I totally agree with you Michael,
Without being an salvage expert I think they will need to come up with another
solution. It will be interesting to see what they will do next end how it will all end.

Salvage Experts at work.
The ship is lying on it's side for half a year. I don't know what the seabed is like but I don't think it is rock or something like that.
So there is more force necessary than what is sufficient to righten the weight of the ship.

Then the picture and the linked article show that they didn't even try parbuckling but just tried to pull the ship upright with 5 harbour tugs ... No comment.

Looks to me like "Hey, we tried everything to remove it, but somehow it didn't work. So we have to leave it there, we are so sorry ..."

Best regards,
