This is the largest ship that parbuckling -- the technical term for righting a capsized vessel -- has ever been tried on. Normally the ship would have been blown apart, but that was not an option in this case because the ship was filled with noxious substances and there were two bodies still missing, according to officials with the salvage operation.
