    Hey all, I read that the brand new delivered "Steel" by Pendennis was involved in a crash with another vessel in St. Barths. Apparently the other vessel is the Palmer Johnson "Axia" that crashed into Steel causing some damage.

    Poor Steel was just minding it's own buisness at anchor when the sail boat T boned the crap out of them..in the aft 1/4. The wild thing is Steel has all the noticable damage. The sail boat definetely has some battle scars but not like Steel does.. Looked like a big cannon ball struck them..

    Hi,

    How can any boat have the right of way versus an anchored boat- Is that a special West Coast rule or what?

    I didn't know Aluminum and 'Steel' were magnetically attracted to one another.

    As to the Rules of the Road:-

    Rule No #1. Avoid the Big Steel Ice-Class Boat.

    It's always been a mantra of mine. You may dent one but subsequent meeting may be a lot more messy.

    OUCH!!!

    Kind of hard to tell from the perspective of the camera but it looks as though the slings (although maybe too close together) were being lowered at the same rate. Again, it's hard to tell but it looks like the stern caught on the freighter on the way down and caused it to become unbalanced.

    Is that how others are seeing it?

    It is hard to watch, kind of like the Trumpy demolition a few days ago. :(

    Just a guess.. But I think someone just learned the rule about securing a sling's position before moving an object.
