A cargo ship where the cargo is water 3 June 2012

Posted by cooperatoby in Uncategorized.

Remarkable inverted logic from Guidotti Alvaro, one for the salvors of the Costa Concordia, the 114,500 tonne cruise ship that ran aground on the island of Giglio in 13 Jan 12, explaining why they don’t plan to patch the holes in the hull or drain the ship:

“We don’t need to seal the ship since the boxes give it sufficient buoyancy,” said Alvaro. “It’s just like a cargo ship except the cargo is water.”
