I saw reports that these Chinese self-created islands are sinking in the sea, hence these hardest working ships won't have to work for very long.

Hari Sud: Man made structures aka heaps of sand have a bad habit of eroding. Geologically speaking its not different than a sand castle on the beach. From day one currents and surf began to nibble away at the base and edges and saturated sand has a very low angle of repose and sloughing begins to "flatten" the pile.
