[quote]It's boxed in with some pipelines right now. They should pump it with air and displace the water sometime this week as I am told [/quote] If they can refloat the hull, they should be able to bring it largely intact back to shore relatively quickly. Watching some of the news, particula...

If they can’t refloat it, I imagine they will need to cut it in pieces to pick up. It’s too shallow to leave it there....

re: UPDATE 265 Class Liftboat capsizes . Story of survivor on Nola,com page 75 - Athanatos
I didn’t say to cut in the hull at that location , or even at all, but being able to access the vessel directly above water has implications for how you can gain access. I’m assuming that by now the rescuers have the 3-d models of the hull and accommodation spaces and have a plan for where they thin...

The complicated part is probably the bureaucracy of response management. I 100% believe the technology exists. They have been using robots to find mine collapse survivors for many years. Don’t exaggerate the costs and complexity of mobilization when private planes are available to move men and ...

[quote]So, you think the divers should dive in unsafe conditions for a maybe?[/quote] I wasn’t advocating for any particular course of action, just action. When the stakes are high, and 12 lives are at risk, the acceptable risk to the rescuer obviously changes. Ignore rescue for a moment and ...

re: UPDATE 265 Class Liftboat capsizes . Story of survivor on Nola,com page 75 - Athanatos
I’m not advocating one response vs. another. I’m saying waiting on weather this long is unacceptable. If there is a chance that men are still alive in the boat, best efforts need to be deployed to save them, and they need to be made immediately. If any armchair admirals here disagree, that’s the...

[quote]Divers are in the water as we speak. What are you talking about? You want the US Navy to send in SEALs?[/quote] All people want to see is a little apparent effort to save what could be 12 men trapped inside that hull. When Macondo blew out, ROVs were working in 5,000 ft. of water to m...
