Wouldn't feel relaxed being a passenger on the 'renovated' Costa Concordia....not from the photos.

Guess that's what mean when they say you don't want to see how they make bologna.

A number of ships sunk in WWII were refloated and went back into combat.  However, those were American workers. :patriot:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
