Shipping is not my profession but I think there are different reasons for such a incident: The weather, the technologie and/or the physics if the vessels passing each other.

The embankment seems to be something, many captains try to get out of the way. I just wonder, in one year, how often this does happen, that some crews try to use their ships to drill holes in the embankments ?

Thanks, Cornelia. She was a Kiel-Canal regular in earlier times. I haven´t seen her since a kiss of the embankment during a Canal transit. :-D

Nice, and especially this is a ship I did not see before anywhere :-)
