Did I hear that they broke a drive and still pulled that off? How long was the drive broken for?

i'm pretty sure the shipping channel is more then 17 feet , i'm sure the container ships that run to port of baltimore have more then a 17 foot draft , it's been a while since running to Red Eye , but i'm pretty sure at the middle of the bay bridge in the shipping lanes its super deep water

i stand corrected , in the shipping channel at the bay bridge is between 50 and 100 feet , and the channel maintains at least 50 feet all the way to port of baltimore , but i was wrong about 200 ft. , sometime i make stuff up in my head

Here are a few pics that my wife took. I still can't figure out how to get the movie off of the camera.
