      Oh, I know that. I was just marveling at the scale, and what the gantry ballet must look like in an active shipyard.

        I think 15 is high. I'm guessing with a couple of choppers you could get that down to 10 minutes, maybe less. Especially if you don't give a fuck about the containers or their contents. Plus like bass said, you only need some off. We're still talking 2-6 weeks after equipment arrives.
        Next problem with that theory:

        Even the Mi-26 "the largest and most powerful helicopter to have gone into serial production" (wiki) only has a useful load of 44,000 lbs. (Our best, the CH-53E, is just 29,000 lb)

        Max gross weight of a standard 40-ft shipping container is 67,200 lb. Even a 20-ft container can go up to 53,000 lbs. So, would there be enough accessible, lightly-loaded containers in the right locations on the ship that you can offload enough using helicopters? Or would we have to be talking terrestrial/marine cranes instead?

            • Question for those of us who haven't really been following this:

              How the hell did the ship get so sideways in the first place?

              What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                  Current reports are that it lost power, including navigation, and extremely strong winds blew it off course. Half a billion pounds of first law carnage.
