    lets just say - somebody got very lucky holding his cell right on the yacht in the right moment - i think that's what's photography all about isn't it?

    Ah, thanks. I checked the Moto site for Canada and couldn't find an "x" model so I'm guessing it's not available here yet.

    We eclipsed yesterday's "most users online" record. This morning, prior to YF's server crying uncle and crashing, we had 2753 people online. Might have been higher, but it took 30 minutes to reconfigure the server to handle the volume.

    In 24 hours, this thread has received over 20,000 views! And we still have over 1200 people looking at it!

    I think many hearty thanks surely must be in order for the gent that snapped these pics. They have undoubtedly brought many newbies to the forum to have a look at the photos.

    Carl, I wonder if it might be interesting to see how many new members sign up for the forum in the one week period following the original post, and then compare to how it stacks up historically in terms of other weeks of high activity. My thought here is that perhaps, if a record is broken, there might be a reward for the photographer and original poster in terms of some YF gear or something of the like?

    Just my two cents:p

    It's not the people signing up that are the significant numbers... it's the silently lurking guests. ;)

    Wow, really hurts to see such a picture. Is it possible to get the high-res version somewhere (alternatively: ogeg2000de[at]gmx.de)? I read the whole thread, but didn't find a reference to the high-res pics.

    Ensuing suing!

    I heard about this one last week in MC, it has evolved into a classic tale of woe with many questions and answers needed to resolve what I suspect is an insurance write off with non-qualified crew and poor equipment used meaning a distinct possibility of non payout and ensuing law suit. In my experience it pays to keep it simple, leave the experts to handle these unloads and use only the Best known independent arrangers, paying a little more for better service ensures no headaches! My thoughts are with the company that arranged this, its going to be an expensive summer for them!

    How Unfortunate

    :eek: This really is an unfortunate accident and I feel for those two guys on the aft deck - how terrifying! Glad they survived it with only minor injuries.

    The only splash we hear is of our divers going in the water to secure the supports...;)

    This thread is generating some impressive numbers. Today (4 days later)...

    Should crack 50,000 views by the end of the day!

    I've moved boats that were just delivered off ships, and most times there is no place to tie up a pleasure boat near by....plenty of places with cement and steel bulkheads with tire fenders but nothing you would lay a new boat like this against. So you usually dont need lines or fenders untill your away from the ship.

    Hey now! I don't believe that Dockwise has ever dropped anyone else's boat though! Doesn't count if your own gets a little low! :D

    The Mighty Servant 3 has been resurrected and will be back in service in no time. By the way, she is a heavy lift ship, not a yacht carrier.
