Would love to see the Captain's Report, and the insurance claim! 😉

Nope, more of a RIRI 😁

On the lake here in Munich I once saw a Powerboat at speed collide with a beautifully built tug. About 3m offshore, right under my nose!
Was very glad my destroyer was in dry-dock on the table at the time😉
The speedboat survived but the tug just exploded in a shower of bits & pieces 😭 A 'heated discussion' ensued!😡
I gave my name and address as witness but never heard anything so I assume they 'settled Out of Court'!
How did this 'er incident happen?
Cheers Doug 😎

Aha! A forum in my neck of the woods, thanks for the tip.👍
Seems the owner of the speedboat was praising the strength of his boat's hull, from the manufacturer MHZ.
"Der oben genannte MHZ (Modellbau Hobby Zavarsky) hat wirklich gute Rümpfe! Mein rotes Schiff hat ein wenig graue Farbe abbekommen, sonst nix... "
'The above mentioned MHZ has really good hulls! My red boat only got a little grey paint, other than that, nowt ...'
Following comment was-
Ships coming from starboard have right of way, doesn't look good for you!'
😎

Hopefully a lesson was learned.Fast electrics stay away from slower moving vessels.Always keep your eyes ahead of your boat so these accidents don't happen.

Whom!
Clear case! Ship coming from starboard has right of way.
Only exception; Sail Before Steam!
