62. That ship has reverse.
Sitting still would have been a close call. Maybe scrape, maybe not. Put it in reverse, no collision. Instead, they throw it into full ahead.

And the captain of the Irwin just lied about it. Watch the video from the deck of the Japanese ship. Watch BEHIND the Gil. If it was in reverse, there would be no plume of prop wash BEHIND the ship. It was in forward gear, probably maximum power. Possibly a mistake on the pilots part, but the ship was NOT in reverse. Not until well after the collision, and the broken 'Gil is abeam of the japanese ship.
