Junk, obviously.
 
2011-10-14 02:33:15 PM  
The engineers and builders were immediately rounded up and shot.

If only American companies had this kind of ethic, we wouldn't have had to suffer through the Chevelle.

That's not a yacht. That's a ferry.

RexTalionis: That's not a yacht. That's a ferry.


was it a ferry? looked like some kind of flat bottom river boat.

dont boats float by displacement?
that POS will never float. unless it is a shiat ton light than in looks. the draft is WAY too small.
LOL

so someones brother built this boat, but cut costs buy getting of all the wasted parts which were under water??? bhwhahahahahahaahah

Poor Yellow River. An hour later it was hungry for another yacht.

"improper handling from the builders who mistakenly estimated the water level causing the water level to exceed the limit."

Since Archimedes ran naked in the street in ancient Greece, no one estimates water lines. They can be accurately calculated. Unless, of course, the whole boat was build by tinkerers who had never heard of Archimedes.

Screw that noise

Haven't people learned yet that stuff made in China is crap?
 
2011-10-14 04:44:25 PM  

phlegmmo: Junk, obviously.


I see what you did there.

which makes that "boat" so funny ....
unless it is CRAZY light, made of fiberglass and titanium, there is no way it could float, or float and still carry passengers ... imagine when they tried to fuel it and the boat sank? bahahahahahahahaha

2011-10-14 05:12:03 PM  
So another Chinese trinket that breaks the first time you use it....
 
2011-10-14 05:13:08 PM  
Too much lead in it? Is china the lead capital of the world or something?
 
2011-10-14 05:13:49 PM  
But, first, are you experienced?
Well, have you ever been experienced?
 
2011-10-14 05:14:05 PM  
Maybe they should build some kind of boat launching construction first...
 
2011-10-14 05:14:06 PM  
So that's what happened to the lead they took out of other products.
 
2011-10-14 05:14:10 PM  
lulz.

Go on...

They were a sucky band.
 
2011-10-14 05:16:02 PM  
ah, engineering at its finest.



phlegmmo: Junk, obviously.


*applauds*
 
2011-10-14 05:16:39 PM  
My god what a half-assed launch - ropes and sandbags, down a dirt slope.

2011-10-14 05:17:49 PM  
It looks like it *might* float. If it were unloaded. And lowered straight down onto the water.
 
2011-10-14 05:17:59 PM  
Presenting the new submarines they will be selling to Iran shortly. Can't wait to see the aircraft carrier they are building. Sure hope there are a lot of life rafts aboard.
 
2011-10-14 05:18:14 PM  
Did it hit a log or some sort of hole when it sank?
 
2011-10-14 05:18:50 PM  

phlegmmo: Junk, obviously.


Must be some chink in the design.
 
2011-10-14 05:20:10 PM  

stirfrybry: ROR


I see what you did there
 
2011-10-14 05:20:12 PM  
and this comes from the country that the news tells me to be afraid of?
 
2011-10-14 05:21:04 PM  
Fail.

1 - not a yacht, it's a boat.

2 - Most boats have been made in China since the 1980s.

All of a sudden Miranda Kerr's bra looks like a pretty good bargin.
 
2011-10-14 05:21:37 PM  
the problem is it went in at too steep and angle and the water went over the stern and it flooded. If they would have launched at a flatter angle it would have been a problem.
 
2011-10-14 05:21:46 PM  
Did they outsource the materials?
 
2011-10-14 05:22:44 PM  
Would *NOT* have been a problem.

Damn, I need to proof read better.
 
2011-10-14 05:23:01 PM  
Oh won't you float me home tonight?
Oh down beside your wet stern light,
Oh and the freeboard you forgot.
Flat bottomed hulls you make the frickin' yacht go down

Any submariner in the Navy will tell you that subs are boats, stuff on the surface are ships.

/Will also tell you there are two kinds of vessels
//Subs and targets

garumph: Would *NOT* have been a problem.


You had it right the first time. No freeboard to speak of, looked top-heavy to boot. Half a sneeze would have capsized it.

What a piece of shiat those were.

I'm sure they were hungry for another Chinese yacht an hour later and--

Dude, the preferred nomenclature, Asian-American yacht.
 
2011-10-14 05:25:49 PM  
So much for the maiden voyage of the Thaitanic.

Do subs not target other subs out of professional courtesy now?
 
2011-10-14 05:27:17 PM  
I'm guessing the Chinese are having a hard time not believing that Lead doesn't float.

/SUPPLIES!
 
2011-10-14 05:27:21 PM  
That's what they get for putting peepee in my Coke.
 
2011-10-14 05:27:44 PM  
I'll wait for the Snopes explanation of what this video really shows.
 
2011-10-14 05:27:47 PM  
It's starting. Be aware.
 
2011-10-14 05:28:36 PM  
Bah, they'll just 3D print a new one.
 
2011-10-14 05:28:39 PM  
Not a yacht. Either a ferry or river cruise boat. River cruises are very popular in both Europe and China.
 
2011-10-14 05:28:53 PM  
That's what happens when you try to calculate displacement on an abacus.

It's a river boat, not an ocean liner, it doesn't need a lot of freeboard.

Chines boats are junk.
