Today, the New York Time, with more data, has located the collision below the island, not above it--
at the so-called "correction" on the original map


The Path of the Container Ship That Struck a U.S. Navy Destroyer

Records show the ship turned sharply to the right around that time. The route of the destroyer is not shown on these maps because commercial tracking data doesn't include military ships, but damage to its starboard side indicates that it would have been bearing south at the time of the collision.

The Times has the same tracking path in its article initially reported 2 days prior by this blog--

Recon Presse USA was the first to report the collision location utilizing tracking information from a maritime tracking website..
