Seems the grounding was a deliberate choice... stability issues.

Re: Navigation Marks...

Boatie,

Do you know what happened to cause the instability?

I'll bet they have it off later today on the high tide, otherwise they'll have to wait a while!

Doubt they'll have her off on the tide.. there's 1400 cars on board and a load of precast concrete... with a 45-50 degree list that's mostly slid I'll bet...
Could end up another Costa Concordia type project..
