Update 3. Ship Crash. Hits Woodhouse Reef


The inevitable is happening. The wind is picking up from the North. These pictures were taken approx 2.00pm on 6th Jan 2010, seven days after the initial colision, and shows CSCL Hamburg has turned 90 degrees to the west and getting closer to Thomas reef.
Above, you can see the ship moving broadside to Thomas reef. The wind can get much stronger and its hoped that it holds off until politics are resolved.
Two tugs are stopping the ship from turning any further and hitting Thomas Reef.
A local journalist tells us that there are four companies bidding for salvage rights of the wreck. As soon as this is finalised the ship will be taken away. Conservationist all over will be holding their breath. As divers, it’s always nice diving on a new wreck but if the weather gets much worse, there will be tremendous devastation of these magnificent coral reefs.
