Damage Assessment

By KingArthur
Another one from the wreck site, this time capturing surveyors taking a good look at the extent of the hull damage. The site has been buzzing with activity over the past fortnight but little progress seems to have been achieved in dislodging this fine vessel, if at all. Each time I descend onto the site, I feel rather broken-hearted watching this crippled princess lying there wedged onto the rocky foreshore, helpless as she looks ..... perhaps with some improved weather approaching, she will finally be hauled back in and towed in for much needed repairs. Hope you enjoy the shot.
