    Pretty amazing that the tanker didn’t see the Utopia approaching on radar. Visually Dow didn’t on the bridge layout he may not have seen it but the radar should have picked it up.

    I have a feeling Utopia is going to stay in the Bahamas for a while since it happened in bahamian waters.

    FWIW, Utopia IV is currently undergoing repairs. He and his family were on a chartered yacht.

    eSysman on YouTube has some pretty shocking new video of the extent of below the water line damage on Utopia and other relevant video that's very interesting posted today.
