Re: Tasmanian Yacht runs aground

Saw something on this pass my desk at work today. Seems like they lost their prop & had some steering issues.

Boat was towed off later in the day. Came past my house about 4pm being towed at a rapid rate of knots (in a hurry to get hauled out?) and appeared to have some sort of emergency pump operating judging by the volume of water going over the side.

Was seriously blowing on the day and was well forecast - not sure why anyone would choose to be out in those conditions.

heavy, fat hulls cat with lots of windage and strong rig.

every dog has its day = every boat design has its day. This conditions are ideal for condomarans, until waves not too high.

Cat that does well in light winds will not do well in these conditions as thin hulls will be liability.

Ok, now I pissed cata squad too.

I would think he is referring to the new condo like and spacious week end live aboard at the dock catamaran that start at half a million and just go up.

Lost their prop AND steering problems. Well, that would explain a bit. Not sure how that would happen though.

The Prop shaft slips out of the coupling. The prop shaft moves back and blocks the rudder.

No rudder, no prop and water coming into the boat. Not good

A large hose clamp, or zinc placed in the right spot around the prop shaft can reduce the chance of this problem in some installations.

(Note only speculation I have no idea if this was the problem)

It may be only speculation, but it is good speculation.

This gives me an idea for later…will tell you more very soon.

If we could all be so lucky!

How many can say they had...

"Yacht thrown on the rocks of a lee shore by high winds. Survives with hull intact. Salvaged quickly." (Imagined statement, not from the article.)

Thanks for posting the link to the article.

Here is a photo from that news…

And now for a friendly and sincere question:

Does anyone think the outcome of the grounding/wreck would have been different if the boat was a recently built fiberglass (GRP) yacht instead of a steel hull?

Re: Tasmanian Yacht runs aground

Nice to see it recovered, nasty conditions! I'm surprised no one mentioned the two guys obviously molesting a sheep 7 seconds from the end of that vid. What the hell is going on down there in Tassie?!

. Not possible on my steel, but now you mention it I've seen many where that could happen.

I have not yet been to Australia or Tasmania, but I can imagine that the humor you have shown will be appreciated by those from there.

________________

Humor Amidst Tragedy

I know that in most cases there is a taboo against any humor associated with what may be a tragedy. But, as I see it, it is also something wonderful about the human spirit to see that even in the darkest moments of life there can be something that causes one to laugh. It is that humorous spirit that keeps people living, despite the hardships. Of course not everyone will feel that way, but it is how I look at it.

Here are a few quotes some might enjoy:

“There is a saying in Tibetan, 'Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.' No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that's our real disaster.”
― Dalai Lama XIV

“The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.”
― Horace Walpole
“Life is a comedy to those who think, a tragedy to those who feel.”
― Jean Racine

Have you ever seen the alien space sheep in the movie Life Of Brian?
