470 hits wall in Cleveland

What’s with all these boat accidents ?
 
Maybe there is a new trend going on

That 470 been salvaged yet? Someone down there has to have photos of this on land if it has been??
I have pics & video. Can't see much as the hole in the bottom is covered up from when they floated it up, towed it & hoisted it out. AFAIK, it hasn't been salvaged yet.
 
Here's what I said last Friday:

I am, frequently.

Got some pictures today on the hard and video yesterday of it coming in on bags and in the hoist. They patched the hole on the bottom and raised it and towed it in. Can't really see much.
 
I turned the radar on for the first time this weekend and it was intimidating. Having read this thread now and also listening to some others before, I plan to start learning how to use it.
We used ours all the time. It really extends your boating season. Once you know how to use it, this type of weather is not intimidating.

Absolutely and I see your running course up as well.

I grew up on fishing boats using old Furuno radar, the kind that were CRT based and only course up. The targets would fade in and out in the same rotation sweep. The radar screen was a circular crt maybe 10" across. I could never change to north up, if in course up I can instantly know exactly what is what. I have ran my boat in zero visibility many times, not because I chose too but because that's what I ran into while on the water and had to go through it. For me knowing exactly what's in front of me is most important. In bad weather like fog or bad rain I run chart in overlay on one screen and radar only on the other. The radar only is easier to verify taget's verse static objects.

The biggest issue I have run in to is other boats in dense fog not using or don't have radar and running at cruise. In dense fog I run very slow even though I can see what going and if I see a moving target getting close I move. That is a situation where the MARPA and EBL/VRM can really be of use. Even using the guard zone, although that is not my favorite because of the big colored ring on screen, it's too distracting.

We used to run on the edges of shipping channels. Most recreational cruisers hug the coast along with the fisherman. If you cruise the shipping channels you and the ships are about the only traffic you see and it is much less congested.

I think it is a couple of sheets of plywood nailed/screwed over the impact damage of the boat hitting the breakwater. Some rubber mats were applied to cover the plywood but it looks like they have peeled off, and are now hanging down….just a guess.
 
Trying to understand the picture I am seeing, can someone explain?
Exactly. That's why I wasn't going to post the pictures... Nothing really to see other than some splintered fiberglass. The plywood is covering the majority of the damage and when the rugs weren't hanging down, you couldn't see a damn thing.
