Re: Have you ever hit a shipping container?

Collisions with objects in the water mostly containers, whales and tree trunks are reasonably common and often very serious.

I had drinks on a boat a few days ago that hit an unknown object in the dark. There was a large split in keel, but they managed to make it to a marina that hauled them out, but wanted to put them back in immediately because here was no room.
Fine they said we will sink in the marina then!

No person experience thank goodness, but I have seen a few objects that would do a lot of damage.
