Rough ride on explorer?

Recommended Posts

I must of missed the news, how was the propeller damaged?


We were on the cruise when the prop was damaged. 23 Jan-1 Feb 2009. Somewhere between Sammana and Labadee we hit something around 6'oclock in the evening. Not sure what, but it damaged the starboard side prop. It caused a lot of vibration and was shut down. The only difference running on 2 out of the three azipods was a reduction of speed from about 24kts to 19-20kts. They have been onschedule recently even with the reduced speeds.
