#7582: 75 miles?

No, somehow I doubt it.

The salient passage:
By 7:40 a.m. local time, the megaship--loaded with containers that would stretch more than 120 kilometers (75 miles) end to end and carrying everything from frozen fish to furniture--was stuck. Its grounding would not only lay bare the intricacies of navigating a man-made trench of water in a vessel the size of the Eiffel Tower, but also the fragility of a global network of markets and economies that takes for granted the flow of goods through it.
The ship is a hundred and twenty kilometers long? Or are the containers that big?

Hey, but it passed spell check!
