50,000 ton cargo ship beached on Brambles Bank about 2 miles offshore in the Solent just off Cowes ,Isle of Wight.The ship started to list after leaving Southampton docks so the pilot on board instructed the captain to beach her on the bank rather than capsize in the busy shipping lane.Loaded with new cars!

This happened on Saturday,a few tides have been and gone,at low tide folks have played cricket on that bank,just to give an idea how shallow it is there.Will be no easy task that is for sure.The Solent is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world so the ship is better off on the bank and not blocking the main narrow channel.

That means both my new 2015 Aston Martin DB9 and my 2015 Bentley Continental GT are both going to be late.
Crap. I was really looking forward to the new models.

My 2014 models are getting so old, I just don't know how the butler still drives them.

An amazing stuff up I'd say

Seems illogical that the cars weren't secured probably and the load actually shifted? Was there sufficient ballast water on board, seems there wasn't, and she was bobbing about top heavy, surely there are checks and balances in place before departure??

"At a press conference in Southampton on Tuesday, Bram Sperling of salvors Svitzer said there was some water inside because of a "small opening in the vessel" that had since been closed."

"An MCA spokesman said on Tuesday calculations by the salvors had revealed more water had entered the vessel than previously thought."

"Svitzer had hoped to refloat the vessel at high tide but this was delayed after the discovery of more water on the vessel."

I wonder if the Rolls met a watery fate.

It has been reported that one of the new pieces of plant equipment broke free and punched a hole in the ship,which is why the water was found.
