Ben grounded

Recommended Posts

its really fucking windy and its a big high fucking boat, shit happens. what is it some folks think will be any different with another shipping company?

2 boats hit the pier in less than a year, come on now, have you heard of it happening any where else on the British isles or ireland?

The above two posters Dilli don't know what they are talking about so it isn't an ideal starting point.

 

Here's captain bird's-eye, wise up! If an aircraft comes in to land in a cross wind and finds it dangerous, what does the pilot do?

What is the feature on the KEVIII pier which rips the Ben's deck railing off? It looks like a sticking out roadway on the videos. Hopefully high level damage is easier to repair than anything near the water-line.

Was that fuel or ballast/hydrant water gushing over the deck?

I don't think our harbour suits high sided boats docking in the wind, it seems an awkward maneuver at the best of times?

We have had collisions occur for years before the internet, we'd have all had to rush down to the Dog's Home to moan about it in those days though.

 

Looking at those videos I can see why we have never had clear footage of a UFO or Big Foot.

These incidents have the potential to cause serious injury, especially IF you have older people up and about heading to crowded stairwells queing for car decks etc. Luckily this one didn't produce a sudden stop.

Crashing a plame and a boat catching the side are not really good comparable?

 

And you don't hear much about this sort of thing elsewhere because we don't give a fuck about a ferry in Dover clipping something and it won't make national news. Like this won't.

Didn't a boat (lady of Mann?) imprint the 3 legs into the pier at one point?

I've just Googled ferry indicents for several different years. You only see news items where people are injured.

 

These sort of minor incidents probably happen quite regularly all around the world. It's no big deal.

Notwell will tell you different I'm sure! My point is that, there could have been a disaster tonite, thankfully there wasn't, that berthing should have been aborted if you ask me
