" Our current bill is $26,000 to be removed back from the bar, and about $80,000 for shaft abd prop repairs! Navigation marks are not maintained!"

Sure would like to know what the boat make is and the whole story. They must be some gold plated shafts and props.

I wonder how fast this gold plated vessel was going in a well known hazard spot?

Yikes, too bad they ran aground, but our three boats and three cars didn't cost $80k combined.

And I complained the last time I polished my props to the tune of $2843

We must be talking over 80' of boat probably running 20 knots to cause this.

Anywhere in ICW near an inlet this sort of shoaling happens. I'm right near Masons inlet and it is ankle deep in an area that is within the markers. Running at night you can pile up even while following the markers. Daytime you can read the shoal through the water.
