Default Major accident with Nor-tech 36 Supercat in Norway

Important, all 5 parties in boat are ok. Minor bruises, cuts etc

Accident happened while a mechanic tested the boat after service. High speed and some waves from larger boats have been indicated as reason for accident.

A couple of BIG band-aides and a little super glue and she'll be just fine

Glad everyone is OK!!!

I hope the mechanic has insurance I didn't realize it took 5 people to test a boat???

Yup. Hope he was insured. Was this guy your average mechanic or has he indeed driven a 1/2 mill supercat b4?

Did anyone notice the Speed Racer boat in the Video? Looks like a 40' 6 Seater. Isn't Speedy a 44' 5 seater now and resides in Jersey?

Politiet fikk melding om ulykken ved 15-tiden. Øyenvitner forteller at båten skulle hoppe i bølgene etter Redningsskøyta, da den gikk rundt i de høye bølgene.

- Båten kjørte i stor fart og snurret rundt slik at den landet med kjølen opp, forteller operasjonsleder Bjarne Bakken i Agder politidistrikt. Dette skjedde i Tromøysund rett før klokken 15.00 tirsdag.
Det var 5 personer ombord i båten, som alle falt i vannet.

Det var dermed kort vei for Redningsskøyta da de skulle berge de skipbrudne.

Etter det Agderposten erfarer skal de fem i båten har fått bruddskader, kuttskader og lettere hodeskader. Alle fem er kjørt til sykehuset i Arendal.
That clears it up for me.
