Kinda hard to believe he got in that close before anything grounded. Ship looked light.

Plus hardly a massive ship, but definitely missed the buoy till it ran over it.

I️ turn my barge around like that when I️ am in the rivers, ground the front and pivot, no big deal, as a matter of fact when I️ slip my Big Boat I️ run the bow into the March and pivot around because the canal is only about 80’ across and my rose is 65’

Their starb anchor appears to be deployed. Didn't seem to slow them down much.

Mechanical, steering gear is my guess.

Propulsion looked very effective until they performed a handbrake turn.

The channel *IS* that close right there in Southport. I know the area well. It appears he may have gotten outside of the channel a bit based on the marker seen in the video. It was likely the one circled in red below.

It looks like it was a very low tide at the time. The current right there on the ebb can reach 4kn.

I saw no sign of the screw working. Looks like they lost the main engine. Tide was in strong ebb (can see the wake to the right of the green marker). Nosed the bow onto the bank, then the ebb tide carried the stern down river (and directly over the marker!!).

Engineer probably screwed up some fuel valving.

I wonder if the marker popped up on the other side.

Shame on the Charlotte Observer. exaggerations!!

shows a tanker moving past a backyard swing set and pier before hitting land. It doesn’t stop there, however. The engines continue to drive the ship forward and the tankers starts to spin completely around, sending someone in a small fishing boat scrambling out of its path.

1) I would hardly call that "moving past the swing set", which it was 1/4 mile away from.

2) I saw the fishing boat, I saw no 'scrambling' of any kind and the ship came nowhere near any location they were in.

That reporting was comical.

Anyone know any more of the story?
