Maybe someone with some maritime knowledge could tell me how the heck has this container ship block the canal I always thought there would be a pilot and even tugs at hand .

I have no maritime knowledge but I think I read that there was a power cut on the boat.

I wonder how big the ships were when the canal was built.


I would bet that the size of ships has increased massively while the width of the canal has changed very little.

was widened 6 years ago to take ships of this size.
