It's obvious these things are GIGANTIC, but when you compare the size of the ship to the Excavator at the bow, it's mind boggling.

I went alonga road that ran beside the Suez canal in Egypt about 20 years ago.
It was weird looking up at the ships on the canal because the road was lower than the canal was.

Egypt is old school... women don't work out side of the home. And if they did, it wouldn't be digging  ;)

That looks alot more like the Ribble Link than I first thought  :o

Surely shifting some ballast and reversing the ship off would be quicker that a bloke in a digger?

Not according to Denholm(?) shipping, on radio 4 this AM, getting cranes that can reach 200'(?) to the site etc., will take a week or so.
