Such poor dinghy dock etiquette, should not have raised his outboard propeller from the water.

Re: $@%*ing newbies hogging the dinghy dock!

Computer malfunction. Again. Where is that thread where we were talking about using electronic control systems?

Re: $@%*ing newbies hogging the dinghy dock!

Thrusters were stuck in gear and captain elected to do this because it would cause the least amount of damage, yet stop the boat. No one was injured - only property/boat damage - which is fixable.

Owner has already apologized and promised to pay restitution.

Lamentable, but sometimes as a Captain, these are the types of decisions you have to make...

Computer malfunction from what I have read. Now I will say the teal is a wrap on that yacht, which was just repaired 6 months ago after another episode of damage.

On the good side (think positive!) lot of folks will get shiny new dinghies and outboards courtesy of motoryacht Go :-)
