    Wow, the last bit went real fast. You could sort of see it moving.

    Preparing for winter and surveying the starboard side to define repairs needed to attach sponsons. http://gcaptain.com/salvage-crews-commence-winterization-of-costa-concordia-shipwreck/

    Interview with managing director of Titan on current state of salvage industry with some comments on Costa Concordia including:
    Was there any doubt in your mind of the outcome of the Parbuckling Operation?

    We were very confident. When you spend that much money and study that hard, there was very little doubt. A failure of a particular component of the project could have delayed us, but with the amount of safety margin built in to the project, I didn’t have much doubt about its success. To get the Costa Concordia moving, it required 6,800 tons of pull, but we did have excess capacity to pull harder.​
