It is longer.
It is approx. 12,500 miles to circumnavigate Africa, at a container ships average speed of 24 knots that equates to roughly 20 days.

The ship in the Suaz Canal that they will blame some of the shortages on, is mind blowing They can't figure out how to move it could take "weeks"... here's a thought, its at an angle, so get another big ship stick a fair amount of tractor tyres to the front, and steadily push the fooking thing back straight... Jesus christ the games the little bas*ards play and its so easily seen through unless totally fooking blind
It needs 33,000 tonnes to move it
The most powerful towing boat (Far Samson) in the world can pull 420 tonnes
You would need 80 of those and there are only ONE in the world!!
They are going to have to take each container off but that is normally done with cranes and specialist equipment
