Front part of MSC Napoli - bye bye

I had previously blogged that the bow section of the MSC Napoli would shortly be towed to Belfast to be broken up. This happy event started yesterday afternoon and it's estimated that the tow will take five days to complete. The met office are suggesting that the weather could turn wet and windy round about Tuesday so fingers crossed that they can get to the Harland and Wolff yard by then.

This still leaves the aft section of Napoli with the accommodation block just off the coast at Branscombe so the locals may not be uncorking the champagne just yet!
