Work Continues Refloating Costa Concordia

Tuesday and Wednesday may not seem to be dramatic days since the ship isn't moving, but there are two important projects being completed so technicians can finish refloating the ship, scheduled for Thursday.

The project was more fully explained in Tuesday's edition of Cruise News Daily.

This photo, from a dive Monday, shows one of the chains running under the ship that secures one of the starboard sponsons.

This illustration shows Costa Concordia as it was resting against the hill and on the underwater platform.

This illustration shows the ship floated up slightly and pulled away from the hill.
Note the starboard sponsons could now be fully lowered to their proper positions.
