The ship had been hit with a crosswind, which they say caused the grounding.

The ship looks seriously overloaded to me. Lots of windage.

I believe that these ships can jettison their shipping containers while at sea, which is done to allow the ship to survive severe storms.

If so, they should just dump a good part of that load overboard, refloat the ship and clear the canal.

Clearing the jettisoned containers should not be difficult with tug boats.

Evergreen is Hillary's Secret Service codename.
 Quoting: Freefreakshow


Evergreen freight company has existed since almost forever.

I have sen these containers everywhere in all parts of the world.

Wiki

The company was founded 1 September 1968 by Yung-Fa Chang. Services began with a single cargo vessel named Central Trust, which operated a "go-anywhere" service.[7] A second vessel was added in 1969, and used on Middle East services.[7]

I located the ship on the Marine Traffic. She is really stuck in the middle further down the Canal. There's lots of tugs there to the rescue.

Going to take some time getting her out of there.

There is a maximum amount of rudder steering possible at any given speed. Obviously, they move slowly through canals.

Easy to imagine a cross wind hitting that enormous pile of shipping containers and creating a sideways force vector that the steering force can't handle. Also, the rudders are at the back of the ship and the wind force is all along with sides.

I had a boat with a lot of freeboard and canvas. Docking in a crosswind was impossible, unless you came in pretty fast to maintain strong rudder control. Then you prayed the reverse gear worked and the engine did not stall.

A powerful tug boat at the bow might have a chance to overcome the windage, but even still there is a limit.

I would shove about a third of those containers over the side and see if it doesn't float free.

By the way, if someone wanted to block the canal, they wouldn't use their own ship. They would blow up someone else's ship in the canal. And they would blow some big holes below the waterline to prevent rapid recovery of the vessel.

That will certainly push the ship into the bank unless you have one heck of a towboat pushing on the bow. .

Suez canal: race to free 'beached whale' container ship enters third day

Head of dredging company says Ever Given is stuck on the sand and containers may have to be unloaded, a process that could take weeks

The mission to unblock the Suez canal after a vast container ship became wedged has entered its third day, as pressure builds on authorities to get one of the world’s key trade arteries flowing again.

Efforts to refloat the 220,000-ton, 400-metre-long Ever Given resumed on Thursday after a brief overnight suspension, amid fears the operation could potentially take weeks if the vessel needs to be unloaded.

The Suez Canal Authority (SCA) said on Thursday it had suspended traffic temporarily while eight tugs worked to free it. Thirteen ships had sailed south along the canal on Wednesday and are waiting in lakes until the Ever Given is released.

Big ship getting stuck in a too-narrow waterway has spawned invocations of poetry, the pandemic and Austin Powers

It is the David and Goliath story of our times: one of biggest container ships in the world got stuck in the Suez canal, blocking a route through which 12% of the world’s trade passes – and sent to rescue it was a very small bulldozer.

Online, the slow-moving crisis was quickly turned into a learning experience: memes 101. The overarching theme was futility: of work in the face of a never-ending number of things to do; of $1,400 stimulus checks in response to the coronavirus pandemic; of drinking in the face of “the incessant, crushing weight of existence”.

Giant ship blocking Suez canal partially refloated

Tugboats work to free 400-metre ‘megaship’ Ever Given as vessels gather at either end of key waterway

...
Eight tugboats were working to free the vessel, blocking a lane key to Asia-Europe trade through which about 50 ships a day passed in 2019, according to Egyptian government statistics.

GAC, a Dubai-based marine services company, said the Ever Given had been partially refloated and moved alongside the canal bank, citing information from the SCA.

“Convoys and traffic are expected to resume as soon as the vessel is towed to another position,” GAC said on its website.
