We Crashed A Luxury Super Yacht (Captain's Vlog ninety five)
It was a unhappy ending to a great working day on the drinking water. We arrived into Porto Rotondo (Sardinia), all the things was heading according to prepare, 50 % way via the docking course of action two of our fenders acquired caught on the groundling to the vessel on our starboard aspect building big rigidity on the strains resulting in the two vessels to collide. The harm to the two yachts was only superficial and very repairable. The noise and commotion was even worse than the genuine harm brought on, in particular immediately after some mild polishing. In the winter we will want to tent the weakened space, sand, filler, prima, vase coat and very clear coats.
We acquired very lucking that all people was okay since the strains arrived very near to snapping resulting in a possible snap back and significantly injuring a member of crew.
Be sure to note that the genuine collision was not caught on digicam as I was filming on the port aspect bridge wing with the go professional and the incident took place on the starboard aspect.
I give a whole debrief of specifically what took place and what we all learnt from this.
As a lot of you know, we expended seven months in excess of the winter 2018/19 respraying a refiting the yacht, so you can visualize how we all experience observing this harm.
The operator of the super yacht has been very supportive and we continue on as usual, frequently bettering ourselves.
Delight in the Video.
