It's like they didn't even do a back of the envelope calculation. Staggering really. I mean wtf?last i heard was start dredging again like a mutha fucka along the starboard side and literally attempt to dig it out partially. Those first two attempted tug outs were a fools errand.
they're gonna have to get enough of the bottom away from her to relieve some of the suction from that mud/clay mess she's stuck in.
Different Evergreen. They had a fleet of 747 Cargos that were always busy but strangely unscheduled. When Obama pulled the plug on the CIA black ops budget, they suddenly went from thriving to bankruptcy. Well, at least AFAIK there is no connection... The logos are spookily similar.
what do they tie the tugs to?Totally ridiculous!
They need much stronger tugs, and more of them. Dredging helps, but that will not move the thing in the first place
Don't tie them all to the same point. Some pull, some push.what do they tie the tugs to?
How much load can the kevels on the deck take?
How much does that add up to? See my calc...it is a lot more than any reasonable collection of deck hardware can take.
The remarkable thing really is that buoyancy is the problem and yet the solution seems to be "dig a hole."
Yes, it is a gargantuan thing. And what calc propably was done was "hey, we can dredge a hole as big as the ship in X days" but the problem is that has to be done UNDER the ship all without capsizing it at the same time...
