    Very dangerous but there are always heroes among us willing to risk their own lives!

    There are concerns that the ship will slip into deep water. Why don't they tie it up to shore??? There are no lines on the ship yet and I imagine that it will take a lot of lines to secure it. If the ship goes into deep water it will be an even worse situation. Please ask someone why they are not tying it up. Thanks John.

      with thousans of tons of weight there isn;t a rope strong enough to hold it,it whould be like trying to hold youre car with a clothes line rope,a big enough chain whold be so hevy you whould need a very large crane just to move it,one link in such a chain weighs about 300 lbs,and is as big as youre dineing room table,dont believe me???? check out an ancor chain on a container ship,or any other large ship.
