Endurance to return to UK as deck cargo

HMS Endurance, which came a cropper off Chile last December and suffered a flooded engine room, will be returned to the UK as deck cargo aboard Dockwise's newly converted ship Target. The 8000nm journey is expected to take a month, Endurance should be back in the UK by the end of March. The damage to Endurance's engines meant it could not make the journey back to Portsmouth on it's own. Target, Dockwise say, is a semi-submersible heavy left vessel.

Likely something like this will be used
