$10 million yacht sinks after launch
A $10 million, 90-foot yacht was being launched in Washington state when it suddenly capsized.Did you do it too? Did you skim the article quickly and think that the yacht was named "Biden"? I laughed for several minutes before I realized I was in error...
The yacht, named Baden, had already been lowered into the water in Anacortes, Washington, when it slowly tilted and then sank, according to media reports.
Here's the poor yacht:
Ever wanted to see $10 million spiraling the drain?
Now, not to point fingers or anything, but I did notice that the yacht building company has since gone out of business. They placed the blame on the company that launched the yacht, and while I'm certainly no expert on yacht launching, I've helped put a few boats into water in my time, and the launch itself looked to be up to spec.
I also can't help but wonder if, where this was a "research" yacht and not a pleasure craft, if this was one of those vessels that was headed north to gain "proof" of global warming. I think if that were the case, the schadenfreude would be overwhelming. As it stands, all I have is a minor case of the "haw-haws".
Because, you know, yacht launch fail!
That is all.
