Cleanup crew picking up hardened oil at New Carissa site.

New Carissa gets smaller and smaller

The salvaging operation of the New Carissa from the North Spit of Coos Bay/North Bend, OR. looks, to the casual observer to just be getting smaller, almost done. Not so.
The smaller it gets, the more dangerous and challenging it gets. The men of Titan are working at close to a 75 degree angle on a slippery surface, with torches and are continually pummeled by heavy surf with large waves. The more they take away, the trickier it gets.
A little thing like fog, which means that their crane operators cannot see the area they are working on further complicates things. The fog, it seems, will be with them for a while.
These guys are pros but they could use a prayer or two.
It ain't over yet.
