    I don't know if you could describe this as a disaster or a right royal prangup!

            This one has passed through e-mails already all across the world numerous times:

            Yacht mishap occurred on 7 March 2007 at Port Jebel Ali (a man-made harbor in the Gulf of Arabia outside Dubai, UAE). When the pictured $1.5 million Carver 55' Marquis Motor Yacht was being lifted aboard a cargo ship by slings for transport to the U.S., it slipped out of the forward sling, plunged bow-first into the water, and capsized, with the friction from the rear sling tearing off the yacht's propellers, shafts, struts, and drive train.

                    Oh dear, the weekend pleasure sailors strike again. But like you say Jan-Olav, just what were they thinking! That must have been a first timer at the tiller, why turn to port?, no way they were going to make a turn that quick, if they had gone to starboard at least they would have just bounced along the side of the ship.
                    My old skipper always called people like this 'WAFI's, the first letter stands for 'wind', the second stands for 'assisted', the last stands for 'idiots'. I'm sure you can work the rest out.

                      If you look very closely at 1 minute 20 seconds, there is somebody in the bridge window on starboard side.

                      You are right though, this is not fun at all for those involved and in many cases, they are a result of overworked crew and low manning.
