I'm no expert but wouldn't it be slightly easier to crane it free from the shore?

It is a very heavy ship with containers on board.. 

 

They will need to off load a ton of cargo before trying something like that.

Well let’s see...it would take a month or more to set up a crane big enough to remove the containers if a big enough crane even exists.

Yet a couple more tugboats will be able to dislodge it?

Going to take days to get cranes big enough to unload those containers. Dreging equipment is probably a few days away as well.

 

Our European  posters might want to go stock up on things, shelves could get a little barren for awhile.

People are taking the piss however as usual you are on point.

I heard oil had gone up over 5% , 1 million barrels a day go through the channel.

A large volume of the world's products pass through the Suez Canal and Europe will probably be the hardest hit in terms of both import and export.
