It actually crashed into OUR dock? Or was it like that before it came here?


#5

Doesnt that explain it all?


#6

Yup, they say it chipped off a chunk of the concrete.

I’ve seen tons of boats come into the harbour with a chunk taken out of the bow. Could have happened before it got here. Hoshq could have been making a funny.

As you can see from the picture, they’re fixing it, because it just happened…

Ships usually have pretty good insurance, however, it all depends where the ship is registered. Interesting fact: Ships are the only non-human things that can be arrested. I was doing some work on a ship once and it was arrested, basically meaning that it couldn’t be moved from the location it was anchored at.

dude, didnt a cruise ship hit up on the rocks not too long ago around here?? 150 people on it or something and they had to take them all off…


#11

Yep that happened just last week… a little ways out of the harbour. I’m trying to find the news clip of it, but not having any luck. It was in the paper on monday or so I think.
