Ferry Collision Update

Damage to the passenger ferry BLOCK ISLAND can be seen in this picture. That looks like a pretty good whack.

Plus, I found this detail over at Coast Guard News:

The commanding officer of the Morro Bay, Lt. Douglas Wyatt, took command of the Morro Bay in a change of command ceremony in Newport, R.I., Tuesday. The Morro Bay was headed back to its homeport in New London, Conn., following the ceremony when the collision occurred.

....thats gotta be the shortest command duty in history, don't you think?
