those big sea going cranes that float a sunken boat..but this is huge.

          The aliens DID build the pyramids, after all. Depending upon which channel you watch...yeah, they could do it, and have the ship's captain out of jail and beamed somewhere else before anybody even noticed he was missing.

              Very careful pumping of the intact flooded spaces and counterflooding of intact spaces on the other side (depending on the watertight integrity of the ship.) Probably some strategically placed buoyancy bags. And really big tugs. Of course one good storm and it will get easier once the ship is broken into smaller pieces.

              Big dollars and very dangerous operation. This whole thing is criminal and inexcusable.

                true, but as with all good trainwrecks (or in this case shipwreck) it makes darn good TV.

                    It's Italian. They'll just paint it red, call it a Ferrari and it will zoom out of there on its own!

                      I would blame it on the Iranians and go from there.

                        I guess italy does have an immigration problem.


                        boating between two giants in boston harbor..they are so large the water is the temperature of the boat for a long time.

                        the size of that and knowing they have to thrash the big boat around like a matchbox. Quite a scale of mind change. I bet the salvage people don't drive hounder cheevics.

                        just 40tons and a rig for some years and things change about size or even volume of voice.

                            offered 30million for a ballast problem..
                            I wonder what offers are put up for this serious one.

                            is magnetics or other weird problem part of this? looks like that rock attacked the boat.

                              Two words - Somali Pirates. The Captain was hero to scuttle the ship rather than give it over to those heathens. If I was in his shoes that would be my defense. I have a feeling he won't be able to get a gig piloting a jon boat.
