  2. Being a Master Mariner and running a Maritime academy I have been following the accident of MV Costa Concordia from the day it happenened on 12th Jan 2012 till date when it is being towed away to its final destination the scrapyard. Like we humans all die likewise most ships after seving its lifetime goes to a scrapyard, unless ofcourse like Titanic they sink. Very unfortunate such a grand ship had such a short life of being in service. I admire the designers for building such a vessel and equally admire the salvage operators to reflaot the vessel and now to tow her to her final destination
    Best wishes to all who have helped in this great endevour
