This ling shows the status of "The Parbuckling Project" being undertaken to refloat the Costa Concordia.

Quite a feat. They are saying 72% done.

Looks like she might swing upright next week. NBC story

Once upright the additional sponsons will be added to the other side. This will be a great Discovery Channel mini series. I wonder what the cost is?

Can't wait to see this take place. Remarkable feat if they can pull it off.
