Evergreen is the name of the Shipping Line and they give their ships names starting with Ever, in this case Ever Given.

Or were you trolling for an answer? If so you got one.

Nobody likes a smart arse! I meant 200000 tons! So I was correct. 30% sounds more believable rather than the full weight of the ship the bloke in the noddy video claimed.

I like smart arses. Most of my friends always know more than me as they keep telling me.

The Ever Given is still in the Suez Canal, there are a couple of tugs nearby so I wonder if they are doing a safety inspection still, it was due in Rotterdam at 02:00 this morning.

My son flies to Egypt tomorrow. He is a plasterer and can have a look at it.
