The saving procedure of the HBI boat at the pier of Hotel Desaret.

After another day (25.05) of waiting for calmer weather, we experienced one of the worst day here. Engine problems at the HBI boat, high winds and waves caused that the boat smashed for 1-2 hours on the dock in front of the hotel. Everybody was helping to keep the boat from the dock as good as possible. The dock got distinctly damaged, the boat also had some damage, but at the end of the day, nobody was injured, the boat (and also the shuttle boat) was still floating. A tourist boat managed to tow the HBI boat into the hangar of the institute. A long and hard day for everybody.
