Cool YouTube Videos

I thought I’d take advantage of John’s new tools here and create a forum of YouTube videos, maritime related or not, that are pretty sweet. Here are some of my favorites.

nice!

I’ll send a free t-shirt to the person who finds the video of a navy tug sinking right next to a navy ship. They use to show the video as part of BRM traning at SUNY Maritime. I don’t remember the specifics but I’m looking for a particular one and the story that goes with it.
Also, does anyone have the navy video of a line parting. It was similar to the one attached below but more impressive. I think there was a maniquine involved as well but, like my other stories involving manequines, it’s been over 10 years since I’ve seen it.

BTW the story behind New3’s last video can be found HERE. I’m still amazed there were no human causilties.

John,

The video you’re talking about is called “Synthetic Line Snapback” It was done back in the 1970’s. I sure don’t have it, but you might try

I know the video you’re talking about John. It’s a tug and a submarine (not sure about the Navy part). As I remember it, the sub pulled away too fast and the tug couldn’t keep up, tug got sucked alongside, and one of the rear dive planes on the sub ripped the bottom of the tug out. I think the tug sinks in under 30 seconds…whole video is less than a minute. Pretty crazy.
<strong>NOTE:</strong> Apparently Fox didn’t like the fact that the Family Guy clip was on YouTube, and it was removed to due copyright violations.
It’s still funny though…

And while this vid doesn’t show synthetic line parting, it’s an arrestor cable on a carrier that parts when a jet lands…one guy somehow jumps it, another gets taken out by it.

My neighbor was on the flight deck of GW when this happened.
Final Count
1 wet, scared, and bruised F-18 pilot. He hd to eject
1 F-18 in the water
7 guys on the flight deck hurt, 5 to the point that they were medically retired
8-10 careers over for falsifying records or failing to get proper maintenance done on the cable system.
The hydraulics that were supposed to slow the plane failed, and let the whole cable pay out

I searched all over but couldn’t find the snapback video online anywhere. However, you can buy it www.forces.gc.ca/site/avdb/ProdInfo_e.asp <-- there. No idea how much it costs but be sure to put it online so the rest of us don’t have to buy it. I looked all over for the tug video but couldn’t find it.

Here’s my contribution to favorite videos.

It’s based off of an incident involving the greek tanker Kirki
The video of the actual event can be found at http://xml.truveo.com/rd?i=4125233982&a=af6f670b39b1121cf54358467c12e869&p=1&q=id%3A4116408490&vl=4116408490%20

The very first one at the top of the page was my first trial as a new lawyer, we represented the guy who got smacked by the Nantucket ferry (or his insurance company who was paying outr bill). The guy insisted on going to trial and refused to take our repeated advice to settle for anything they’d offer. We had so little chance that they figured it was good practice for the new guy to try the case. The collision was about 1990, the you tube video is clipped, I have a longer copy that shows the guy’s fiancee hugging the mast as the boat settles onto the bottom. If you look close just before the collision you can see the guy jump off the back of the boat.

Which Nantucket ferry was that?

CMA_Decky, that one is good but here’s my favorite:

I think it was the Naushon, but am not certain. The sailboat was “Reveler.”

Ah yes, a classic. Thank you for your consideration kind sir.

Graduate License student at SUNY MAritime…(former SIU Apprentice grad…former US Coast Guard active/Army Reservist) I have made a few post here and there in the past. Question is an old one “WHERE ON THE WEB IS THE OLD SNAPBACK TRAING VIDEO?” This was a topic of discussion between myself and Captain Stevens during his ‘Vessel Ops’ class. Anybody? Anywhere? I told him I was sure I could find a copy on the web…i guess I was wrong. Thanks.

I actually have the navy line safety video on vhs somewhere. If I come across it again during my move next week I will transfer it to digital and upload it for you.

That was the ‘Nantucket’ entering Hyannis harbor.

So… what was the outcome? curiosity is killing the cat… so to speak.

I was looking for a generic video thread and found this one from years ago, thought I would bump it.

Here is a video I saw recently with Richard Hammond from Top Gear:
