Re: U.S. coast guard searching for ship near Bahamas
One reason for a course change might be the sea conditions. They have to take waves only in a certain way. If they had shifting cargo/leakage problem that would make even more sense. These ships are so seriously undermanned that any emergency quickly turns into a disaster.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
