MSC Monterey has severe crack in hull

The MSC Monterey, which was named in 2007,  experienced a crack in the main deck,
which then spread to the outer hull. The article says it was named in 2007, but built in
2008, so I don't really know how old it is, but it's not THAT old.

The vessel was built in Romania.  It is now south of Newfoundland, and plans are
to make temporary repairs and go to Boston.

If I were a ship operator, would certainly start checking the steel integrity of any ship built in Romania.
