I like this picture of it. Gives some scale to the problem.

You'd think that the Suez Port Authority would own a tug or two big enough to move the large ships using the canal, but I guess this doesn't happen often enough to justify the cost of such a tug.

I'm sure they can push a container ship around easily. The problem is in that picture. The large hydrodynamic nose on the ship is securely embedded in the sand bank.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
You've got a nose
Like a B-52

The Bulbous Bow. What gets me is if they were broadside to a sandstorm, why didn't they drop her anchors? Ships like that usually have the Port/Starboard anchor, and sometimes a Stern anchor, so she doesn't spin (as much) while she's moored.

^^^ Like the guy with the jacked up truck in the ditch after the first snow storm.

How do we know it wasn't planned? Nobody could be THAT stupid.

Yea, because the ultimate goal of tying up so much commercial traffic to Europe is . . . .[huh]
