Looking like shes ready to launch

If you look real close at the bow, you can see why…in this photo you can spot a couple of workmen (to the left of the bow bulb in photo).

Turns out they were there to action repairs to the ships bow-thrusters.

In this photo you can clearly see the angle the ship is on, courtesy of ballast pumped to the stern.

The Nelson Mail talk about it here.
