Shen Neng 1 - weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen

COMMENT: Here's a line from ABC's most recent effort covering the coal carrier Shen Neng 1 that raised a smile: Shen Neng 1 Sets Sail "The damaged Chinese coal carrier Shen Neng 1 anchored off Hervey Bay has set sail for Gladstone in central Queensland...
Yesterday, the last of the 19,000 tonnes of coal to be unloaded was removed, and the ship has now set sail to await a deep-sea tug.
Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) says it is expected to arrive off the Gladstone coast on Sunday morning." 

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by. Weigh the anchor, splice the mainbrace and hoist the mizzen. We're on our way home lads....aye aye capt'n.
