The M. Star, a Japanese oil tanker, suffered ... something in the early-morning hours Wednesday as it passed through the Strait of Hormuz. Crew members heard a blast and saw a flash, windows were blasted out, ceiling panels in a dining room were shaken loose, and one crew member suffered minor injuries. And most significant, an enormous dent appeared on the tanker's starboard side, extending from the waterline more than halfway up the hull. But what caused it? the New York Times asks. Who knows?

I defer to your post as the true winner. My initial thought of plasma rifle in the 30 megawatt range is a bit off.
Nothing beats chuck norris, but actually chuck pushed the whole ship to port EXCEPT for the divot on the port side
