The Sailing yacht under the bridge the team reunited virtually to discuss the greatest moments of Season 2 during the first part of the reunion on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen June 21st. So of course that included a look back at the dockside accident, the biggest boating accident in Under the bridge the story.

As you may remember this season, after reaching the dock earlier today, the Parsifal III crashed into platform one second moment when it malfunctioned and the ship continued to reverse, even as Captain Glenn Shephard attempted to propel it forward. The yacht totally uprooted the concrete blocks from the dock in the crash, but luckily the boat suffered only cosmetic damage to the transom.

Captain Glenn was not 100% certain of the cause of the crash immediately after the crash or even in the months that followed. However, he recently learned what actually led to the malfunction, thanks to Sailing yacht under the bridge Season 1 chief engineer Byron Hissey. “I kind of understand what’s happened now. I spoke to Byron a few days ago and he had a very similar problem. When you’re on high revs, when you’re maneuvering and going under a stern it gets stuck sometimes, and that’s exactly what happened. I didn’t realize that until I talked to him, “said Captain Glenn. “He told the manufacturer of, it’s a variable-pitch propeller, and he said it was a known problem. I didn’t know that. I wish I had it. I wouldn’t have used them. higher speeds. “

Even though the damage to the stern of the boat looked quite unpleasant after the crash, it was actually not that expensive to repair, Captain Glenn revealed at the meeting. “The people who painted the boat just before this season owed us a free transom paint job,” he told host Andy Cohen at the shoot. “So I think it was a few thousand just to fill it up.”

Captain Glenn explained that they were lucky the transom hit the dock as it did. “It was just some filler material that was damaged, which we were really lucky,” he said. “Those stones that heaved up and up in the back, it was like a huge shock absorber, and it saved us.”

As to the cost of repairing the wharf, Captain Glenn said, “I think it was five, six thousand. Our insurance took care of it.

Overall, it looks like the real damage was done to Captain Glenn’s ego. “Yeah, I mean, that stuff doesn’t happen, doesn’t happen. And it does, and of course it’s on film, so it’s even better. Everyone I’ve worked with. go see it, “said Captain Glenn. said of the accident at the meeting. “So, yeah, that’s no fun.”

The only good thing that came out of this incident was that it showed Captain Glenn how gifted he was with a deck crew in Gary King, Sydney Zaruba and Jean-Luc Cerza-Lanaux as they made a “exemplary” job to deal with this problem. emergency situation, according to Parsifal III chief. “They were amazing. I mean, I don’t see it before because Gary and Sydney and JL, they’re fixing this issue in the back. I’m about 35 yards trying to control what the boat is doing,” said Captain Glenn. “Everyone has done wonders.”
