    Marine Traffic, (with live AIS,) shows how close the anchored Virginia was to the Genoa/Tunis ferry route (don't know if this is formally a shipping lane.) Not that this excuses t boning an anchored vessel, of course.

    I wondered too about that just pre impact to port course change of Ulysse, like she was aiming for midships of the anchored Virginia.

    I suspect Ulysse keeps on post impact pushing to close off the hole a bit, so Virginia's pumps plus the ones that probably have been brought on board can keep up with the water ingress, hence the snail shell shaped spiral in the track after the collision.

    Here's all I know for now...

    ‘‘ French officials said Thursday the ships separated at about 9:30 p.m. due to the combination of wave action and previous attempts to release the vessels. ’’

    Note Virginia's paint marks on Ulysse's bulwarks and topsides, she's out here for about 1 meter (± 3' 3 3/8") already, I'll guess.

    gCaptain ---> article 4 ‘‘ Ulysse Heads to Port Day After Detaching from Containership in the Mediterranean ’’

    [​IMG]

    ‘‘ The containership, the CSL Virginia, remains in place, at anchor surrounded by anti-pollution boom as the owner makes preparations for her transit to a shipyard. ’’

    [​IMG]

    ‘‘ Pockets of thick fuel oil are continuing to be tracked and cleaned up by anti-pollution vessels. ’’

    Just saw I've missed gCaptain's article 2 on this matter, so what I've earlier named and linked as article 2 - 3 - 4 are actually gCaptain's article 3 - 4 - 5 about this mediterranean forced ‘love’ affair . . o_O
    So here's the missed and by now old news: gCaptain ---> article 2 ‘‘ Response Continues for Mediterranean Ship Collision as Oil Slick Grows ’’

    [​IMG]

    ‘‘ Photo shows the size of the oil spill off the coast of Corsica. ’’
