well they can't see the speeding boats coming in everyday or the illegal beach structures, so what do you expect.

Yes, when a floating object cracks, gets a hole in the hull, yes, than it starts sinking.
When you notice the start of this happening you have immediately take action to prevent sinking.
Sinking is not waiting for office paper work and budget requests.
Probably some vessels were mooring roughly and damaged the hull?

But I think they still not have a clue. Just staring from office window.
