    Re: Cruise ship destroys small boat marina with thrusters.
    From: Antoine Couëtte

    Anyway ... given the strong cross wind from her starboard side - and from her position and her sizable lateral speed at the beginning of the video - she was going to either crush the marina, or wash it apart. Second option was put in application just in time ... These side-thrusters are amazingly responsive (electrical engines ???), powerful and and efficient, and I am guessing that they might have run full power if not emergency/overboost power.

    Meanwhile, the passengers kept extremely cool, probably totally unaware of the fast developing potentially catastrophic situation.

    And at least she did not run aground (this time) !

    Very nice video, Gary ! Thanks a lot ...
