Can't see why people here are doubting a story in the journal of record, the Suffolk Gazette. The logical next step would be to weld a hydrodynamic bow and stern section on to each container. They could then be pulled along with ropes by camels walking on some sort of path alongside the Suez Canal. Alternatively, one container could be provided with an engine and propeller in the stern section and could pull along another container with a rope. Some crazy people would want to live in the containers. Journalists would write rose tinted articles about these people and their weird homes in the down market press, but not the Suffolk Gazette, which is much too sensible.

I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the vessel is kept in the Great Bitter Lake until the legal and insurance liabilities are agreed and guaranteed. It is an ideal spot to arrest a vessel.

Surprise, surprise! See above that I posted on Monday.

Waste of effort - that's what the jebus is for.  One tug, one jebus and as many square containers as you can pull.

There is a suitable tug and jeebus for sale at the moment. £40,000 all in. The Suez Canal navigation people need to get their offer in.
