Almost, but not quite. Compare the position of the chap's arms.

Looks (per Marinetraffic) that boatie is still stuck and the tide should now be dropping. If they don't get her off tonight, she may be around for at least a couple of weeks. Meanwhile somebody might be able to bag some cheap cement (collection only). 

[Edit] I see the lifeboat is heading back to Douglas*. I hope all stay safe whatever the outcome.

*Nope, just to Ramsey.

Ah they used the other one, you’re right. Both are mine. 
 

Anyway, we have our own version of the Suez Canal meme now.

Then thank you for the photos Amadeus. I'm not sure the meme is quite accurate though. In reference to the housing crisis, surely Tynwald would be actively making the situation worse (CS pension funding needs population bloat, whatver the consequences)?

Word on the beach is the cable/rope snapped as Carter was trying to pull it off (yes I know how that sounds).

At the risk of becoming an armchair salvage expert (to add to the many that revealed themselves during the 'big green boat' escapade); I was a little surprised that the stern anchor wasn't used as a kedge anchor to help secure the ship and possibly haul off against. It will be interesting to see what other techniques may be deployed between now and tonight's high tide. Good luck to all involved.

These captions are all wrong. The top one should read "Public Sector Pensions".

The bottom one should read "Joe Taxpayer".
