Interesting Video of Catamaran Rescue.

This is an interesting video of using inflatable flotation bags to provide buoyancy for a catamaran that ran aground in the Seychelles and breached a hull.

A good idea using those flotation bags! The vessel was probably not about to sink, but those bags would limit the amount of water that gets in.

The whole docking scene, (without fenders between the boat and dock???) was quite entertaining, as long as it's not your boat
