Making History the Hard Way

Probably not the opening paragraph foreseen by the developers of the Gwadar Port when they started work, but what they got here:
And the port is certainly making history. This is perhaps the first port in the annals of the history of port development which could not receive the first commercial ship specifically chartered to use the port on its inauguration. Somebody just forgot to check the draft of the ship against the depth available at the port. The ship had to be partially unloaded at the anchorage to MV Hyderabad, engaged from PNSC, before the ship was able to enter the port.
