    How to right a ship for $10 million

    Pretty cool stuff - Ship (Cougar Ace) is carrying 4,703 Mazda cars in the Aleutian Islands in Alaska has a ballast accident and tips on its side. $103 Million in cargo, $100 million dollar ship that is sitting on its side. A crew comes in for $10 million dollars and rights the ship.

    In the end though Mazda shreds all the cars because they don't want to deal with them while under warranty...

            WOW! What a story! I'd love to see a documentary on this.

            Did you notice the headshots of all the guys involved? Do they not look exactly like the kind of guys you'd expect to see in a story like this? Hollywood couldn't do a better job of casting.

                        Stender and Mayani stay on board, sleeping on cars, smoking cigarettes, and tending the pumps. For lunch, they toss one end of a line out a door that's halfway down the starboard hull. It reaches the Makushin Bay 50 feet below, and the boat's crew ties some food on the line. But when Stender and Mayani haul it up to discover a meal of boiled cabbage and popcorn, they snap. "We don't eat cabbage, you fucking fucks!" Mayani screams, hurling the cabbage at the crew. The crew dodges the fusillade of wet, steaming cabbage, and it splatters onto the decks and wheelhouse of the Makushin Bay.
                        If Dreamworks cuts this part out, I'll consider the film a failure.

                        We don't eat cabbage, you fucking fucks!

                          And you're entitled to that perspective.

                              Shredded the cars! I would have taken one as is.....no warranty. What do you have to lose?
