Is it photoshopped?

Actually they talk about "constructive total loss". Around $500 million damages. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costa_Concordia_disaster
I understand certain parts of the dynamic of this accident. But do you find it believable that there can be rocks not marked on the map in that location? And if not, why the Master lied about it, if he behaved correctly and professionally otherwise?
Earlier Saturday Francesco Schettino, captain of the Costa Concordia, had told Italian television that the vessel had hit a rocky spur while cruising in waters which, according to the charts, should have been safe.
"As we were navigating at cruise speed, we hit a rocky spur," he told Tgcom24 television station:
"According to the nautical chart, there should have been sufficient water underneath us," he added. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldne ... ssing.html

AL GIORNALE RADIO LA TESTIMONIANZIA DI UNO DEI PASSEGGERI
Costa 'Concordia' in avaria all'Isola del Giglio. Passeggeri evacuati sulle scialuppe
La nave della Costa Crociere era salpata da Civitavecchia ed era diretta a Savona, con a bordo circa 4.200 passeggeri. Ha avuto un problema all’impianto elettrico che ha costretto l’equipaggio a trasferire tutti gli occupanti sulle scialuppe di salvataggio con direzione la vicina isola del Giglio. (...) A dare la notizia è stato un passeggero con una telefonata all’agenzia Ansa.

However, in a distance 7-8 nautical miles from the Channel between the island and the mainland of Italy, the ship made a course alteration, up to 20 degrees by altering the course to 20 degrees to port side,, This course alteration has no sense, because it obviously made the vessel heading to the Giglio Island. Lets make an estimate: The ships bridge wanted to give a close berth to the Island.. There is no othher explanation. We cannot talk about a rudder failure since ship seems steering good. Made a good course change.
