A guy? Judging by the evidence "he" is either a she, drunk or both.

Re: A bad day at the marina

I don't know if the crunching is the prop chopping things up or what. It's a helluva Vegomatic!

Re: A bad day at the marina

Observations:
1 A good deepwater marina.....ships prop did not churn up any mud.
2 Tugs wake shows that he was full(?) ahead, shoving Cyprus Cement into marina.
3 Cyprus Cement was full(?) ahead, showing he knew what was happening.
4 Maybe lack of or misunderstood comms between tug and ship.
5 Crunching was docks and boats hitting each other, maybe some prop hits.
6 Truly a sh***y in the marina!

FWIW, the original video seems to have been removed - but gcaptain still has it.
