Transformal ship salvage

A big coal carrier ran aground near Newcastle Australia and efforts have been on-going to get her off the beach. See here, but the ship has not been able to be re-floated. Over at the Maritime Links Editor's Blog, the MLE posted this from You Tube, showing a new wave in ship salvage.


The MLE also gets a hat tip for posting the video from a St. Lawrence Seaway smash-up which reminded me to do a post on the SLS.

Nice slideshow and some background here.

UPDATE: Video from the air of grounded ship:
(Barefoot flying, too!)

Progress reported in salvage here:
Good progress is being made on the Pasha Bulker salvage attempt with the ship moving further off Newcastle's Nobbys Beach.
Extensive coverage at CargoLaw and here which includes this link to a live webcam of the beach.

UPDATE (2 July 07): Ship is now free.
