Paul Allen’s MegaYacht Destroys Protected Coral Reef

Billionaire's 'Megayacht' destroys 80% of West Bay's protected Caribbean coral reef.

An anchor chain on the 300-foot mega-yacht, the MV Tatoosh, owned by billionaire Paul Allen, has destroyed almost 14,000 sq.ft of reef in the West Bay replenishment zone, the Department of Environment confirmed following a survey of the area. DoE officials said more than 80% of the coral in the area has been damaged by the luxury boat’s chain.

And, of course, the staunch environmentalist himself, Mr. Allen, has expressed his concern by stating that "Media reports are greatly exaggerated" and by blaming the local port authority for the damage his [expletive] boat has caused.

Grow the hell up Mr. Allen and take repsonsibility for your uber-ostentatious toy.

And why don't you break out your check book while you're at it and give the a cool billion to repair the reef in the West Bay replenishment zone.
