@Phil: could be a reason, not a very common thing anyway.

More likely she needed to be patched up to make the tow to Aliaga possible.

Probably they discovered during drydock that it does not make sense to invest any $$$ in this ship

thanks, so I remembered correctly.. strange thing to do, working on a long time abandoned ship just months before she is sent to the breakers.

Wasn't she in drydock just a few months ago?
