Jet Skiier Sucked Under By Cargo Ship

I disagree with their analysis here. The reason it went under is because his lanyard got pulled out (because he hit the side of the ship, or tried to use his lanyard arm to push away from the ship). Because of that he lost momentum THEN got sucked under.

Full video is near the bottom of the article.

Of course the real reason is the stupidity of the jet skiier. Lucky boy.

The level of utter stupidity on display here is monumental. Biblical. Galactic.

This idiot was in mortal peril in the opening frame of this video, and then just doubled down every two seconds until what should have been the moment of his death.

Stay. Away. From. Ships.

Awesome display of stupidity. Amazing display of personal camera technology, however...

Well, he tried as hard as he could to die.

And, then found one more thing he wasn't any good at.

I've also come across windsurfers who force right of way by intentionally going across my bow.

Have no video of it, but still as clear as the day it happened back in 2017. Headed up the St. Mary's river to the Soo Lock to enter Lake Superior. There's a 900' +/- ore carrier ahead of me as we come to the top of Sugar Island. He's constrained by traffic ahead waiting to get into the lock. So he's moving about 1 to 2 knots against a stiff current, trying to hold position in a very narrow channel dynamited out of the stone river bottom. Slow forward motion with some rudder and the occasional shot from the bow thruster.

Then the village idiots on SUPs (stand up paddleboard) paddle out from the park, down the side of the ship and under the fantail. An urgent call is made to the USCG, who arrive in record time to scatter the village idiots.

Had been having an exchange with the ship's captain about overtaking him after the turn, when the SUPs appeared. He handled it amazingly well considering his options were to end up on the rocks or grind up some idiots.

I was hoping one of them would get washed ashore by a bow thruster shot.

Didn't see the sucking under part. Yeah, he got dumped in the water, but not sucked under AFAICT.

Physics, the silent killer.

Lucky for him they didn't have a bit more way on, he might have surfaced in their wake instead. Or maybe not...

Bank suction usually happens when a deep draft vessel is moving quickly in a narrow channel. Does not usually happen in open water. The reason it happens is that the boat displaces water and so is drawn into the side of the channel because water is trying to get back to fill in where the water was displaced. The QE 2 hit bottom in New England years back because it was moving fast through shallow water and the ship actually got sucked down by the fast moving water beneath the hull and so close to the bottom. It is sort of a venturi effect if I am explaining it correctly. So it was drawing more water than usual. They found bottom paint on a rock that was deeper than the normal draft of the ship.
