Ship breaking up

A scary scene as this ship enters Anglet/Bayonne port (nr France/Spain Atlantic border).

All the crew were rescued, although they must have had their doubts for a while...

Re: Ship breaking up

I don't think that will buff out. It'll need 5200.

Like the guy being winched down to the ship. Theres a job for the office junior who just started Monday. "Hey, boy, you wanna work with helicopters? Well, have we got a little task for you!"
