Default Floating the Coasta Concordia; one veeery expensive Salvage op.

Cost is 500 million pounds to float it and tow it away

Since it will be scrapped, why not just break it into manageable chunks whilst it is underwater then lift and haul off the chunks? I assume enviromental regulations is the answer this is a No No?

It's in Italy, so no doubt there are some good kick backs in the offing.

Is Italy really like that? Thought that was a former Soviet Bloc thing, as far as Europe goes.

Italy is not really different from the Soviet Bloc in terms of corruption, it's just the weather is more agreeable than sleet and sludge...
