Nobody driving the ship, Auto pilot should not be engaged so close to shore. Idiots will be facing the un-employment lines soon.

Maybe that "fishing boat" was there to pick up a couple kilos. The drop went bad.

Texting and driving is getting way out of control.

I bet there were a couple of good sized brown trout near that fishing boat.

No doubt that is what happened. Had close calls with cell phone idiots in port myself.

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.

You can see a channel marker out beyond the ship. Guess they tried a short cut. Blaming propulsion indeed!

It's quite possibly an autopilot issue as mentioned. Leave out a way point and cut the corner instead. Good thing nobody saw. Oh wait...
