Default Summit Repaired

According to an on line piece from the Anchorage Daily, the damage incurred last week on the Summit has been repaired. A patch was placed over the outside of the damaged ballast tank. It was then pumped dry and patched from the inside as well. The Coast Guaurd has approved the repair which will last until the Summits next scheduled dry docking in two years. Good news for everyone scheduled on this ship, which includes
Papa and Gram. Isn't it amazing what you can fix with duct tape these days.

Good to hear. Would hate to think of Summit being out of commission for a long period of time. Great ship IMHO.

Good to hear, although, I'd have thought they'd not wait until the drydock in two years.

Yes, it is a great ship, and the WAY TWEETY CARRIED ON IT, no words can tell !

Yes, CA, it's sure a good thing YOU weren't acting up the way Tweety was! ! Me thinks the stories are getting just a little twisted around here, no?
