A MAST on a boat which was being towed by a Boatworks+ vehicle got caught in cables for decorative lights at about 11am yesterday.

A Land Rover Defender was towing the Tommy Hawk 20 when the mast got caught in the wires by the traffic light crossing from the bus terminus to the Albert Pier, St Peter Port.

The vehicle was heading towards the Weighbridge.

Boatworks+ IT manager Paul Weeks said it was looking into the incident and he did not believe it had caused any damage.

‘We are trying to find who looks after them [the lights] and make sure they are happy.

‘If there is any damage we will remedy it. ‘With big boats we would dismantle the mast, but it was not necessary for a small boat for such a short distance.’

He`s obviously one of these high flying "geniuses" that hasn`t been involved in the work side of the business but are "Experts" when it comes to planning the important things like a route for moving equipment no matter what size it is.

If this had been a £1,000,000 yacht you can bet your life this wouldn`t have happened.
