This satellite photo was taken four days after the capsizing of the cruise ship Costa Concordia on January 13 off the island of Giglio in Italy. To give you an idea of scale, the ship is 1000 ft long and 116 ft wide. I assume the white line visible between the ship and the coast is a containment boom placed to keep leaking fuel from washing up on shore and will probably surround the entire ship soon. Experts estimate it will take 7-10 months to remove the wreck. Local residents are concerned because tourism is a big deal on the island, but they’re getting a surge of people from mainland Italy coming over to see the wreck for themselves so perhaps it will equal out.
I also found this approximate representation of the ship and sea bottom.
