    You figure that anchor is the only thing balancing her on that wall?? :)

    I do, I do.

    Many years back, extreme sun glare totally obscured my visibility and I wrecked my boat hitting a channel marker piling. Shit happens. And nobody hurt except my pride.

    We have the same situation here in NJ, Morgan Inlet
    Red side you can see the jetty but the black side goes completely underwater at high tide.
    Saw a ny boater coming that way when we were seining for bait a very long time ago. Tried to wave him away but he thought we were just waving. We cleared that area really quick and watched him go up and on top of the rocks.
    Same damage, props, shafts and struts remopved plus a good sized hole in the bottom
    Locals call it morgan inlet, officially Cheesequake Inlet[​IMG]

    I've been aground but never like that. Always soft groundings so we just waited for the tide to come in.

    That sucks. Evidently the sea wall is hidden at high tide and he was just out of the channel. No worries......each of us will be contributing to his repair through our rates.o_O

    I can’t watch the video at work, did captain run into that, then put the anchor out, OR did he anchor there then the tide went out and left him grounded come sun up? When looking at the image, I thought the former, but comments seem to indicate the latter, at least the damage would be much less than hitting that at planing speeds.

    Brings up an interesting subject for another thread, when to decipher the difference between a "2 handed wave" vs "a single handed wave". I always get nervous when i enter a harbor and people on the shore all stop and stare. Not sure if they're admiring my boat or waiting to see the carnage of us running aground :(
