    Default Boat/Oil loss ??

    Ok, so far people in LA,AL can't fish anymore. Some of the boats have been hired out. What about the smaller boats, what happens if they shut the entire gulf down for a year or two to do study's ? Boats will be worthless. Sure a few people will pull to the East coast but very few. There are millions of boats with no where to fish, nobody to sell them to. Is it possible to get a lawsuit going if we get to this point and get something going against BP or will we just have to take it up the butt? If I were in AL or LA i'd be filing already for loss of use. I know i'm just a little piss ant part of this pie, but hey I do have a small financial interest. Just thinking ahead! frank

    Meanwhile, researchers are beginning to obtain a clearer picture of the spill as they analyze water samples. For example, marine scientists found a 100-foot-thick layer of oil 1,300 feet below the surface about 45 miles from the well site


    pulled this off article 100 ft thick !!!!!! SAD

    Come on a little sense here 100 foot thick layer of oil @1300 feet.
    OIL FLOATS. Now some sense, maybe what they saw was a layer of plankton that usually shows up in big time at this time of the year. All the oil plume videos I've seen looked like plankton just below the surface for a few feet or yards and an Oil slick on the surface. I went night diving about three weeks ago and there was a dense layer of light brown stuff that looked like emulsified oil at first glance. After shining my light into it you could see Tiny Tiny creatures flipping around all through the area plus really small fish. Hopefully it is plankton and not oil.

    Word is that the a side effect of the chemical dispersant they're applying at the leak is that the oil stratifies rather than firing right to the surface.

    Sucks to be a squid, whale, or anything else trying to swim through that mess.

    What you say makes sense, but does that hold true at lower temperatures?

    I would say yes does the oil float off of Alaska? yes it does and it's below 32 degrees up there.

    100 foot thick oil can't be too dispersed.
