Titan Salvage Managing Director Capt. Richard Habib talks to journalists at the foreign press club in Rome, Friday, May 18, 2012. The head of a U.S.-owned marine salvage company chosen to remove the wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship from the waters off Tuscany is predicting the vessel will be ready for towing by early next year.  Habib says the ship, now lying on its side on rocky seabed near the port of Giglio island, will be back in an upright position by the start of winter. He told reporters in Rome Friday that once afloat, the wreckage will be towed to an Italian port to be determined for demolition. Thirty-two people perished when the Concordia slammed into a reef off Giglio on Jan. 13. The Concordia's captain is under house arrest while being investigated for alleged manslaughter and abandoning ship during evacuation. (AP Photo/Roberto Monaldo, LaPresse)
