Thanks Tim. My boat is homesick at times.

But the weather in porman's photo is sooo much nicer if you're going to hang out waiting for a tide change.

Yeah, but no air conditioning. Too hot right now in the PNW without the hull in the water to cool the boat down.

I donít know if there was a thread dedicated to it.

The prior owner of my boat found that rock at speed at high tide. He had only owned the boat for a couple months and I think was new to boating in general.

Being a relatively dramatic event, and during the summer boating season, there were lots of photos taken of the boat while it waited for the tide to come in again so it could be taken off the rocks.

The boat was towed to a yard and hauled. There was some minor fiberglass work to repair the bottom but fortunately the running gear wasnít touched. The boat was able to balance there on the rock for about 12 hours.

While the PO didnít tell me about the grounding, North Pacific Yachts owner, Trevor Brice, told me about it before I bought the boat. The PO had called Trevor after it happened and Trevor inspected the boat after the grounding while it was hauled.

Wow, thanks for sharing! At least you know she can handle some serious abuse but I'm sure you never, ever wanna do your own experiment on her. LOL

Youíve got that right. So far, Iíve yet to touch bottom with this boat. Around here, often the bottom is sharp and very hard.

That's a pretty epic demonstration of how tough that hull is. Also, the folks in the picture are a lot more brave than I am standing under her like that!
