    Not funny in the slightest, and reported in the DM's usual breathless, OTT and mostly inaccurate way - but holy ****! :eek:

    I'd assumed that the pontoon was wooden, but it was a concrete one.

    And this is what we want for Dun Laoghaire harbour? (well some do, I certainly don't!)

    Just waiting for this to happen to poolbeg marina with all the recent super liners.

    Some of them turn in alexandra with 10m to spare, tug drivers have to have nerves of steel and they really don't get paid enough for the skill they have for this job.

    Not sure that tugs were used in Messina, hence the problem. Its hard to tell, but it looks as if windage was an issue and the thrusters had to be powered up to compensate. I am totally against those slab-sided monsters coming into DL.

    :eek::eek::eek: In the first photo do you see the white shirt guy in the wing of the bridge (port side)! He probably has a joystick in his hands to control the whole operation. I know it's big and all that, but it sometimes is harder for me to hang over the stern and swing my outboard through 180 degrees to get reverse mode!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,632 ✭✭✭✭ neris


    you could see the lads sauntering across the bridge very clearly when standing underneath taking that photo. I think there was a tug though off the stern helping her pull the stern into the basin

    I'd say both of them were there for something that big.

    From 3.25 on.... who knew there were keelboats (or are they giant foiling moths? who knows???) that would take 9+ out on trapezes :eek:

    Great video, in fairness!

    ETA - aw crap, I've done it again! That link only brings you to the London Cornthian FB page....

    It's a video from 10th September, with the tagline "Because Sailing is boring; Saturday Thrills!"

    I give up!!

    they race them in Italy on the lakes. theres a few different classes. remeber seeing them years back on the telly and the bigger ones are scary looking yokes 12-15 guys on trapeezing off a rack. Big race they do is the Centomiglia on Lake Garda. They look like great fun boats but you,d be murdered on IRC with one here



    These are Asso 99s
