Thanks for that, good closeup view. You can see it here too...

What a sad sight, a beautiful ship lying on its side like that.

It will be interesting in the coming weeks and months, to see what they do.

They have began to do something visible to the ship now. Two days ago, a barge was parked right alongside and they were seen removing the mast with all the electronics and sonar equipment on it (just forward of the visible radome) I didn't really notice it gone until I looked again today and in the right light, saw it missing.

First pic shows the barge
Second pic shows the missing mast

Will stay tuned...

More action, albeit in slow motion, can be seen on this other Giglio website:-
http://www.giglionews.it/2010022440919/webcam/isola-del-giglio/webcam-giglio-porto-panoramica.html
This shows a view covering activities further to the left, where what appears to be a four legged jack up rig has been operating close to shore for about a week. The proposed salvage operation includes running steel ropes which are first anchored to the shore, down under the hull and making them fast to the port side. This is to stop the hull sliding down the underwater slope when they start trying to pull her upright onto a yet to be built steel platform. It could be some work associated with this that the jack up rig is involved in.
I am going to be very interested to see if there are large holes in the starboard side when they get it upright. If not, why did it list so heavily to starboard and sink?

holedrille, I wondered what that might be.

It seems that the closeup webcam is offline for the time being, don't know if it is undergoing maintenance or been removed  Sad

There is now a large barge with what appears to be a hoisting crane on it (and another crane)...please excuse my lack of vessel identification skills here ;-) Someone more in the know might be able to identify it.

Seen here...

I wonder if they are getting close to the actual 'righting' of the stricken ship?

It will be many months before the ship is in a condition where it can be righted. Probably not until about this time next year I'd guess.

Although the water gushed in on the port side, which struck the rocks, the water within the ship then "moved across" the large open spaces due to "free surface effect" as the ship was manoeuvred in the attempt to reach the port. 'Free surface effect' is a serious hazard in ferries...."Herald of Free Enterprise" is a classic example.

But they were not trying to manoeuvre it, unless you believe the discredited captain, as all power had been lost some time before. It was merely drifting under the influence of a NE wind, fortuitously towards shore.

Here is the clearest description of the salvage scheme that I have seen yet, if it copies!
I particularly like the plan to remove the 80 ton boulder embedded in the side of the ship and mount it on a plinth!
The large crane that has been operating on the seaward side of the ship has left, wonder if this means that the underwater platform has been finished?
