    Alternative title might be 'Don't try this on your boat' !

    They are good, thanks.

    Nothing works on an old boat, except the skipper.

    2nd Picture - Yep - that's why I sail a cat

    3rd Picture - how did that cat get there? Doesn't look like enough tidal range going by the quay behind!

    Photoshop?

    The fenders don't look like they are hanging at the right angle on the cat in the marina.

    Agree about the fenders but the shadows look very good!

    No photoshop, I'm sure - the fine detail would be impossible to fake - look at the guard rails and how one cuts across the bike in the background. Also check out the angle of the rope dangling off the port bow.

    Or an isolated rogue wave that violently threw the boat into reverse, jamming the rudders (cue angst discussions over stock dimension and quality of build) - sliding it arse-first up that piling, and forcing the crew to evacuate ...

    More than likely but it does prove that at least you can do
    it in catamaran and is therefore better than a mono!
    Wonder what make of anchor they were using to drag like that

    The left side of the picture, far behind the cat, shows a dock that has it's far side propped on the pier, the near side is hanging down. On the right side of the photo, below the pier, you can see the other end of said dock, it's angled upwards as you follow it leftward.

    Must have been storm surge. I'd say, not photoshop.

    Nice find Karen.

    Paul.

    Dunno how they got it there, but I bet getting it off is gonna be much harder!

    The Privilege on the pile. is real. Big storm in Biscay combined with high spring tide took the pontoons all the way to the top of the piles.

    I've seen other photos of the boat once it was recovered. The hull was pierced by the pile but fortunately it was prevented from going further by the holding tank.

    On that second picture I suggest that they ease the sheet a little..............
