Not much to add, but in my younger days I was a helmsman on those Super Tankers: ULCC.
Long delay turning the wheel
over and even longer trying to stop by going full reverse.
All you get for going reverse is a slight vibration, if you are lucky
A fully loaded tanker takes a mile or two to stop if lucky.
An empty tanker less, but floating high in the water
and the propeller
half airborne, it could be longer.
We never had those crash-stop problems however, lots of tugs attached, slow speed operations and Proffesional harbor Pilots.
Not sure what happened above but I have my theories...(rolling eyes now)
