    Re: Turkish AIS Data--It appears the ship did pass between the two rocks

    I don't buy it! This is the same original source of information, and I suspect it's a hoax (not you --them). There are plenty of other sources of AIS data which do not show this. On the other hand, they show no detail at this level.

    The problem remains that the channel between the rocks is too narrow and too shallow. Sure, at the surface, the gap between the rocks is about 200 feet, and the ship is 120 feet wide. But thirty feet down? If the vessel had gone through that gap, it would have ripped the bottom right off, and the ship would have sunk in five minutes or less. Going through that gap also requires a captain who is near mad or suicidal. There are plenty of nuts out there, but so far this strikes me as a far-fetched hypothesis.
