Today was wild and it got worse as the day went on.
The salvage guys have got everything in place and they are ready to go the second the weather gives them a chance to get out the her.
The winds have come at the wrong time but at the moment it’s from the east and the Danio has a little bit shelter from the Longstone Island. Don’t get me wrong she will be still feeling it but not as much if it was from the north.
She is a doubled skimmed hull ship and they have filled it with water so she will be more stable. I have been told this will take about 12 hours to empty. I have also been informed tonight that nobody is allowed within 500 meters of the ship until they get her off the rocks. Lets just hope they get her off safe and sound before Easter.
I think they are going to try and take all the fuel off her and bring it back to Seahouses. They are not going to take the logs of the ship as this will only lift her less than a foot so it’s not worth it, but if they think it will make a difference then they will do it. Their main concern is to get the fuel off and then tow the ship to safety.
I don’t know what they are going to do with the 1 meter by 1 meter hole near her bow but at the moment she is not taking in water.
Anyway that’s all for now so here are some pictures of the big seas, me, and the hole taken from saturday and late this afternoon and I will update you all tomorrow.
