I would very much doubt it.

Local conditions are Onshore Wind, gusting to 30 mph (26 Knots.). Its dropped a bit as max gust earlier was 42 mph (47 knots).
Its not predicted to drop very much over the next couple of days and the sea is very rough. We tried to look earlier today at Blyth and got sand blasted!!

She went ashore on a 4.3m tide and today was only 3.9m. Mondays daylight tide is 4.5m at 13.25, increasing to 5.1m on Friday.

Its a good job she went ashore in the shelter of the Island or she would have been a wreck now, I suspect.

Danio still in place but LOMAX not currently on AIS.

High Tide today at 14.00 is 4.7m.

Max Spring Tide is on Friday. 5.1m at 15.49 hrs.

Danio

I was in contact with the tug Lomax this morning and the first attempt to get the Danio off will be at high tide Wednesday, for everyones sake we hope they succeed.

It is expected she will go to Blyth first underwater inspection.
