Firstly an observation. As Richard North posted several days ago, stock pictures of the ship in port show a large EU symbol on the bows, aft of the ship's name. Since then I have searched largely in vain for a shot of the waves lapping around the symbol as it slowly sinks beneath the sea. Aerial photos of poor definition show that it's still there, but none of the flush of hi-def close up pics of the wreck show this at all. Can there be a little bit of news manipulation here?
Secondly, many have commented that the ship is lying on the opposite side to the gash in her hull, which is counter-intuitive. I can think of only one explanation, based on the free surface effect. In a vessel with a high centre of gravity, turning to port or starboard, or even the operation of bow thrusters, may induce a 'lean' in the direction of turn. Normally this doesn't signify, but with an engine room deep in water and without longitudinal bulkheads, this may cause the mass of water to shift to the opposite side of the ship beyond the point of recovery of vertical stability. Unlike proper sea going ships like the QMII, which can take an Atlantic storm, modern cruise liners are like steel shoeboxes. If this is the case, I would expect MAIB to comment on the sea conditions in which it is safe for such British flagged vessels to operate.
