Latest update on the Shamrock states that U.S. District Judge George Singal has ordered an auction of the ship and remaining cargo if the parties do not settle within 60 days. The auction date is for November 12th in Portland.
Meanwhile the crew is still aboard, somewhat worn down by their vigilent and arduous duties. A case could be made that they may have earned a long stay in an alcohol treatment facility. The crew is owed about $86,000 in back wages but probably some of their claim might be reduced due to the likely "shrinkage" of the cargo.
