I could only access a fragment of the most recent August 13th update:
"Creditor wants to sell seized container ship

Byline: GREGORY D. KESICH Staff Writer A 400-foot container ship anchored in Portland Harbor for the past three weeks may soon be put up for sale.
And its 11 crew members may soon be able to bring the ship to a dock.
Lawyers for Fortis Bank of the Netherlands are requesting permission to sell the Shamrock, which was seized by federal marshals last month over an alleged $14 million loan default by the ship's French owner.
The owners have until Monday to tell a judge in writing why the ship shouldn't be sold."
