First Dent

The month-old Seabourn Encore broke its aft moorings Sunday afternoon (local time) while it was docked at Timaru (NZ). Sudden strong winds (up to 45 knots) then carried the ship's stern a couple hundred feet so that it allided with the cargo ship Milburn Carrier II and then came to rest against the wharf.

There were no injuries on either vessel.

Details appeared in the February 13 edition of Cruise News Daily. Cell phone video of the incident is below.
