I hope that nobody was taking a snooze below on one of those docked powerboats. Would seem like waking to Armageddon, I'm sure.

We had a similar event near my house a few years ago - a large ferry lost prop control entering the dock and turned into the beach and marina to avoid a super hard landing. There's vid of it somewhere - B.C. ferry crash or Horseshoe bay ferry incident or something.

To fit the Caddyshack reference, it would have been funny if after the ship finally came to a stop, the life boat dropped.

Would be interesting what the tug boat was doing while the carnage was happening. Waiting for the contract to be signed?

interesting part of that accident is that it was caused by one tiny cotter pin falling out!

Maxx, nice video link... interesting most of the boat are POWER boats and few of them actually sink!

At 0:37, I believe we see a Mac 26x in the foreground. Might they have been aiming for that?
