This is old news but still quite spectacular piece of video and appropriate to my week of Marine Emergency Duties (MEDs) training than I expected. We watched plenty of videos on all kinds of marine disasters, but this one that someone sent Greig on Facebook was of the North Arm Venture from July of this year, which we used to see cruising by the Bowie often. I recall hearing about a tug flipping up in Skookumchuck Narrows (pronounced skoo-cum-chuck) last summer but this is the first I realize it was the Venture nor had I of heard or seen of this video.
Here is the link to the video taken by some kayakers and the article in the Coast Reporter Newspaper.
Thankfully, a beautiful summer day and you can see nobody was wearing life jackets either. It was so very, very quick. The Narrows are a renowned perilous stretch of water and a challenge to any skipper towing anything through it at the best of times.
I was really surprised at how long it took the engines on this to stop. I guess one crew man was trapped in there for some time but did get out thankfully. Lucky that this didn't turn out worse than it did.
