Default Dockwise Yacht Transport: Houston, we have a problem

The mighty Servant 3 had just completed an "around the world, perfect, dry run bravo zulu!". She was transporting an oil rig & was unloading off the coast of Angola. Only one survives. 12/06

One of the Mighty Servant ships was featured on TV last week. They showed them loading/transporing an oil rig from Asia, around Cape Horn, to Texas. THat job looks to be very risky. Hope they get her refloated and back into service.

Wasn't one their ships used to bring the USS Cole back from the Mid East after being attacked?
