Shock does funny things to reflexes and judgement.

Some Pro yacht captains have egos that forget they arent invincible

Curiosity got the better of me. Regardless of the circumstances this was a bad day for many people and tough to see in person.

Yours is a real classic, Dave. Pretty amazing then to realize how nice the boat is.

Happy to post the site where someone has been sharing some personal experience on this incident.


Not sure about the rules of the forum about posting a link to a different site.


If anyone is interested, can someone tell me if it is ok to post a link?

Dave, I remember seeing pictures of your boat on the rocks before you bought it. I can't remember where it happened though. Do you mind telling us?

Colvos Rocks. They are NNE of the entrance to Port Ludlow and NNW of Tala point just about right at 122°40' W.

They are well marked and well known. FWIW, Port Ludlow was the prior owners home port as well.

Appears a turn to port would have been indicated.

Actually they were headed toward a dock on the port side so had to turn to starboard, just not as far.

I owned a similar sized Queenship with DDEC controls. You could set throttle on bridge control then go to the pilothouse and "match" throttle settings and then switch to the pilot house controls. The boat would continue without a hiccup. I never used that feature at full cruise speed though but never had any problems with the system. I had Mathers Microcommander controls in another boat. They were much less predictable handing off control from one station to another.

Even DDECs have a run away shut off mechanism which closes off air supply to engine. On our boat the shutdown mechanism was cable operated from the pilothouse helm station. The operator either did not know about the Detroit emergency shutdown or the boat had a different engine package.

I would like to apologize for this flippant comment. As I read through the material posted on "the other" forum, I realize that it's definitely a case of "there but for the grace of God go I". I too have electronic controls (installed by PO) and it could (have) happened to me. The only difference is I have one engine and max speed is probably less.

It's hard to know, many times. We all see a boat like that and assume initially the operator just screwed up. Even upon hearing "throttle control problem" we remain somewhat skeptical but the more we read and see, the more the story fits. It reminds me a bit of the Toyota Camry owner who blamed the wreck on the accelerator. I wonder how many times police have heard that story. The accelerator stuck or the car just took off or my brakes failed me. Well, after the next Camry owner, then the next, then the next, reported the same, only then did we really believe there was a serious problem.

It would be interesting to hear directly from the operator but I'm sure they have other things to deal with and worry about than the audience of curiosity. I'm just thankful anytime there is an accident and no one seriously hurt. I know many look upon that day as him really having bad luck. I look upon it as a lot of people having very good luck because so much worse could have happened.

Now, we all see the photo and immediately it's like a contest for our brains to assign a humorous caption to it. I don't see anything so wrong with that once we know everyone is ok. In fact, if I was on the boat or even the operator I'd probably be doing the same now that it's all over.

For what it's worth, thought some might be interested in this shot I took of Bonkers on the hard. Hard to tell too much from my vantage point on the dinghy but there are some obvious bottom repairs. Don't know if running gear was already dealt with but if not it appears to be in remarkably good shape for what that boat endured.
