They need to dive the wreck with IMAX cameras before cutting her up for scrap.

I can't help but think that this ship is salvageable?


that was my first thought ...
some of the many problems which would need to be fixed:
how farked are the engines and power plants?
assuming that they were flooded, how bad did the sea water screw them up?

everything else on the boat gets replaced anyways on a rotating scheduled

I would bet that the boat is salvaged, refit, sold to a lower tier cruise line, renamed and TADA

bhcompy: Except that they were in Italian waters.. What are the laws in Italy?


Link (new window)

and the cruise line might want to fark with the US and the rest of the world and cherry pick a retarded country, say the country that the ship is flagged under, in order to try and avoid fines/settlements. but then they risk be banned from using US ports. or people going "well that company SUCKS BALLZ" take a different cruise ...

I read yesterday that Italian navy divers were placing explosive charges to clear blocked passages so that Italian coast guard divers could search for bodies.

If the gigantic hole in the side of the boat wasn't enough damage, I can't imagine that explosive charges in passageways and other areas would be terribly good for the salvagability of the boat.

Speaking of salvage, I remember this link being on Fark a while ago. Very cool reading.


Cool Link! Thanks!

Oznog: Well, an industry is more willing to comp generously when there's only ONE person to deal with. I think they're worried about bankrupting their entire company with 3200 stranded passengers as well as a few people killed and the loss of a $500M ship.


heheheheehehe
probably should have worried about losing the 500M ship before letting a POS be in charge of said ship.

FUNNY, if I had a 500M piece of anything, I would pretty much make certain that no one was driving it cross country.
