Thanks for confirming this Vlad. Do you have any idea what the actual weight of Sewol might be?

Super shot Vlad, and agree its history in the making.

These sheerleg cranes are really impressive and always amazing to see in action.

Nice catch as always

Yes, Jens, usually they put their lifting capacity in their names. So, this one is capable of lifting 10.000 tons, and this task does not look to be too hard for this giant.

Agree with Hannes - very impressive! Does the name "Hyundai 10000" imply that it is capable of lifting 10.000 tons?

Thanks, Hannes, for your kind words. This process is obviously headline news here in Korea, after everyone almost forgot about this casualty. I am glad I can document it.

Impressive serie Vlad.

Rgds Hannes.
