The german mine-sweeper Grömitz went hard aground today. This happened on the west coast of norway. Instead of massive info, have a look at this site, for a truly stunning shot:

Ok, please correct me if I am wrong, but aren't minesweepers special purpose ships equipped with sensitive, clutter-piercing sonar designed to locate even small objects in shallow coastal waters?

Apparently this model had that pesky defect that prevents it from working when it is not turned on.

Spectacular (albeit embarassing) photos!

They will try to pull her off with the assistance of the AHTS Bourbon Dolphin.

Today I received a personal E-mail from mr.Björn Röhlich;
I understand he wasn't so glad with the Comments placed!!!???
I replied and explained my vision...
He was an Officer on board the vessel; but not at this trip...
We must respect the crew!!
I did!!!...

kind regards

Heh...
Do you think they were too fast and unwatchful? No indeed, they were very watchful, they wanted to jump over the rock, but did not have enough speed
