And you thought you were having a tough day at the office.

Precisely why the 320-foot, 5,000-ton cement carrier crunched a dozen or so boats docked at a marina in Norway is unclear, but it made for quite a show.

Investigating officials reported a thruster problem as the cause of the July accident in the port of Lavanger, although it remains under investigation.

Between 10 and 15 boats were damaged as the Cyprus Cement plowed through the marina, and two sank, according to the Norwegian news source NRK. No injuries were reported, and damages are estimated to be in the millions in U.S. dollars.
