I haven't read anything else about her since the salvage work was finished.  What, if anything, was ever resolved regarding what actually was the cause of the original explosion(s)??  I understood that they pretty well concluded that stowed fireworks were likely *not* the cause, but beyond that I had only seen hypotheses and guesses.  Have they managed to look closer and come to any good conclusions??

I think they will never publish a thing about it. Maybe Hyundai and the Politicians are very happy, when there are not so much discussions about piracy and terrorism at sea.
Probably it was a bomb or some hot explosives, I think it was. But I think as well that if it was only fireworks the salvors would have published much more stuff about their work. Probably they were kept quiet. I dont know.
I guess if it was really a bomb we will wait for informations till the day we die  :-?

No discussion - No interest/No focus.. Maybe she s already scrapped  :-D

I'm far away from the sea to Hamburg I have a longer distance as to Venice or Genova.
My favorite is the Suezchannel, Panamacannal  and since 2006 also Chinese harbours. I've a lot of pictures and I don't show them because here at is a copyright problem
