Narrative:
The aircraft, operated by Trans Maldivian Airways was maneuvering on the water near the Floating Platform, after landing in the lagoon near Sun Island Resort, when it struck another Twin Otter (8Q-TMH) that was parked against the floating platform. There were no passengers on either aircraft.
Both aircraft sustained substantial damage.

Conclusions:
1. The accident was caused by an error on the part of the pilot in that he over-estimated the effect of the wind on the aircraft with the propellers feathered, and he attempted to apply reverse thrust too soon after taking action to unfeather the propellers.
2. There is room for improvement in the standard Operating Practices on the part of the operator.
