    Someone sent me this video last year but we still play it some to hear the music. This wreck happen several years ago but maybe some that haven't seen it. The online copy quality is not quite as good.

    that was good, Dayton. thanks. reminds me of one, i think it was a tug, that went under a bridge during flood waters, rolled over, and righted itself on the other side - anyone else remember that?

    The combination of a quick search on my cellphone & 2 secs on YouTube came up with the following Dayton.

    It's a 1987 song called "Sailing Home" by Piet Veerman.

    Sailing home (Piet Veerman)
    [youtubevid]i9Dn63tdfaw[/youtubevid]


    Sailin` home across the ocean,
    sailin` home we`re goin` to be free.
    Down below the crew`s in motion,
    to defy the violence of the sea.
    Feelin` young, feelin` strong,
    at the hight of the fight,
    so nothing can go wrong.
    We know we`ll always wanna be,
    fighting the sea.

    Giant waves are rollin` higher,
    `s gonna be a cold and rainy night.
    Hands on deck are raw and tired,
    prayin` for a sign of distant light.
    Feelin` young, feelin` strong,
    and the might of the night,
    is pounding dark and long.
    We know we`ll always wanna be,
    fighting the sea.

    But there`s the light,
    and there`s the fire.
    The harbour key,
    shines dimly on the shore.
    We can see the steeple spire.
    And we know ,
    we won the fight once more.
    Feelin` young, feelin` strong,
    and tonight came out right.
    But tomorrow could be wrong.
    We know we`ll always wanna be,
    fighting the sea.
    SailinÂ’ home, sailinÂ’ home.

    Mike, That's the first time we've heard the complete song. We normally only like country but that one we both like.

    Phil, someone sent me the tug/under the bridge pictures couple years ago and a video of the pictures was recently posted here on BOC... probably same link as you show.

    thanks for the link, dayton. my cousin recieved a coast guard comidation years back when a tug hit a bridge in the fog. they used his bardges to land the rescue chopper on and treat the injured. i forwarded both vids to him.

    thanks to you too phil.
