The operation to float the "Transocean Winner" onto the "Hawk" was unlikely to begin for another two days.
High winds have so far prevented a salvage team from moving the rig. Until the weather has improved, the rig remained connected to eight anchors in Broad Bay on the east side of Lewis. It had been hoped to begin the operation to move the "Transocean Winner" at the weekend.
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency said this work was now unlikely to start for at least two days.

On Sep 24, 2016, the "Bastø I" suffered engine failure off Horten. There were 87 people on board at that time. The ferry was anchored in strong winds off Horten after the engine stopped shortly after midnight. A tug was sent to the ship, and at 3.42 a.m. on Sep 25 the ferry was safe in port. The ferry is running regularly between Horten and Moss. There were eight crew members and 79 passengers aboard. Earlier in the evening, at 7.30 p.m., the "Bastø" already had reported technical problems. The ferry lost engine power and nearly slammed inton the container terminal in Moss, but the crew reacted quickly, dropped the anchor and saved the situation. The engines could be started again, and the ship docked 20 minutes late. When the problems were sorted out, the ferry was put into service on the Oslofjord again.
