Ouch!

I know everyone has seen this. It is pretty amazing, the ferry hit exactly where a row of cars were parked on that whole breakwater.
The Old Man must have been freaking.
They said power failure but there was stack smoke. Maybe it was Merlyn's azipod clutch gizmos!

JK, think this one might be on shafts?

No idea...probably is. Maybe the fuel efficiency software locked the telegraphs in full ahead. Or a nut fell off the governor. Or maybe water in pneumatic controls keeping the controls ahead. Or the main engine has engine driven pumps and kept running showing exhaust at the stack while everything else was dead. Or maybe it was a boiler. Inquiring minds are curious!

How's about one engines turbo bearings kaput,it's running on its own engine oil, shutting the fuel off will do nothing at all and it's revving well over its governed rpm?
Totally out of control situation.
Maybe something to put in the equation?

From Vessel Tracker:

After a problem in the electrical panel of the rudder was left inoperative for a few minutes when the ship was about to leave the port of Luz in the direction of Tenerife. The investigation will be carried out parallel to the file that has opened by the Maritime Captaincy of Las Palmas after the incident.


This is a good one.
Can' wait to find out what happened to the emergency power supply.

Everywhere else they are reporting a blackout.
Here's some pictures:
