Most salvage casualties are refloated after grounding but occasionally a ship will need to be raised from a depth, sometimes shallow, sometimes deep, but irrespective of the depth, once a casualty disappears below the surface, it presents a salvor with additional problems, mainly associated with the control of list and trim during the refloating operation. This paper describes three case histories and the methods used to successfully raise the vessels.
