Na, it was a brand new passenger ferry doing sea trials. I think this one went to Scotland somewhere. The skipper lost his license for 6 months.

That was my initial thought as well, but when advertised - if indeed it is Koola 2, the ad said

Re: Cat on the rocks

Lovely people met them in Broome just before they set of to explore the Kimberley's area. One of the friendliest people so far we came across on the west coast. the area is mostly uncharted with very large tides we near that location we came across one spot that went from 30m + to 4m in 5 second no time to react lucky for us it was high tide. I hear all is ok only minor damage
I wish them all the best in future travels fare winds and following seas

Re: Cat on the rocks

With the 10m tides up there it can be quiet horrifying to watch the speed with which crags will suddenly rise up out of the water and the height they can achieve. I have seen a photo of a fin keeled mono hanging from the front of the keel bow down with it's deck almost vertical. The owner anchored and suddenly the stern started to rise and just kept going.


I don't think it's photo shopped, it's one of those places where those sorts of thing happen.

Re: Cat on the rocks

What benefit do you get from pleasing arm chair sailors by naming and therefore shaming anyone that may have an incident with their yacht? I haven't met too many actual sailors yet that haven't had mishaps. As a matter of fact I haven't seen to many sailors game enough to sail through the big tides of the Kimberley alone. So by all means talk about it but don't be so he'll bend on naming people publicly. Imagine it is you

Nah, not a matter of naming and shaming just the normal gossip which goes on on the forum.

Besides, who collected the image anyway and who gave it to the press, it may well have been the owner (I can't make out a dingy on a davit) You can get a good group of rapt, bar room, listeners with Kimberly's stories (am I screwing up in suggesting that the skipper may frequent bars and drink alcohol, shame on me) (I've single handed through there three time now)

Re: Cat on the rocks

When you are pushing to find out who s yacht it is, you are doing exactly that. And Names are being named.

Even if the owners are named, that does not equal shaming. You need to get off your high horse. Perhaps divulge any personal interests whilst your at it.

You're the only one who has said or implied they should be ashamed of what happened. As we have some friends sailing this area now (and who we now know met them a few weeks back in Broome), we were interested to know who's boat this was. It is also important for many of us to know how it happened so that we can hopefully avoid the same situation.

Re: Cat on the rocks

I don't see it that way, I never used those words so don't put them in my mouth. However
I see by the piss taking about the photo that it is very much implied on your behalf.

Are you worried about the effect this accident may have on Koola2 s' resale.

Condolencences.

Should make it worth more, clear demonstration that it is one tough boat.
