1400 cars of which 1200 are Land Rover / Jaguar confirmed by manufacturer. 65 Minis and 70 to 80 construction plant equipment / JCB. Bentley confirmed none on board, but a few BMW's.

@ Pete. Rolls only make about 3,000 cars a year. Bentley about 10,000. So 1800 would be too high a number for either of these. It would be more than 50% of Rolls annual production and about 25% of Bentley's made per year. Doubt they would ever export in that high numbers per month.

I now see the press is reporting the cargo to be 1400 Rollers and Bentleys. As we say in South Africa: Eish!

Hi Chris,
Sorry to hear of your health problem, I have a similar one myself these days.
You did very well to get these shots so thank you for sharing then with us.
Kind regards
Ken

Hoegh Autoliners said the ship "suffered a heavy list earlier yesterday evening after leaving Southampton Port". Therefore could be deliberate beaching to save the ship. Reply to Paul Wille ..there are reports of crashing and banging inside hull which suggests cargo breaking loose and resting on the starboard side.
Also went aground near high water and tides are now dropping. Next time = high water is reached is 19th January and the maximum level to be gained will only be 0.3 metre for the foreseeable future

I expect this photo is going to get hectic links...and hits.

Kudo's to Chris Hunsicker for taking the effort.

Thanks Ken, arthritis is stopping me getting out more but could not afford to miss this one. All photos taken from the shore using a council waste bin instead of a tripod for stability.

Finally an opportunity to see how a vehicle carrier looks from the top!

As kelvin mentions in the forum, she passed the Brambles Buoy ad did a "U" turn to port (see AIS track), maybe steering problems and the rudder is in this position trying to correct. Will have to wait for the official report.

Has enemy one seen the rudder look lik it was left to starboard is that why she hit the sand bank ?

There was the Bulk Jupiter as well all but one crewman lost RIP. The theory is the cargo of Bayxite. If that's the case the poor guys never stood a chance. turned into liquid Yes a terrible few weeks for shipping.

What a terrible 2 weeks for the shipping industry! First Norman Atlantic's fire, then the sinking of the Cemfjord, and now this! Luckily no casualties are to be affiliated with this particular incident.

Another MSC Napoli situation I presume ?
I guess that cargo, if she's carrying any, will have shifted. I suppose they'd have to unload it before they can recover her from that angle.
