Re: "Superyacht in trouble off Port Macquarie, Australia

wish we could find out what the source of the leak was. Leaking exhaust hose maybe?

Just goes to show murphy can implement his laws on anyone.

Unless the engineer was the owner, he's now unemployed.! 🤔

Re: "Superyacht in trouble off Port Macquarie, Australia

One wonders about HOW were the two crew injured? Was their injury related to the boat's difficulties, and if so, in what way(s)?

Curiouser and curiouser.

I have to think that they were not necessary and probably wanted off anyway

Re: "Superyacht in trouble off Port Macquarie, Australia

Too bad people got injured. Sadly, term super-yacht doesn't really ensure its gonna be a good boat. When Iam running into some pages as this one, I sometimes wonder how some are able to even float.
