    I don't know whyhe said that because clearly we can see that they clean up quite a bit .The trailer are all gone and so do the portable potty and the red cylinder number decrease.

    Yeah it is substantial clean up work. They should be ready for naval day trial or soon after that depending on the sea condition

    And the APAR's magic sticks have been stowed, implying calibrations are complete. The sensor suite seems close to being ready which means the 002's first cruise is imminent.

    Ballast and fuel loading loading have started according to Dafengcao
    Every construction equipment except crane are all gone but lot and lot of empty life raft boxes
    The bulbous bow has totally submerged under water and a lot of wooden boxes onboard.
