La Grace update

Sadly the brig La Grace still lays foundered on El Cable beach in Marbella (4.8711519 ° W, 36.5072692 ° N) (see post below) while her condition is getting worse everyday.

The good news is that the salvage operation now seems to be underway. The owners seem to have come to terms, somewhat, with the insurance company and a dredging company has been found that will try to carry out the task of putting her back afloat, before she is broken up by the pounding waves.

Let’s hope that will happen as soon as possible and that it will go smooth. Hopefully La Grace is not too much damaged. As far as I can understand, the insurance company will pay for the repair of the damages, but not the salvage – so help is still needed.

The plan seems to be to take her to the port of Algeciras, where she will be hauled out for repairs.

Main thing is that she is afloat before any major damage happens, then the financial problems and legal aspects can be solved, I hope.
