Thunderhorse nearly level. All ballast ports sealed

The Platform is almost level, only about 5 degrees worth of list still remaining. Smit has apparently done a bang-up job getting this thing sorted in record time. Details are still sketchy, but the BP status reports keep discussing ballast inlet ports being sealed up. This still leads me to believe someone failed to seal them prior to it being floated off of the Blue Marlin in Corpus Christi. BP's latest status report can be found here. They appear to be well on thier way to getting this thing ready to weather another storm, apparently none too soon.
