I thought we would all get a kick out of this one!
Kinda feel bad for that poor guy "gripping" in the transom door, that had to hurt!
That is got to be the worst kind of repair!

Check out the guy at the transom. What a ride! Not a country where elf and safety has much of a remit!
The whole video is on Youtube.

That is a shot of a 55 foot Carver that was being delivered in the Arab Emirates (if memory serves) about four years ago. It was secured on the deck of a Dutch? container ship, and as it was being lowered the sling gave way, ripping the underwater mechanicals off the hull. Surprisingly, there were two people aboard, and they survived with little injury. The boat owner had not taken possession of the boat at this point, so it was on the shipping line to make it right. There was no video, just still pictures.

I hate for that to happen to any boat, but just look at the entry! Any diving coach would be proud.

I found this on you tube it's not the same but close. Same concept, it is in another language but I am thinking no translation needed on what this guy said. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gK7GKVSH-BA
