    Da da do da...


    I have a couple of Cat customers I can view real telemetry from and down load past history. These are special web logon accounts and my most sacred customers/friends.

    I know of no public telemetry options out there.
    I can not believe only one video or open witness exist on this.

    Not the boat show, the Yacht Show. Saw the damage, talked to a neighboring skipper who wasn’t there at the time, but said he was told that the operator of the at fault boat walked off the dock as soon as it was tied up. No meeting w/ the damaged boat crews.

    Yes, because if you immediately walk away the event never occurred. There is no spoon. There is no damage. The power of denial.

    I hear ya, was on a seatrial as buyer in Palm Bch, owner missed a marker and grounded the boat at cruise speed on a shallow bar on the ICW headed back to his dock. Snatched the props and shafts right out of the boat and folded the rudders horizontal. Later he said didn't know how that happened because he had shaft savers put on the couplings! lol Wife chewed us all out for not watching out for him when she picked us up us at the marina after being towed. No, they did not reimburse me for the survey cost, it was our fault! What a day!

    Pretty significant; several bow rails pulled completely off, much fiberglass damage. Couldn't see all of it as the boats were attempting to cover much of it, after all, they were in the show to be sold. Besides, it started to rain, so lookie-loos like me weren't getting aboard.

    Wish we had a ships name and AIS track.
    Oh well, show is over and nobody got hurt.
    Another fun thread.
