Trinity MI SUEÑO supposedly went out on her own power and then was towed in a short whiles later. Picture taken in Palm Beach from the sail fish club.

Yachts are such delicate pieces of equipment. At any minute at any time any thing can blow up, fall apart, come un done, causing you to be totally f***ed out there needing some help.
I left the FTL boat show once unknowing that the sea strainers sucked up the trash from the event (drinking straws, cig butts, paper cups,etc) and I did not know that the sea strainers where not installed properly letting the trash by passing the baskets, it was a bad day with alarms sounding and engines shutting down...

Engines failing

Lets hope there were no automatic shut downs on those propulsion engines.

ABS requirement of automatic shut down in required events, and they are programed right into the ECM for the engine. Although there is an over ride switch.

Override switch

Critical , specially for collision avoidance... I believe Transport Canada does not allow for auto shutdown on passenger vessels.

I am not sure which classification society the Canadians use, if not ABS. But I know ABS will want to test and verify the auto shut down or they will drop your classification.
Keep in mind, all the modern main propulsion engines I have scene on yachts do have the over ride shut down feature for such emergencies. Hopefully the engineers know how to use it and where it is located.

cLASSIFICATION

Transport Canada has it's own construction requirements for passenger vessels but I believe will recognize certain other classifications such as Lyods and the French classification Bureau Veritas Marine with local modifications, they also have relief for "small passenger vessel " construction.

Canada is just like any other country in that it will accept a certificate from any IACS member. They may or may not allow all or any member to conduct certain surveys on behalf of Transport Canada.

As far as shutdowns go, it depends on the nature of the problem and the level of automation approved on the class certificate. Some engine problems, such as overspeed, require immediate shutdown to avoid much larger problems and risks that are greater than loss of propulsion, others cause a slow down to allow the engineer and mate to decide what to do.

Other problems can be handled by providing an alarm for a certain length of time before a slowdown or shutdown, 60 seconds is common. If the engine room is manned, the automatic functions can be much more limited. In the case of a manned engine room there are multiple alarms before the propulsion system self destructs. That is as it should be as the engineer can inform the bridge of the imminent loss of power and both officers can determine the best course of action - operate at reduced power, destroy the engine or destroy the waterfront shopping center full of tourists.

Looks like Mi Sueno is being towed by the Rybovich towboat.
Dockboy, help me with my bearings. Which direction are you facing when this photo was taken? Maybe Mi Sueno was being towed through the narrow channels towards the inlet? If this was taken in front of Sailfish Marina, then she may have required the tow as the channel is not wide and the current can rip through there. Or she had a problem.
