Wish I could say it's a pleasure, Andy, but of course, it's not. I take no joy in any sort of shipping casualty, but they do happen and this forum has a special interest in this sort of thing, hence my reasons for calling attention to these events when they happen along with any follow up.

And also:New Zealand: State of Stricken Rena Remains Uncertain
Comment: I think it's a safe bet that the Rena is not coming off that reef intact, if ever. If the ship hasn't split in half, it's only a matter of time before it does.
