Way OT, but very cool!

Okay, so I was looking around the kaleco auto page and one of the posters listed this:

Now that is amazing!

If you follow the link at the top, it takes you to a page that will then take you to a news article. I think it was $37,000 damage and the towboat is still operating to this day.

Thats regosh-darn-diculous!!!! I can't imagine being on that boat when that happened. Too bad there isn't full video of it, that'd be quite amusing.

Re: Way OT, but very cool!

That is unreal, [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] I would never imagined a tug could do that. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
I prolly would have needed a change of shorts and job after that. [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Re: Way OT, but very cool!

After watching some of those tugs work, I am always amazed at how much power those things have.

They are pretty much just a couple gigantic diesels, a hull, and a steering area....

They are super stable and can handle some pretty amazing seas. Figure that they are made to handle Atlantic and Gulf storms like they are nothing special.

Best regards
