Default 72' Sunseeker that was dropped

I remember seeing a few pics of a 72' Sunseeker that was dropped on a wharf during offloading from a ship. All the photos I saw only showed one angle. Well here is a link to a site that shows the crane that overturned as well as photos of the yacht from multiple angles. If you have already seen them like the boat with all the yamis then ignore please but I had not seen these pics and thought I would share. I could not find the original post but Wylie if you want to move it to that post feel free.

Yeah I forgot to mention having to scroll past the other links on the site. But one of the links "riding down the Marquis" covers the other yacht drop that folks called a photo shop and that site is an attorney site for the shipping industry.

Not that I really care, but I'd be curious to hear what the buy out would be after that heep of scraps is settled out through insurance.
