Epic Interrupted

Recommended Posts

EPIC is heading towards the sea buoy at 12 knots and web cam shows two tugs heading down the channel in that direction

 

1249

 

make that 3 tugs and a pilot boat moving now

Then this would indicate that there is actually a propulsion problem, rather than the previously reported engine problem.

in the channel and IMO going about 2 kts slower than most do this transit (6 vs 8 knots)

 

aka .... walking very carefully .....

 

wind in 10 mph ... not a significant factor and far from the speed where tugs get required by COTP.

Which dents are you referring to?  I don't see anything other than the two that were shown before.

That's the only damage. Two scratches.

 

Also looks like prop wash only on the starboard side. Tough to confirm though.

looking at stern and I see prop wash on stbd side only

 

suggesting port side is not operating

 

tug made up in 'full assist' mode ... not just standing by or ready for a lil nudge .... one at stern is applying the brakes.

If you have a Roku, looks great on the PTZ TV channel...and is about 2 minutes ahead of what is being shown on the webcam site.

tugboat right up to Epic's AFT starboard side and 2nd tugboat being "tethered" behind the AFT via rope/cable ... seeing just prop wave, starboard side - like others. 

 

From various social media photos & videos that I saw, not seeing any scratches or damages.  OK, those 2 were deep scratches.

Looks like a hole to me!

Look at the earlier pictures that are closer.  There is no hole, or the ship would not have sailed from San Juan.

web cam on a browser can fall behind ... refresh the page and it catches up .... 

 

concur CG would not let sail without some repair to a hole. as I mentioned the inspector's office was a short walk away!

The webcam is going to be able to show the repairs if they are outside the ship.

Nice shot of our aft corner cabin that we should be in right about now, we canceled because of port changes.

don't count on the webcam staying on EPIC .... right now it is "manned" ... not that way most of the time so it will just point down channel .....

 

they might leave it on E but I doubt it.  It is manned now cuz sailaways will be staring in a bit.

It seems to be within 20 seconds now after a refresh.  Roku channel is much nicer though!

Thanks. 

I didn't even know that there was a Roku channel. It's much better than browser.

Dock workers pulling up & tightening the AFT ropes, portside from the Epic and tying up - engine stops.  Tugs now moving away & leaving, mission accomplished for them.  

 

R E L I E F - for getting passengers, crew & ship home safely.
