Shaft coupling has broke

That will ruin anyone day however if needed she could put to sea on a single screw like invincible did in 1982

Dry docking her will naturally be the best result get it repaired and under way again

Another source showed the vessel stopping enroute to destination.

Quote:
Later A source told me that divers were sent down to determine what was wrong after issues were noticed onboard, and once they returned, the divers had concerns over the starboard propellor shaft. I was told that the shaft itself appears to be damaged, but I don’t believe it’s appropriate to comment on the extent of any potential damage at this stage, given the specifics of any damage cannot be confirmed.

Wouldn’t be the first time a ship run over a partially submerged CONEX box
