Looks like it might be a minor thing....given what it is. Here is hoping! The pictures look cosmetic for damage though.

lol because the bridge is so hard to miss. The driver must be drunk.

You obviously have no idea what kind of seamanship it takes to drive these things.....
The rub is very minor...almost as good as a miss......

Is 'drive' an official nautical term? Haha. Sorry, had to ask.

Hoping everything is OK.

Yes, Drive is the correct term, I was a ship driver... aka Helmsman and Navigator. Just to answer your question


and I've steered many ships under that bridge, Aircraft Carriers, heading to Alameda Naval station so yes if not paying good attention, it isn't hard to miss, had a close one once at night. missed it be 50 feet.

Hope all is well too.
