    Run Fox,, Run..

    I did notice a few things;

    The anchor is awash is a close second splash from the bow.
    Anybody expect that?

    2/3s from the bow, a heck of an exhaust escape/splash.
    Must make some noise on the hull sides??

    Yes I noticed it as well and found it odd. Is it the strike plate that is causing the secondary disturbance?

    Submarine exhaust... not uncommon.

    Extra splashing has to be making some noise up forward.
    Also, Big exhaust bubbles have to be making more noise further back.

    It appears that there has been a fire (not again..) on one of her tenders. Am I allowed to post links to Instagram here?

    Here is the small image from Instagram user "Tobba007". It appears to be "Flying Fox's" limosine tender that had a fire... it is a good thing that it happened when the tender was outside the yacht.

    Wow jeez!! Thank God no one is hurt! Also, it's good to know that there is no damage on the yacht. The tinder should be easily replaceable.

    Her name plates are uncovered now... I have seen a photo with the back-lit portside and stern plates visible.

    It is a term named after psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud which usually refers to an unintentional revelation of something that might have been in your deep subconscious mind that you never intended to come out in reality. Anyhow, back to FLYING FOX related content.

    According to a DrDuu's comment on Instagram the burnt tender's name is 'Limo Fox'. If that's the case I think she was one of 6711's tenders.

    Despite looking like a Vikal I think she was made by Compass Tenders.

    Thats some bad luck right after taking delivery, lucky the fire didnt happen when the tender was resting in the tender bay.

    "Flying Fox" has left the Norwegian area and is now in the Med area proper. Photos indicate she was recently in Malta and according to Marine Traffic she is heading La Ciotat, France.
