  1. More detailed photo of the damage.
    It is apparent the merchant vessel must have been overtaking and hit McCain while on a course about 45 degrees to the right of McCain’s heading. McCain must have been moving very slowly

    Thanks to Luke for this photo and the one that leads off the post.
