Knew someone who's dad was a beekeeper. The post office always let him know right away when a new queen bee arrived in the mail for him, and that he needed to pick it up *right now*

Although "imperceptible" is one word that springs to mind whilst watching....interesting technique, though.

  • Sergio Girotto, the project manager, said that when they started exerting force on the wreck they immediately saw a response in terms of movement. But they couldn't see it becoming dislodged from the rock on which it has been moulded. However, when the force reached 6,000 tonness, the much-anticipated "distacco" – detachment – took place.
NPR and the linked article both said the parbuckling involved weighted tanks pulling the ship upright... I was under the impression that the tanks are floatation...
 
The tanks will be floatation, eventually, along with tanks fitted to the starboard side once it's upright. Easier than sealing and pumping out the hull itself. Filling the tanks with water to start the process will help the righting moment, with the added benefit that the moment exerted by the water is balanced once the tanks enter the sea, thus easing up on the rotation just as she comes upright because otherwise there'll be even more of a hell of a bump, I guess...anyone? Bueller? Lazy8?
 
And then the tanks, and those then attached to the starboard side, will be pumped dry to float her off.
 
And when this is all said and done, and you get your next house/car/pet insurance premium out there in Wyoming, as far from the sea as you can get (and yes, that felt a bit weird to me), a little bit of it will be going to pay for this. Because if there's one bunch that never lose in the insurance game, it's the insurers.
 
Good illustration of the rotation:

 
But crikey, hell of a construction job just to build a platform to rest her on by anchoring enough of those onto a steeply sloping seabed with deep enough piling to take the weight

They seem to be doing a good job of it. I guess the hardest thing to know is if it is lodged on the rock and will suddenly pop up or slip when it becomes free.

I'd make sure you book a cabin on the port side if I were you. The starboard ones might be a little musty.
