What caused a massive cargo ship to get stuck in Chesapeake Bay? Still a mystery

March 17, 2022

A salvage team and naval architects are working together to figure out how to free a cargo ship stuck in Chesapeake Bay. The Ever Forward was headed from the Port of Baltimore to Norfolk, Virginia, when it ran aground Sunday night, the U.S. Coast Guard said. The ship is not blocking any navigation, unlike its sister vessel, the Ever Given, which got stuck and blocked traffic for days in the Suez Canal nearly a year ago. The Ever Forward went aground outside the main navigation corridor, the Craighill Channel.
