I hope it gets back on the rails.

I find this interesting, a hull split if we are to believe the facts.

Now y'all are bringing trains into the mix? They don't even belong near the water.

5) delamination
6) the head overflowed?? lol jk

Am I missing any?
I think someone mentioned an aftermarket bow thruster.

I hope we get more info. I'd like to know if it was avoidable when being built, design fault, employee dealing with nasty personal shit that caused them to slack up etc.

Standup guy, let the owner come forward and give us the straight scoop if he/she so desires. All the armchair QB's are speculating doesn't mean sh#t until the truth is known.
