    Re: QE2 grounding (was: Mercator vs. Great Circle)

    Peter;
    
    I believe you left out  the most important and surprising information.
    
    The survey showed the water depth was sufficient for the QE2 to safely pass
    over the  rock! (I don't remenber the actual depth)
    
    The real cause of the QE2 smacking the "The Queen's Bottom" was due to
    incresed SQUAT. This was the result of the captains orders to increase
    speed, to make up time as you stated.
    
    If I remember correctly, this information is courtesy of a PBS documentary
    on the incident.
