Salvage news:


Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. has reported that the MOL-operated car carrier Cougar Ace, which was disabled at sea, south of the Aleutian Islands on Monday, July 24, and is now moored at Dutch Harbor in the Aleutian Islands, has been restored to a nearly upright position. This completely eliminated threat of submergence and the vessel is now moored safely.

Safety measures will be executed to secure the cargo, hull, and engine of the Cougar Ace and preparations will then get under way for towing to a discharging port.
