Well, since it's not fully blocking the canal, you'd have to dam it up.
Some canals have locks, but I now see the Suez is at sea level.

The Suez Canal sides are basically just soft sand, and this vessel has run aground and buried itself. 

I'm glad to see some progress is being made to free her.

Nope, this canal is alox.

Apparently, Ikea alone had nearly 110 containers on the Ever Given.  :ahhh

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/apr/13/ever-given-impounded-as-suez-canal-authority-pursues-salvage-costs

now caught in legal row between owners and Egyptian authorities reportedly seeking $900m

"The massive ship has been impounded by a court in Ismailia, as the Suez Canal Authority pursues its Japanese owners for the cost of the salvage operation and lost transit fees for the week that the canal was blocked.

About 50 ships a day pass through the canal, and more than 442 vessels were held up by the blockage.

“The vessel is now officially impounded,” Lt Gen Osama Rabie told Egypt’s state-run television. “They do not want to pay anything.”

There was no immediate comment from the vessel’s owner, Shoei Kisen Kaisha Ltd.

Rabie did not say how much money the canal authority was seeking, but the figure was reportedly $900m (£650m). Meanwhile, prosecutors in Ismailia also opened a separate investigation into what caused the Ever Given to run aground, a judicial official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to brief media."

It will be interesting to see the official report on cause and whether there will be a fine.  I haven't followed this too closely but it was very interesting to me that it was even possible to clear that ship with land based equipment.
