Update 4 : Ship Crash. Hits Woodhouse Reef

These pictures were taken 8th Jan 2010 and shows only one tug is now deployed to keep the massive vessel in a safe position after the crash.

You can see Thomas reef in the foreground.
There is approx 60 meter gap between Woodhouse and Thomas reef and the CSCL Hamburg is over 250 meters long. If it was left to swing around with the tide and wind and hit Thomas, there would be even more devastation to the area.

You can gauge the size of CSCL Hamburg by the speed boat passing by.
The weather conditions in the Straits of Tiran miraculously stays favourable.... at the moment!
We'll be visiting the area again tomorrow 10/01/10 and report on the condition.
