(SeattlePI)   When buying a multimillion dollar yacht, make sure it has a champagne bar, multiple Jacuzzis, and a good supply of strippers and coke. Optionally, you could also make sure it floats before setting sail   (seattlepi.com) divider line 43

Make sure the lives are close at hand in case you hit choppy seas too.

Why the hell would you launch a yacht at 9pm?

What was the ship's name? "Poseidon"? "Titanic"?  "Flipper"?

I can just see the owner crying when they started to axe the compartments open

The guys who worked on the boat insisted on it being launched in the dark for some weird reason. Something about "good luck". They also said no refunds after the boat touches the water.

Slightly more informative article. $10m, newly built, the builder has to pay for salvage.

Realistically it would be good for the builder to pay for a new one. Otherwise that's publicity you won't like.

Needs a better story to get pics http://www.komonews.com/news/local/Multimillion-dollar-yacht-sinks-nea r-Anacortes-6-rescued-259794431.html

According to other guys, the yacht got stuck in traffic because it got snagged. So I'd say we aren't dealing with the most professional shipyarders.
 
2014-05-19 10:11:20 PM
"An investigation is pending as to why the yacht sank"

My guess: Lack of buoyancy.

Jeng: Thanks for linking to an article with a picture of said  sad boat.


Are there others out there that cringe a little when the word "said" is used as a demonstrative adjective? It's so frequently used on fark I've wondered if it were some meme mocking someone for using it earnestly. Perhaps some GED candidate who imagines it makes himself sound like a Philadelphia lawyer. I understand it is perfectly cromulent usage but it reeks of middle-management business-speak. 
/With sincere apologies to Jeng. I've thought about bringing this up on a few occasions. Your example was simply a camel's back thing. Often it has been way worse.

Oh, that's an excellent photo of the Vasa.  I tried, but didn't have a tripod and the lighting is so dim in that museum.

What is it that you think you are telling me? (aside from letting it go, which is fine advice) I did mention that I knew it was legitimate (although awkward) usage, that perhaps some farkers think it is clever to speak legalese, and that it might all be a recurring joke on fark- just like this one that flew over sandbar67's head:

The article should have said it cost $10M; it's obviously not worth that.

FTA: "A team has been sent in to assess pollution from fuel aboard the vessel."

Really? Do you really need a team? A whole team? How big of a team are we talking about? The boat capsized. Its fuel and oil ended up in the water. Case closed. Get over it.

I suggest getting the strippers separately.  The ones that come in the package deal aren't worth it.

For a boat that size, don't they basically dump it in sideways from the dry dock? It's no like backing your 16' bass boat into the lake. Why the fark would anyone be on it at launch?
