    Cabo Flats Master

    Guys,

    Here is the new Cabo Flats Master. At least, it is supposedly a Cabo. Maybe someone knows the story here. This apparently happened last August.

    Looks as though mud and weeds are a decent medium for propellors to provide thrust in. Too bad they coudn't overcome the friction of the grass against the hull.
    Still, I think there is an easier way to transport your yacht overland.

    This looks like a classic case of panic on the part of the sailboat skipper. It would appear that if he had turned to Starboard that he would have probably been OK.

    Testiment to keeping your eyes open and having a cool head.

    It has been said that during docking manuevres the control lost (it is not clear yet whether it was due to mechanical/electronic poblem or bad handling) and a serious scissure occured.

    Oh, thats too bad. What a beautiful yacht.
    I wonder if the hull is ruptured.
    I would assume they'd get some slings around it and lift her up and off whatever she's hung up on.

    Oops

    This is what probably happens when you forget to put the bung in and your bildge pump stops working.

    July 8, 2008

    A cruise ship with 51 people on board ran aground and was stuck for about nine hours in Alaska.

    The ship was eventually towed to safety and a National Park Service vessel was transferring passengers and crew members to a nearby port before they were taken to Juneau, a US Coast Guard spokesman said.

    A spokesman for Cruise West, which owns the ship, said the company was trying to get passengers to the Juneau airport.

    Officials said the 63-metre Spirit of Glacier Bay grounded just after 7am (local time) today near Glacier Bay in Alaska.

    The ship had 51 people onboard. No injuries were reported.

    Coast Guard spokesman Lieutenant Eric Eggen said it was unclear whether the grounding was caused by human error or a mechanical or electronic malfunction.

    Another delivery that failed. Hit a rock in the middle of the night, sank in a minute and was lifted from 35 meters depth....
