Re: Whale lands on vessel

A whale thrusted from the waters off the coast of Australia over the weekend and came crashing down on top of a small fishing boat, critically injuring an 18-year-old man and his 39-year-old stepfather.

Nick Myhill suffered severe head and neck injuries [he’s in a coma] in the freak incident Sunday in the Tasman Sea, off Narooma, on the southern coast of New South Wales, according to reports.

"Reporter" could talk a bit slower so you can understand him!

Yes, big news here in Oz. Very rare considering the number of humpbacks we see each year.

Re: Whale lands on vessel

Another tragedy involving an animal just being itself around human beings. I doubt the "white whale" hypothesis. Just a whale being a whale. They leap, they land, and this time someone gets hurt.

Re: Whale lands on vessel

Is the whale all right? Clearly a tragedy for the people, but I'm sure landing on a boat does the whale no good as well.

Not a 'right' whale, but a 'humpback'.

Re: Whale lands on vessel

Whales go through childhood and adolescent phases just like we do.


I suspect there's a pretty good chance that this was some form of "Hey Moby, I *dare* you to jump over that boat! You scared bud? Chicken?" "Nah bro, I can absolutely clear that, hold my krill and watch this!"

Re: Whale lands on vessel

And now begins the parade of land-lubber newb's to over discuss 'Whale Deterant' systems and 'whale deflection tactics'. (I need a blue water boat, with forward looking sonar and crash bulkheads for containers, and a sky shield for whales, and possibly a second (get home) engine. It needs to be 90 feet, because we like to cruise around the world with a lot of family and friends)
