A beauty long gone, but not forgotten...SS Norway (France)

This was my first experience delving into Alang and ship-breaking in general. To say it was educational would qualify as understatement.

Oh, glad I'm not the only one that got the video...got the tapes of older ships, too. I'm anxiously awaiting the next volume of Alang...will get them both on DVD. And the older CDs he made that are out of production which he hopes to get onto DVD. CJ

Oh man, that hurts . . .
Anyone know when the next MAX high tide will hit Alang? That may be the last of her days

I wonder how they would beach her -
There was a documentry on Alang and they showed a couple ships being beached. The doomed ship would crank up her engines to the max for one last gasp while a shore team guided them in (compensating for wind and currents etc)
Sounds like the "Blue Lady" does not have any power of her own, so tugs would have to "throw" her at the shore ?
I still think that when the next highest-high tide is due in Alang... Doesn't that have to do with the phases of the moon?

If someone offered you millions of dollars for some "trash" that you were having trouble getting rid of, what would YOU do??

GEEEEEZ

You would think that Star would be more than happy to let the new owners pass on the "sale" clause in the contract and let someone buy her and make her into a hotel. It makes one wonder why they don't want to see her as a hotel, I thought they wanted to make her hotel for their casino business. Something smells funny here.
