Original damage? Like Wilk, I missed that. I'll go take another google...

Yes there does seem to be a bit of confusion here...

I orginaly read that the vessel struck a submerged rock formation further away from the port and ended up where it is deliberately as a means to aid the rescue/evacuation.

Costa Concordia captain Francesco Schettino and first officer Ciro Ambrosio arrested | Mail Online


This does concur with the damage seen on the oposite side of the vessel to where the land lies.

It also explains why such a large vessel looks as if it was attempting to enter such a small port.

Looking at her AIS History suggests that she was limping around at under 2 kts for a while, which I guess supports the deliberate beaching scenario.

Well...that rock sticking out of the hull is rather free of growth-though that doesn't mean a lot as I suspect we're looking at the sheared off side.
