Thread: How to right a ship for $10 million

    How to right a ship for $10 million

    Pretty cool stuff - Ship (Cougar Ace) is carrying 4,703 Mazda cars in the Aleutian Islands in Alaska has a ballast accident and tips on its side. $103 Million in cargo, $100 million dollar ship that is sitting on its side. A crew comes in for $10 million dollars and rights the ship.

    In the end though Mazda shreds all the cars because they don't want to deal with them while under warranty...

    WOW! What a story! I'd love to see a documentary on this.

    Did you notice the headshots of all the guys involved? Do they not look exactly like the kind of guys you'd expect to see in a story like this? Hollywood couldn't do a better job of casting.





    Edit: Looks like they are making it into a movie - http://www.joshuadavis.net/salvagemovie.html
