So, no control of the vessel, and taking on water? Good call in normal weather. Putting the CG into hurricane winds to save your keister? Not so much.....

How very sad. I was fortunate to be able to photograph this beautiful ship when she and her crew visited our Plymouth Harbor this past summer. I have photos if crew also, and I pray all will recover from this experience, and that there is no loss of life.
Prayers sent for all involved...
