Subject: RE: BS: Costa Concordia Sinking-2012
I was under the impression that the vessel was not under control, since all control systems were down, because the electrical power was down. Perhaps I err.

I also don't quite see the wisdom of the decision to abandon ship rather than at least to wait until daylight. It seems that although listing the ship was firmly aground so not going to sink any further, and there were many areas above water.
