    Though hopefully not with the same consequences as the Exxon Valdez back in '89.

    Luckily it's on silt and it's double hulled.

    That doesn't mean it's ok, but it should mean no holes for the time being and enough time to drain it if it came to it.

    Hopefully they'll just re-float it though.

    Let's hope not - I doubt the Alaskan people can deal with another 15 years waiting for a settlement :rolleyes:

    Well, if that doesn't pan out for you all, there's always global warming... soon, Alaska might be as warm as, oh, Minnesota is now!
