Foreship was too heavy to be lifted
The salvage of the "Klipper" did not go ahead as planned on Feb 23. The foreship was too heave to be raised by the 160-tons-crane "Hebolift 5". Workers first had to weld off a part to reduce the weight so that it finally could be lifted into the hold of the barge "Beugen" only at midday where the stern had already been deposited on Feb 20. In the afternoon the preparations to raise the midbody started which will, if everything goes according to plan, be investigated by experts on Feb 24 because this is the section where the ship broke in two.

 Color Magic  (Passenger Ship > Passenger Ro Ro Cargo Ship)
153 days ago by Timsen

Second medevac within 48 hours
Only two days after the last medevac another time an ill passenger had to be disembarked from the "Color Magic" shortly after the departure in Kiel on Feb 23, 2016. The lifeboat "Berlin" was alerted short past 3 p.m. and speeded towards the ferry which was at Kiel l/h. The "Color Magic" stopped at the northern fairway edge, and the lifeboat went alongside at 3.30 p.m. The 80 year old German passenger was transferred aboard the "Berlin" in wave heights of 1,5 meters and NW winds of 5-6 Beaufort strength on a stretcher. He was taken to Laboe port where an ambulance was waiting to take him to hospital in Kiel.

 Modern Express  (Ro Ro Cargo Ship > Vehicles Carrier)
154 days ago by Timsen

Modern Express back on even keel
The "Modern Express" was back on even keel on Feb 22 at noon with only a slight list of five degrees remaining. The cause of the severe list has not yet been released. The vessel will be returned to her owners, European Roro Lines, which will have to decide whether to unload the cargo early or to continue on with her intended journey. Before departure, however, her systems will have to be checked for any damage due to the prolonged period of operation and tow at severe angles of list.
