Get it?
Sorry, pal, I think you're in the wrong place.

If it's facts that you're looking for, I'm not sure this (or any Internet message board) is the place. There just aren't a whole lot of facts right now. You might want to monitor the USCG's Incident Investigation website, and traditional hard news websites. You can probably set up an automated alert to be notified when some actual reports emerge.

If, OTOH, you're looking for speculation of experienced sailors who have some keen insights, this is your place. But part of that speculation will have to include chartplotters and other navigational tools, since their speculation includes technology as enabling factors in this and other accidents.

Sorry, I think your expectations are unreasonable.
