    It must be very frustrating for ships' crews, keep on having land put in their way.

    If only they'd had more than 50 minutes warning they were heading into danger.

    I have always mused on the benefit of lobbing some HE into the vicinity.
    If that doesn’t wake them up ....

    No one in the helm and not keeping a proper lookout. Not only did this ship run aground but it could just have easily have run down another ship or yacht. I hope the relevant crew are arrested and charged.

    Agreed.
    Extraordinary incompetence.

    Fortunate that ship is carrying steel coils not something nasty.

    PS I notice that the ship is flying a French courtesy flag on starboard side of mast. Hoisted after they went aground?

    Cheap crews come 10 to the penny.

    If unsafe practices and procedures played a part in this, then the owners must also be held to account. Else it's just window dressing.

    Amusing to read the owners' web site: https://www.wtlogistic.de/en/ (shows pics of MV Rhodanus).
