Those pictures remind me of my trip to St. Johns. Waiting to take the ferry to St. Johns from St. ThomasI was having a beer at a bar watching a freighter being unloaded. There was a brand newPeterbuilt dump truck on the top of the boxes. They hooked up to the truck and i thought to myself how it would suck if they dropped it. They got it swung off the boatand over the dock and one of the shackles broke. It was about sixty feet in the air when it fell and it landed upside down on the dock. The truck was completely trashed. No telling how long someone waited for that thing to be delivered.

The bartender said it happens all the time. I believe if I ran the docks, I would be looking for some new riggers.

HaterAide (10/14/2009)Maybe like the 15th time these pictures have been shown on here...
Not sure how many times or where I've seen this but I have seen it a few times. Can you imagine how hard that guy in the transom door it going to hit?

Not even the same vessels. Check the rigging on the hoisting gear. Where is the bow railin the third photo? Where is the stainless steel shield protecting the bow from the anchorin the third photo?

Nice Photoshop though.

If you read further down in the Snopes article, you'll see thatit states that "the first photograph is included to illustrate the loading procedure and did not necessarily originate with the same sequence".

I know that such accidents happen. I was saying B.S. to the sequence as depicted. I'm pretty sure that the second photograph is also not part of the actual sequence. Notice the exposure and color variations.

Consequently, in regards to the sequence of photos, I'm still calling it

The point of the original post is the fact that somebody had a bad when this happened. So what if the first picture isn't the boat that splashed. Why is that BS? I think the BS is in your post. JMHO

It may not be the same boat and all that but I guarantee you this The poor guy on the port side stern in the second pic had a bad bad day.



and on the anchor guard could be the sun is shining on it or it got thorn off when it hit bottom thruster ground plates all that match.

If you read my post carefully, you would see that I was questioning the photo sequence and not the event itself but apparently that's expecting too much of a rotorhead.

Snopes already stated that the first photo is not related to the event. Take a good look at the two people in the water in the third photo. Compare them to the capsized boat. Using the people as a scale, does it seem that that is a 65' vessel? Also, the vessel in the second photo is not the same as the capsized one. That's photoshop. If you're interested, I can point out a couple of other discrepancies in the photos.

As I said before, I'm not questioning that the event happened, I'm questioning the photos.
