So how do you move a container ship ??

Don't complain - suggest what's better
It does seem surprising to me that there is not more activity to be seen. It seems big ships like that are paying about $500,000 toll per trip. Obviously if they all wait for the ship to be moved it is a cash flow problem, but if they decide to go the long way round and some are, they will lose that revenue. You can afford a lot of excavators and dredgers for just one ship diverting.

My thinking ....I mean if that was my busines...you'd know how much a cockup like that is gonna cost etc...you'd grab biggest machines you could and head down there...wtf is going on. Bloody Arabs ...the games afoot ... Failing that get some yank navy experts..bet they could make a crater where that ship was.😎
They have now got some serious suction going on there ,from the bbc webshite
A specialised suction dredger, which can shift 2,000 cubic metres (70,000 cubic feet) of material every hour, arrived on site on Thursday,

If they can get a few more of them on both sides they will be winning.

Wonder where they are going to put the spoil🤔 be a bit wet to pump too close by

I think those dredgers are used for beach reinstatement and can fire the material a serious distance can also attach big pipes about 4ft in diameter to pump a good mile
One side of the canal doesn't seem to have a lot going on so if it's fired out there any solids should have settled out by the time the water drains back to the canal

Seems they have nudged the boat a bit and could be out tonight if some of paper reports are right but I doubt it , it should have been in Felixstowe on April 6th to unload some of its containers

I would blow it up and stick some mines off the bottom of Africa. That should slow down the rubbish coming from China for a bit.

Don’t know if it’s true or not but I’ve seen several reports that this is the route the Evergiven took.

If it’s actually true it makes this whole thing look like it’s not an accident.

discuss..............

Have a look at the picture more closely.

I’ll give you a hint, the outside curves like like arse cheeks. Now look at the middle bit and what do you see?

Like I said don’t know if this is true but there plenty of reports on it if you get on Google.

If I was going to jack, drawing a f**k off cock and balls and then blocking the suez would be a cracking way to go
