    Ship in the harbour

    This ship has been out in the harbor with those blocks on board for a few days now. Today it's partially submerged. Anyone know what's going on here?

    possibly part of the Wanchai Bypass construction...undersea seawall or summat...they could be floating the blocks into place...semisubmersible barge is a common method...

    or part of the cruise ship terminal construction (judging by the location...)

    That doesn't look like a partially submerged boat. A tugboat pulling something?

    Eh, well, whatever you call it when about 2/3 of it is under water.

    Yes there was one there a few months ago doing the same thing.

    Only problem was the company in charge didn't inform the port authority last time (or just forgot) and created a bit of a ruckus from travellers ricking 911 and they had a visit from the rescue team!

    It's Movingin07, she is working in Central this week so she's parked her house in the Harbour. She made so much money it sunk the boat.
