That'll buff out - Westport hits dock

This happened a day or so ago in my neck of the woods. 125 feet of lovely new boat vs. about 5 that were moored.

That is one scary looking incident, hopefully no one got injured? I'm surprised the spring line held for as long as it did.

Apparently the thing was so new it had not been named yet, so JustBob started a thread which has been a bit of fun:

Name this yacht!

It's interesting to look at the prop wash. It was going full blast until the boat hit the dock then all of a sudden it stopped, almost as if:


a. someone tripped, fell against the shifter and/or throttle
b. boat lurched forward knocking that person off his feet
c. boat continued forward hitting the dock and other boats
d. clumsy person finally got to his feet, pulled the shifter back to neutral.
e. prop wash stopped when boat was taken out of gear.


New boat, not yet named, someone's ass is gonna be reamed if they find out what happened.

As I watched the vid, there was a person on the flybridge that at first appeared to be at the helm. Shortly after the boat started to move, he moved to the port side of the fly bridge and was messing with something as the boat suddenly appeared to go to full throttle.

It is possible the person driving the boat was in the pilothouse and not on the bridge. It is also possible someone was at an aft cockpit helm station. However, it sure looks like the guy on the bridge was supposed to be driving the boat.

I don't think anyone was driving it per se. A mooring line ripped a cleat off the dock, so it was not a planned move.

It was almost certainly a failure of an electronic control system. It went full throttle and accelerated surprisingly quickly. The guys on the FB etc were unable to disengage throttle/gears before it hit the dock and other boats, but then were able to kill it. No doubt there was confusion for those onboard as to who was 'operating' it before they tired to disengage.

I read a report on a Sydney catamaran ferry running over a moored boat, coming to a halt with said boat stuck between its 2 hulls. Causes found were multiple, proximate cause seemed to be storing lines on steering gear impeding steering.
The action of the vessel was called "an uncommanded turn".

That’s why I like my old Lehman diesels. No computer to get in the way. They only do what I ask except go fast!

All you jumping in and assuming the problem is electronic controls, really need to hold off on that assumption.

I find it disturbing that the guy taking the video is more concerned with filming and getting his raingear than he is about helping anyone who may have been hurt.
