This happened in March, 2019, when the Hawk was approaching the “deep hole” just off Ingersole Shipyard where HLVs are able to “dive” to load/discharge cargo:
The NTSB Report was issued in Febr. this year:
Hawk is tankers that was converted to HLV in China in 2008. Part of that conversion was to remove tank section(s) midships to increase the L/B Factor and improve stability characteristics. This also slowed down her normal steaming speed, but improved her handling when maneuvering in port.(Addition of bow and stern thrusters also helped)
The Russian-Estonian Captain and Ch.Officer on Hawk had been in Pascagoula several times before and was well acquainted with that port and the conditions there.
