Salt in the Wound

many will remember this yacht sinking in the brsibane floods a year ago.

Yacht Sinks

Seems the authorities have found the wreckage on the river floor and have directed the owner to remove it.

Re: Salt in the wound

I don't remember seeing that video before... spectacular footage... I had to watch three times, which I have NEVER done before for these links. Do you have a reference or link for your information, please Factor? I would be interested to read more about this.

I wonder if the 3rd party insurance would cover that

Re: Salt in the wound

I haven't seen any links to the finding/removal orders but if so it is so stupid. The scale of what happened and the questions being raised in the enquiry into the flood begs the question of what the authorities are trying to achieve. Is it the same authority who may well have had their precious bridge saved from damage by a 300 meter concrete walk way by a boat. Or maybe the same authority that has had their evidence to the inquiry questioned as being misleading and inconsistent. A link that may interest you. http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/floods/8195993/brisbane-wakes-up-to-water-logged-streets

Normal i think that Factor is a, how do i say this, a little out there but on this issue he is right on the money. The boat and owner were victims of the situation if he is now to be targeted that is definitely salt in the wounds.

Saucy,

Ozskipper started a thread on the Brisbane floods back in January, 2011. Quite a lot of videos of the carnage. Post 13 is a vid of the sinking boat in question.

Re: Salt in the wound

Unless he did not have insurance, the insurance company owns it. The authorities may be making a request of the wrong person.

Re: Salt in the wound

in Qld now, boats over 15m have to have an insurance policy to cover the possible environmental damage they may cause. Not sure this boat was over 15m though.

Re: Salt in the wound

I agree, but in this case it could maybe save this guy a lot of money.

Re: Salt in the wound

Talbot, in the States wreck removal and environmental damages are each separate line items in coverage, not always provided unless the policy lists them. That may vary by the insurer and of course, things may be different down in Oz.

Here in the States if it took a year to find the wreck, someone would no doubt bring an environmental impact suit preventing you from removing it, in case any rare sea critters had started nesting in the debris.

One of the many in the assembled tomes of Maritime Law in Qld. Some outrageous pieces of legislation have been perpetrated by the Goss/Beattie/Bligh governments
