The ship is not a tanker - it's a dry bulk carrier loaded with soybeans. Or it was a week ago. The ship has broken in two but the front part remains salvageable. The article you got this from and which states otherwise is incorrect. The British Government has many faults but did nothing to cause this accident. The ship was very far off course and, rather obviously, had no competent person on watch. Nightingale Island has been accurately charted for hundreds of years. No evil British agents are believed to have lured the captain to ram his ship into the island.
