Alan, you're telling him! How do you think he earned the name "Split"?

Interesting, but it would have more interesting if it hadn't been a ship heading directly into the Breaker's. They do it all the time.

I assume they "parked" it between the two other vessels in case it decided to topple on taking the ground - apparent loss of GM and all that...

That looks like one of the old P&O Ferries "Spirit/Herald of Free Enterprise" class "jumbo-ized". Triple screw, not much below the water. Perhaps he couldn't find "Full Astern" on the bridge control.
