Damaged ship repaired in S.F.

The Cosco Busan has been relocated to the San Francisco Shipyard, south of AT&T Park, where steel plates are being patched over the tear in the container ship’s hull.

“It’s not a complicated task,” said Jim Lawrence, a spokesman forthe ship’s owner.

The steelwork will be inspected by naval architects before it’s ready to set sail, accordance to Lawrence, which will likely happen in the coming “days or weeks.”

Permanent repairs are likely to be finished at a Pacific Ocean shipyard.

“They’ll take the ship back to the Pacific and get it back onto its trading schedule,” Lawrence said. “Then they’ll try to position it in a shipyard when it’s most convenient for its schedule.”
