    I think we're more aligned to the people in the North these days

    Of course! There'll be room on the one way cruise for them too - A seat at the top table no less! Guests of honour!

    Question

    Sage said :--> Guests of honour!

    Perhaps he got it WRONG ??

    Many persons would have been inclined to substitute "P" instead of the "Gu" letters !

    The best thing about this is we get to poke fun at it all we want because there is no way to prove definitively innocent/guilty unless someone spills the beans or a critical piece of salvage found.

    So many talented comedians in HK (≖‿≖)

    The marine department have released a vaguely worded statement suggesting that Jumbo may or may not have sunk.

    The Chinese version uses the word "ocean surface" implying that it has capsized but not sunk

    you might need to change the thread title though you need to condense your wording

    Jumbo Restaurant - Inversely Submerged?

    Could very well be. Maybe it's partially bouyant. At 100 metres it would be salvageable (challenging but possible).

    Still no photos... the only media outfits that might have had the $$ to hire a chopper/small plane/vessel out to the site to get photos no longer exist .

    Not sunk but what can they do. Try to tip it back over? Continue on its journey to the shipyard that Aberdeen is likely to say is no longer interested and not obliged to take it anymore because value is different...

    Still can't disprove/prove anything. We will continue to party on ( >ᴗ<๑ )♥
