Princess 67 hits Thames Bridge with hundreds of spectators in this week’s Boat Fail.

We weren’t able to not have this video as our boat fail of the week. This chap took advantage of having a beautiful boat on a beautiful weekend, but what happened was far from beautiful.

With hundreds of people watching from the banks, the helmsman didn’t back away enough and ended up pinned against the bridge.
