Anyway, amazing clip! Very similar cir***stances to an incident on Anglesey in July 2000. See photograph in Gallery (Thumb)
Reminded me of the time we were stuck at anchor, off the Bar at Liverpool. Stuck there for a couple of weeks on the San Veronico, 1961, we were waiting to go up to Stanwell (?) The Manchester Ship Canal was blocked by a sunken sand barge. When we finally got inside Eastam Lock, the tug that pulled the stern, let go and shot off...straight into the pier, looked as though he wanted to block the canal again...or wanted to shift the soot out of his funnel the hard way!!

Yes, David, notwithstanding a slight bump that might have jolted his hand as he read the latest email, there seemed no desire whatsoever to reduce the M/E speed and Full Ahead is being used regardless of the new medium through which the ship is now (not) moving.....flyer682 said:Unbelievable! Towards the end of the clip, the prop wash would seem to indicate she's still going ahead!
