Default Sailboter crushed front end in San Francisco Bay...

Some saleboter tried on his nav-rules knowledge on a much bigger opponent!

Looking at the whole sequence this was totally avoidable from the "Stand-By" boat. No matter who had the right of way.

They skipper of "Stand-By" if he can deemed to even be called that... was more than likely in an argument over if toilet paper should go over or under....

He was lucky he and his crew did not get killed proving his navigational rules point, what an idiot.

The big boy looks pretty CGI/photochopped, but damn that'd be the chit's if it wasn't!

Edit: Nope, it's real!

Thanks for the pics man!! Pretty light damage considering, but it IS like a high school punter hitting an NFL linebacker in comparison.

What an incredible blowboat..... I'd watch a crew sail that thing all over the world for me!

Weird, I was just looking at that boat on the internet the other day. It was in the news for some reason. Its the worlds largest privately owned yacht. Owned a guy who had one of the largest venture capital groups out there.. Its amazing inside, do a search under the name "Maltese Falcon" and check it out. twin 1800 HP diesels in it also!

Looks like the Stand By guy was out and about his merry way after the incident, until the CG showed up. WTF!

Wouldn't that be the "stand-off" boat?
