Gee, I hope they had more than 20 feet of water there, or that dive was going to come to a very sudden stop.

I have never seen a test like that before. What on earth are they trying to achieve??? I have seen boats dumped upside down for righting time, but never on the bow like that.

The boat was in slings, hoisted from cargo ship in the middle east, then something broke.

Actually 2 guys aboard.
The photographer hit the button at the right moment.

What... I suppose you guys have never done this???

Looks like the bow thruster the yard installed was a bit over-powered for the boat eh?

Actually that's the way they dispose of the old boats and unwanted company here in the Middle East. The holding tank must have been full and it was time to get a new boat.

Nope, sorry not from me. I believe it happened in the middle east. I picked that up from another forum.
