Someone not having a good Bastille Day,
off the beach in St. Tropez.
How not to put a reef in.
J105. Scroll the article for a picture after the boats were separated
French made race boats are pretty lightly built.
This happened in my boating area!
Any better details?
No updates Ralph but the Coast Guard is still investigating. The power boat is a 37' charter fishing vessel owned by Chesapeake Bay Charter. I have a funny feeling everyone on the power boat were watching trolling lines and looking at over the stern not realizing they were on a collision course with the sailboat which was under sail at the time of the accident.
I don't think that boat could crawl all the way up onto the sailboat at trolling speed.......
I heard 2 rumors on the Eastern Shore over the past couple days.
1. is the power boat was only a few days old
2. Was the sail boat might have tacked unexpectedly into the powerboats path.
Rumors, not facts.
This was not a trolling speed accident. And even if the sailboat had tacked, the fishing boat was passing too close if he couldn’t avoid them.
WAFI vs USS MIDWAY
Another WAFI doing what they do best; challenging steel!!
In San Diego. Oh, and for the uninformed, MIDWAY is a museum ship!
Apparently not well versed in the Rules-of-Tonnage!
Seal Team Six.
Surprised nobody posted this one... 50' mutt over the jetty in Marthas vimeyard
Wouldn't want to be the Capt. running this Bayou Barge in tight situations. 2,000 HP OB's on hydraulic jack plates.
How not to pick up your tender.
Not really " Excellent"
Who forgot to turn them off?
Someone tell me alcohol wasn't involved.
Here’s a good one.
Avoid the large, brown non-movers. They tend to win.
