She's afloat again now after a tug, the Anglican Prince, that may be scrapped in the spending cuts has helped get her clear of the sand banks. I sincerely hope they were just sandbanks as there is much less likelihood of damage except to egos
It could have been worse. They could have taken one of the Skye bridge supports out as they ran into it. The sonar can cover 3000 square miles around the vessel but maybe not the most important bit of potential contact!
All's well that ends well... and now the further costs of checks and enquiries! Perhaps they will be more Astute with navigation after that lol
In fairness, though, I think I should wait until the facts are known why this happened before pointing too much fun. There could be a very legitimate reason that was outside of human factors and navigational error.
