Crazy Start to the day..

at CFB Esquimalt



A huge Seattle factory fishing trawler smashed into a docked navy frigate this morning sending a wall of waves over the bows of both vessels in a spectacular crash at about 8 a.m., according to witnesses. ....6 people were hurt..

“The Winnipeg got pushed back considerably,” Edwards said. “You could see it move. The body of the Winnipeg must have been pushed back at least 20 feet or more . It was a hard enough hit to push it backwards even though it was tied up.
Story

One of the tow lines snapped according to a co-worker who saw this.

Re: Crazy Start to the day..

the damage on the Navy ship will be payed for with tax money, but I wonder if the insurance will pay for the repairs on the fishing trawler. It must be rather devastating for the owner.

Did anyone get hurt? Ships can be rapaired easily - with people it's a good deal harder.

6 people with minor injuries
but it could have been worse.

as for the ship the unseen damage will come out later who to say the whole ship isn't tweaked a bit, I know that if the loader are off as much as an 1/8" the shells wont load.
and when I saw the ship yesterday when I was delivering to a shop near it there is a bid dent at the water line in the stern from it being pushed back about 20-30 ft. on impact.

here is the story in Fridays paper with images
