Once it’s upright, the sponsons will be drained, and additional ones will be attached to the other side. They’ll all be filled with air, providing buoyancy like a giant life preserver. With luck, the liner will be towed into an Italian port, where ship breakers will spend two years turning it into scrap metal, which will be sold.
