      Well, that's one way of getting alongside!
      See, even without their sails up 'Wafi's are a nightmare!

                  This article was in the local paper here in Ålesund today. Unfortunately it is in norwegian, but i can try to translate some of the text:

                  A large cabincruiser, about 40 feet, stranded at Hessa, just outside Ålesund yesterday morning. The owners was contacted, and they came and removed some things from the boat, but they did not try to save the boat.
                  Today the strong wind and the waves had completely destroyed the boat.

                      And nobody asked how the boat ended up high and dry in the first place?
                      It is compulsory to report accidents and incidents at sea, at least for commercial vessels. No such thing here apparently.

                      The rumor mill must be working overtime in Aalesund and Heroy at the moment, I should think.

                          Aiaiaiai... that looks expensive... looks like the green one has rammed into the stern of the big black container ship, punctured her hull at the stern and caused severe flooding...

                            Oh dear, MSC do not have much luck with their container ships, first the Napoli, now the Nakita.

                                I wonder how this is possible at all? Maybe someone should stop filming and stop their ship?
