One says: “Definately Marinette’s yard, the ship in the background is one of the Freedom Class LCS boats. Given the lack of other people in the shot I’d bet this was a remote camera.”

Certainly the amount of debris and water that comes flying at the camera looks as if it would cause more than scratches and bruises but according to his Redditor friend, Jason Bundoff is afraid to post anything more about the aftermath for privacy reasons.

What is clear is that the sliders that guide the boat into the water don’t extend as far as they should.

Though all launches create a dramatic wave, the ship usually tips back the right way after its initial immersion.

In Jason Bundoff’s video, clearly part of the dock equipment breaks off explaining the debris and validating at least the fact that it the launch was a failure.
