      Isn't there a project underway to widen the Panama Canal or is that already finished?

              Salvaging/scrapping the ship is the last thing they probably want to do for a boat built in 2018, but it has to certainly be on the table of options...

                There's no way they can scuttle that ship there, though -- that will permanently shut down the canal (indeed it's in five different powers' order of battle for the first fifteen minutes of a regional war to "incapacitate" (military doctrine for "blow the sh-t out of") whoever loses the game of musical chairs when the balloon goes up.

                  Wait, what? there's literally zero chance of that. Who's saying they're talking about scrapping it? That would take months or years.

                    • Here's the problem. Even if they focus on the nose, it doesn't really matter. That's not what's preventing this ship from moving. They can dig that out with the little-excavator-that-could, but they still have the problem that at 15m of draft, you're talking 60 fucking meters of that boat that is currently grounded. Imagine trying to drag an 18- to 20-story building across the ground. They're going to need a hell of a lot of equipment and very careful planning to make sure they don't tip the MFer as they dig.

                      There's a reason they've already scrambled the world's experts on maritime excavation. This isn't just digging the nose out, it's going to be carving out 200 feet of ship. And 200 ft is if it had hit exactly perpendicular to the shore.

                        • It's actually more complicated than that even. They also ahve to be careful so they don't crack the ship in half with all that weight.
