Salvage Attempt Postponed

Friday, June 29, 2007
A second salvage attempt of the Pasha Bulker has been postponed with three towlines now broken. The Pasha Bulker remains firmly embedded in the sand at Nobby's Beach and has been causing salvage crews a lot of grief. Three towlines have snapped, two from tugboats, another from the sea anchor vessel. The ship has been buoyant enough to have rotated slightly and the remaining lines will stay attached to keep it in positon. Salvage experts say delays like this are not uncommon, with some refloats taking several months. Source: Australian
