Apparently the cause is parametric roll. Excellent informative thread on ybw scuttlebutt about it.

It's a problem becoming more prevalent due to ship design.

This one presumably? https://forums.ybw.com/index.php?threads/container...

The number of lost containers annually, if without this event, is something I find fairly amazing.

Obviously some will fairly be fair harmless, and just sink to the bottom with non-toxic replaceable cargo.
However a lot will contain plastics, foam, or worse pollutants. And I understand a lot remain as floating 'iceburgs' for years.

Nasty to hit one in a small-med size boat.

A few bloopers* in the commentary, but worth a watch (y)

Wouldn't want to do that in a breeze. Azimuth thrusters be working hard no doubt.

I like those 3 berth river cruisers.

Looking at the water there was no wind, probably no coincidence.

Since they have a new facility in the port of Amsterdam, I wonder if Feadship will continue to build ships of this size inland. The A'dam facility is just 1 lock away from the North Sea.
