Damage to £5m Sunseeker yacht is only cosmetic

LUCKY: The yacht will be easily put right

LUCKY: The yacht will be easily put right

First published in News

THE £5million luxury Sunseeker yacht that was damaged by fallen scaffolding will be delivered to its new owner just two weeks late.

Sunseeker confirmed the vessel sustained only cosmetic damage in the incident, which saw a temporary cleaning shed collapse on top of the boat during gale force winds last Thursday night.

As a result, only minor works were needed to put the damage right.

Repairs began in earnest yesterday and the 28-metre boat will be delivered to its new owners just a fortnight late.

How do you know?Being a scaffold design engineer i can see this scaffold clearly had no design what so ever It would of had some form of kentlege (e.g. Counter weights) attatched to the scaffold this did not.

If I wanted to worry about my grammar I would of become a english school teacher but I'm not. I know my job and that should never of happened regardless of what you lot say, also aswell i've seen the so called 'buttress' in the air but is no where near substantial enough for that type of scaffolding. Just out of interest who are the scaffold design engineer firm that G.M scaffold used?
