Engineering officials in Italy say they have succeeded in lifting the cruise ship Costa Concordia free of rocks, 20 months after it ran aground.

Efforts to right the ship, one of the largest and most daunting salvage operations ever undertaken, are expected to last up to 12 hours.

The ship has been detached from rocks and moved on to a platform constructed on the sea bed, officials said.

Thanks for the thread - I've been watching since this morning local time.

There's a duplicate thread I started - sorry about that - silly search engine didn't bring up a thing.

Anyway! I'm here to stay - will post pics as it goes.

It is interesting - isn't it! S&F!

peace

Thanks for the thread! Looks like it's slowly rotating as planned. A sad ending for a fine ship all because they didn't follow the rules and 31 souls paid the ultimate price for such folly.

Quite the feet of engineering. Once they have her re-floated, does anyone know how far they are planning on towing her?

They will leave her where she is for next 12 months to make her sea worthy to tow her to a port in Italy somewhere, where she will be dismantled. Don't know why they don't 'do her up' where she is and have her as a hotel? Suppose the locals would object to that.

There would be at least a couple of concerns, firstly structural integrity to support the vessel and secondly superstition. No one wants to be on a boat that has sunk due to an accident and loss of life. It's like asking someone to sleep in a tomb. There have been many vessels that sank and were re-floated where no life was lost and the vessel was not under water very long. CC has been down for 20 months, she's scrap. The best thing to do is seal the hull, pump her out and tow her to the scrapper. Another option is get her to the point you can put her into a floating dock/barge and tow her that way. Either way, all the best to the crews that are working hard to remover her from the rocks and protect the environment.

That amount of time with sea water in places sea water should not be for any length of time, will have caused all sorts of structural problems.

They will probably take her apart a module at a time and if each is in good condition repair to be re-used on a new or damaged vessel.

Watching the feed now, forget this was this week , thanks for posting
