She's making great progress. Huge well done to everyone working with her. I wouldn't want to have to search her for bodies when she's up. Hope she doesn't fall apart!!!!
Good Luck guys :)

They look like they're running behind schedule though, I think it started at 9:30 GMT and it was supposed to take 12 hours but is still on going. Slow but steady I suppose.  :)

Better late than lying in pieces in the sea waiting for an even bigger salvage operation to begin, as they say. :)

Once they get her floating, the next question is how to move the Costa Concordia.
Towing her seems pretty risky.
The new ship "Dockwise Vanguard" would be a better alternative.. :)

I just had a look. The ship is now horizontal..  Well done  :)
Quite shocking to see how much damage she has ..

The Parbuckling project has been completed, I expect the livestreams will soon end.
  Then it's back to the webcam..

The ship looks beautiful on one side, disgusting on the other side  :'(

wished she gained less damage than those two punctured sections near the bow and aft. its like there is not balcony anymore, its completely been crushed under the thousands of tonnes of weight

you can see the ship from here because there's not any live coverage from the operation...

Yikes, that damage is worse than I expected. Scary how the balconies are so warped.

Not to sound cliched, but what a long, strange, trip it's been.

Yes, now she is sitting on an underwater platform. The next step is getting her refloated..

They did say after the police have completed their search there needs to be major repairs done, including a wash in my opinion, just because there is algae on the ship doesn't mean a 20 month wreck will fall apart straight away after some cleaning up.

Even worse. Wouldn't want to search it and I really hope they find the bodies so they can RIP.

I found this pic of a side of it you don't often see...

"The Costa Concordia ran aground off Giglio in January 2012, killing 32 of the 4,200 people on board. The remains of Russel Rebello of India and Maria Grazia Trecarichi of Sicily have not been recovered.

Rebello, 33, was a cruise waiter who was last seen helping passengers off the ship. Trecarichi was on the cruise to celebrate her 50th birthday with her 17-year-old daughter, who survived."

2 people of 4,200 who was onboard are a few....they could be more...Maybe the killed people had fallen in the water, then they couldn't swim and then they were drowned....Anyway it's so pity to go holidays or to work on a ship and then die... :(

Just what i said before, once the police complete their work, the repairs will be underway, remember there are some "hard to reach" areas within the ship even if its upright, remember that still around 50-60% is underwater, they could be anywhere, its unlikely that the Sea swept them away, especially when the areas around that were carefully searched, bodies don't sink down that quickly in calm seas.

I have seen a lot documentaries about Costa Concordia's accident and i can understand clearly that that night was terrific for all the passengers, so those 32 people maybe was panicked and tryed to keep themselves safe. But if you can't see anything and you are swinming in darkness some time either you get tired and then you're at the mercy of the waves or you die from hypothermia....I think i'm correct, aren't I?
