Brunswick wreck removal

I found an article about the ongoing removal of the capsized car carrier in Georgia that has a lot of detail photos in one place:

Nice. Most detailed article I’ve seen on that operation.

Thanks for sharing.

The sound of that chain making the cuts must roughly resemble a soundtrack from one of the lower circles of hell.

I was wondering if there are any residential or marinas around the ship? It would certainly be annoying.

Says the cutting chain broke at some point, and they fixed that with a new link of some kind. Would like to see that link (15" chain links). Just peen it over with a jackhammer?

I bet they didn't get it at Ace Hardware or Fisheries!

My friends there said it wasn't all that loud on shore. When the chain was cutting underwater, you really could barely hear it.

I may get another update any day.
