Worst Med Mooring Ever - Just when you think you've seen everything!!

I had to painfully watch this several times. Unbelievable.

Was it recent? I just saw it posted on the Med Facebook group. I'd love to see the next one hour of what transpires.

Holy Cow! Did ya notice the propwash at one point whilst fouled with the boat on the left? Nothing like full speed ahead while entangled with another boat.

The pilot abandoned the wheel at one point, watch it spinning free. lol.
I agree, it would be interesting to see what happens after.
Here is one done correctly.

When in doubt, do nothing! Someone needs to tell the guy this.

How many boats can someone damage at one time? Wow.

There must be style points there for escaping from between two boats and collecting the anchor chain from the next boat but one before coming back...

Was he crashing on purpose?

Some of that almost looked intentional, maybe major drugs or a medical issue?

Also screaming guy, yeahhh that doesn’t help lol

Glad no one got hurt, that last hit on the cat, I thought one of those girls was going to get KOed by the ramp

Have no ideal what else was going on aboard to comment. Maybe the captan was injured forcing a crew member to dock. Would need to know more.

That was pretty ugly, but let's face it, Med mooring is the Devil's invention. How many North American sailors inexperienced in the process would care to try it with 20 knots at an angle to the bow?
