Salvage news

It's strange. Until I started reading this manga, I barely knew the salvage industry existed. In fact when Sawa introduced himself as a "salvage master" I thought it was some sort of joke! But now I can't get enough of real life salvage news. Here are two interesting articles:

High Tech Cowboys of the Deep Seas: The Race to save the Cougar Ace

Expert got vessel floating again after it was stranded near Ensenada for 10 weeks

The Cougar Ace is a car transport ship too, but on a larger scale than the Dairin Maru of recent chapters. Salvaging is a pretty manly business, come to think of it.

New laptop is all set up now, expect next chapter of Umishi in a few days if all goes well.
