The Daily Mail , online has some excellent photos of the United States in today's edition and confirms that Chrystal Cruises will do a "feasibility study"
To see if she can be brought up to today's standards , they figure $800 mill, and could be sailing in 2018.

Jens , I believe if the Trump Meister were to be involved with the interior refurbishment it would be done right .

Kelvin, thanks for taking the time to post about the OL, I agree it was dumb to build in Korea,but some one on here corrected me and said no capacity to build in Uk plus they will be built on time and on budget, every one is to busy building an aircraft carrier.
The general public has no idea how much work is created in country that builds its own ships and cars.

Frontline, a panorama type program has just done a documentary, made by a very  brave woman. On the situation in Yemen.
The whole country is an absolute shit house,with Sunnis Shia Al cada, houtis, Isis , southern loyalists in Aden, all claiming
Ownership,Children screaming death to America and the Jews.
As long as they are killing one another that's fine by me, let the white man stay out of this, it can't br settled peaceably.
No ship owner in the right mind should even consider stopping in Yemen.

Captin Ted.
I always read your posts , completely.
Merely stating what I have seen and read.on how, the vsl ended up on shore.
Agree more people should have been arrested and tried.

Look at the disgusting treatment of Captain Joe Hazelwood, hung drawn and quartered in the press, before he even got a lawyer,and his 3 rd Mate is still sailing the Seas
But that's an other story

If my memory is correct the vsl passed and drifted back,and settled, on to the rocks on the bow and stern the,engines were dead for quite some time
Not due to any acts of seamanship by any one one that bridge,bridge video isaw was utter chaos.
There was some strong winds that night,
If he were tried here in the US,I think,32 life sentences, and the chance of parole when the sentences are complete. Would be fair.
He never even got his feet wet.
12  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Nova , Raising the Costa Concordia on: January 22, 2015, 03:12:01 am
Just watched Nova on Public TV here in the US, the documentary was about the problems
of trying to raise the vsl,I just hope a lot of other countries get to see this program.
Approx $1.2 Billion cost.
The ship Designer closed with a statement," A tragedy, that need not have Happened.
very true.
Rich Habbib ,Salvage Master Nick Sloan  and the Ships Designer put together a Superb team of Ladies and Gentlemen to accomplish this job.

excellent post Jordan,put them right back, in the container, and return to France, then may be they will do something about allowing these SOB,s to pass through France so easily. as long as they keep on going to "Treasure Island"
Your immigration problems are minor compared with here in the USA , Obummer brings them in by the train load not just one truck or container.
