I wonder if they , like the USCG would be overwhelmed in some areas of the US where the boating population is staggering at times.

Or something to do with their putty/coring.

""There may have been a possible grounding on the way out of Port Everglades and it wasnít noticed until they were further offshore,Ē said Sadowicz

Investigators are checking to see if a shaft that attaches from inside the boat to a stabilizer on the bottom may have fallen out."

My post regarding insurance coverage was not regarding the cost of the tow or salvage effort but with regards to reimbursement for the value of the vessel as a total loss. He may have endangered his coverage by not retaining Class.

Wrong on both counts! Her name is Gisele BŁndchen and she's a Brazilian fashion model wearing a Brazilian bikini.

Side note:

Since 2004, she has been the highest-paid model in the world, and as of 2007 was the 16th richest woman in the entertainment industry. Oh, and she's married to Tom Brady.

I doubt it. It's not uncommon for a boat to go out of class. It might up your premium but you would not lose your insurance.

Their big advantage is that they are not looking for the boogie man or harassing their citizens continuously like the USCG has been tasked to do since becoming part of homeland security.

Yeah. That would be a problem.

Greetings,
Having transited Port Everglades countless times I know it is well marked, well lit, deep and wide. One would have to be way off the channel to ding anything even on a 105' vessel.

Wouldn't be the first time.

But the first officer talks about possibly touching bottom leaving the Bahia Mar area.

Dramatic Rescue Off Lauderdale After Mega-Yacht Sinks ¬ę CBS Miami

The vessel in question draws 11' I believe. And it's 121' long from what I've read.

One of my first thoughts - was a recent yard trip where servicing the stabilizers on the to do list? A 4 to 6" hole 5 feet below the WL could quickly prove fatal.

Pure speculation of course.

Just a 4" hole from a dropped shaft? You'd think one of the Brazilian babes could have jumped overboard and popped a champagne cork or two in it

So on a vessel of that size, what would the dewatering capacity (bilge pumps) be? I would like to think that my 4 bilge pumps could keep up with a raw water hose failure, just curious what a ship of that class would be required to have?
