My money's on a ballast system failure and a rapid heeling moment as she rounded the bank. Check out the Cougar Ace ballast system malfunction five years ago off Alaska...

That's well on the bank and I don't reckon it will be afloat anytime soon, we are coming into spring tides and that will be the best time, but not for a few days,, how do you rock something that big, my thought is that they will try slew it round but the tides up now and it's nowhere near floating, best of luck to them

I know one case where rudder jammed at a steep angel due to broken relay, not possible to override on the bridge. It takes plenty of time before manual override can be done from engine rom. Thats one possible cause.

Just the sort of incident you'd see reported here:
The Law Offices of Countryman & McDaniel
Sadly, it's no longer updated.😞

I popped out to it from Poole earlier today, damn cold out today, saw a lot of ribs heading for yarmouth and the nacho run. Took some pics of the vessel aground, very dramatic up close.
