Container ship mishaps are pretty common.



There is a good collection of pics here:

Makes me wonder what caused that . Rogue wave , collision where we can't see the damage ? There is a prototype for everything , just haphazardly load up your model ship on a bias with a couple of melt squeezed containers on the bottom . Set up a film TV crew at dock side with on lookers .


Off loading that must call for a crack team of brave men .

That's one time where lying on your resume about that C-minus you got for "stacking blocks" in kindergarten will come back to bite you in the a$$.   :-[

I'm sorry to let you all down, but that's the revolutionary Automatic-Side-Dump-Container-Ship (ASDCS).  That was a PR photo for the debut of the new class of vessel.

Sure does.  Try riding out that kind of weather on a wooden minesweeper.  Took a 55" roll one evening when I was on the bridge.  Diesel engines going like a bat out of hell to keep up speed.  Sounded like a heavy freight train going upgrade.

Reminds me of that song " Bend Me Shape Me Anyway You Want To " . Amazing the flexibility of something that boxy , and that big .
