      They've set their status as "stopped"…

        Not entirely inaccurate I suppose...

          That explains all the RNLI launches on their Twitter from around there last night thought it must be something big. All safe which is the main thing.
          Then theres the ship off scotland that sunk or as the BBC said found overturned missing its 8 crew not good. Shipping seems to be in the news a lot with stolen ships laden with migrants on crash courses with the the Italian coast etc.

            It has certainly been a bad week for the shipping industry.

              I've heard a rumour that the cargo shifted during the turn around the Brambles. If you look at her AIS track it seems like she just continued the turn until she went aground?
              They told me I was gullible and I believed them.

                That would make sense, if she had a bad list it might have been difficult to straighten her back up onto a new heading, depending on her hull form.

                Good chance that cargo would have already been unlashed / unchocked if they were arriving in port. I guess only the inquiry will tell.

                  I've heard 2 things so far, one suggesting it was steering/engine failure. The other said that was wrong, and the ship had been re ballasting, and moved all the fuel from port to starboard, creating the list. The pilot then apparently grounded it intentionally to prevent a total capsize.

                  I saw both on Facebook, from an anonymous source, so take it as you will...

                    All very reassuring to read this winter as a cadet due to leave for phase 2 in February...

                        Looks like the second rumor is correct, at least partially.

                          Keep calm cupcake, you probably have better odds on winning a lottery jackpot.

                            3D recreation. I think the accuracy of the source information has to be questioned when the Pathfinder is seen to sail straight through the hull of the Osaka twice, in the second video
