    Re: Huge cruise ship runs aground off Italy

    From the chart provided by Andres Ruiz it would seem probable that the vessel's position is a deliberate beaching in shallower water, probably without power.

    Had the vessel been only a very short distance to seaward she would have sunk in 30 to 40 metres of water. The hull may have been opened on an offshore isolated rock about a mile to the north and the vessel carried enough momentum to beach at the harbour.

    None of that explains why a vessel of this size is so close inshore. Could this be another case of the watchkeeper misinterpreting the radar range setting?
