I think its probably more a case of, if she sinks up there she is not going to block the normal operations of the Port.

Was under the impression the Owners were going to inspect her and if the damage was to servere they were going to sell her.

Time will tell!

A wee Tug called the CYKLOP (6605448) has arrived from Dordrecht to tow the Danio away.

No destination as yet. Its going to be a long slow tow unless they get her sorted out.

The Programme and the Local Newspaper then went on to describe the Danio as 'A Hugh Containership' and the salvage operation as 'Massive' and thinking about it, I'm sure they showed the Tug which first went to her aid, and not the one that pulled her off.

The Bridge Alarm was switched off and the Watchkeeper was asleep. She also had a 'Non-approved' Navigation System but the limits of the system would not have come to light if the Watchkeeper had not been asleep.

The Owner blamed the Master and the Mate for the grounding which they could not really deny.

However nothing was mentioned about the size of the crew or the long hours that they have to work.
