04:07 EDT Navigation status changed constrained by draught

 

10. (Nautical Terms) the depth of a loaded vessel in the water, taken from the level of the waterline to the lowest point of the hull

 

 

I'm not sure what you are getting at. This happens all the time a ship decides that the water isn't deep enough, so it's path changes, there are multiple reasons that it can happen. just a few:

 

Ship early or late so tide wrong

 

Silt build up on bed

 

Tide not as high as predicted

 

These are probably the main ones.

Or........ "the term vessel constrained by her draught means “a power-driven vessel which, because of her draught in relation to the available depth and width of navigable water, is severely restricted in her ability to deviate from the course she is following.”
