DAMEN Shipyard invited friends and customers to a special event at the 06.10.2016. A lot of workboats were in the shipyards own port ready for test sails. In and in front of a big tent were an exhibition of the suppliers. Besides the different types of tugboats there were also two RHIBs. These are two real beasts with about 800hp. The top speed is about 55kts. It was a great fun to sail with these boats, but the last trip was a little bit „strange“. One of these boots throw me overboard during a hard turn to port with a speed of about 38kts (70km/h). The lifebelt inflats immediately after hitting the water and I was rescued after 3minutes. After returning to the shipyards port the guys from the ECOLINER offered me a hot shower and some dry clothes. Thanks for that chaps! The swimming killed my mobile phone, but the car key survived, because it is waterproof. It was a great stunt for me and a fantastic event for all the visitors. I would like to say thank you to some special people. Thank you to the guys from the ECOLINER for the shower, the clothes and the hospitality. Thank you Dio for your care (he checked if I am still ok during the night) and the new mobile phone. Thank you to Frank and Nathalie for the invitation. Last but not least a big thank you to the whole team of this event for the hospitality at the
