    It probably is going to be negligence in one form or the other. But that particular ship had a 28 foot draught, and obstacles that far under water can't be seen, so the crew is not expected to be able to see them. Even if they did, the ship couldn't be turned or stopped in time. Safety is maintained by knowing exactly where your ship is at all times relative to known obstacles. That's a little trickier than it sounds, but that's the standard.

    reminds me of the Oceanos disaster because the CO and crew took off in the boats and left the passengers to fend for themselves
