PANJIM: The authorities are keeping their fingers crossed as salvage company Arihant Ship Breakers is expected to attempt to tow the grounded M V Lucky 7 from Miramar beach on Saturday. Sources told Herald that the company officials had positioned the crane barge around the vessel on Friday in a bid to prepare for the final exercise.

“The crane barge will be anchored at a particular location from where it will pull the huge vessel through steel wire rope into deep waters. However, all this depends on the water tide and weather. Today (Friday) the crane barge was at Miramar beach as a part of the preparation for the final exercise. It sailed back later on and will be brought again when the vessel will be towed,” the source said. 

Some of the damaged portion of the casino vessel was being repaired on Friday. The vessel will be towed by the shortest route.
