Greetings,
Mr. Lurker. Difficulties? I don't think so. Seems it ended up exactly where they wanted it. Hardly nudged it's neighbors at all. Pretty slick I'd say.

A "docking" bully. What was that all about? Why not anchor the ship offshore rather than crashing ashore and shoving aside other boats? ... Talk about supposed-professional sailors gone crazy.

That boat on the left has nice lines and would make a heck of a trawler. Can't see why some of these things are at the breakers, unless hull plating is wasted???

Every time I see something like that it gets me. Rationally, I know sometimes an old boat, ship, house or building just needs to be broken up. But my non-rational side still hates to see it. Until my greedy side kicks in and wants all that cool stuff they're going to rip out of it. Did you notice both radar arrays were going? Odd.
