The latest news on the Rena from Stuff.co.nz
Svitzer Salvage spokesperson Matthew Watson said the work of removing containers from the remains of the Rena had become “very, very dangerous and very difficult”.
If the rear section sunk, salvaging containers from the ship would become a far more complicated operation, he told Radio New Zealand.
The biggest concern was for the rear section of the ship which was “wriggling” around in the swell.
If the rear section did sink, or if the front section sunk as well, it was possible salvors could possibly use diving techniques and technology.
Interesting that on Day One of this tragedy the ‘experts’ said that “it was not a matter of if the Rena was going to break up, it was a matter of when.” They are technically true, but the time frame was a lot longer than first thought obviously.
