    Has this ever happened before…. I just think it’s odd that all these years and now someone gets stuck?

      @Jason B That was a bit tongue firmly in cheek, the 2016 one was some 350m long, smaller but still giant, mostly it didn’t block the canal because it didn’t get stuck in the narrowest a part of it and also they got it off the banks fast. Otherwise it was a similar case, engine trouble causing loss of control and grounding.
      Technical trouble happens and sometimes it happens in the most inconvenient of situations.
