A second attempt to dislodge an Evergreen Line container ship that has been grounded off Baltimore for almost three weeks proved unsuccessful on Wednesday.

A unified command that includes US Coast Guard (USCG) and salvor Donjon-Smit made the futile second try with seven tugs on Tuesday after dredging vast amounts of mud from around the 12,118-teu Ever Forward (built 2020).

“The attempt to refloat the Ever Forward was unsuccessful last night,” USCG petty officer 3rd class Kelly Reaves told TradeWinds.
