Pender Harbour grounding

If Xsbank is around he might fill us in on this one.
It's Bellisima out of Frisco.

Looking at the first video which is an earlier one, showing her more mid channel, I'm speculating they put a green buoy to the wrong side. Maybe at Skardon Islands. Second video shows her drifting by Farrington cove.

SAR quick again.

Goes to show that even professional crews make mistakes.

Too fast or thin hull?

Have to laugh at the rampant speculation on anti-social media via Google.
"Hit a submerged container."
"Depth gauge that is required to beep, failed."

On the other hand, a local reports having seen her dangerously close to rocks in Colburne Passage, near Swartz Bay.

If somebody is in over their head, Pender Harbour was a very fortunate place for this to happen.

I like the little airplane that's tethered topside.

Any updates on the news HW? It looked like the pumps were getting the water out, but where can they haul that thing for repairs? At least they have some good weather. The only seas will be from the ferries and the curious.

Mostly old news now but it seems like they tried to clean the bottom in the approach to Pender Harbour and made it inside before overtaken.

Where will they take her out? Good question. Maybe one or two spots on Vancouver Island, otherwise the Fraser River or Vancouver harbour.

Tad likely knows.

I would be nervous getting towed when the on,y thing keeping me afloat were the pumps.

They will probably inflate bags inside the hull.

That would make sense. What a mess. I feel sorry for the owners. Insurance will cover much of the loss, but think of all the personal items in stern that may have gotten flooded.

According to the news report all persons on board left the scene on a chartered float plane. With exception of the Capt.
Was the owner on board?
If so he can't be to concerned about his boat.

Pretty typical, low drama local event.
Boat hits rock.
Locals to the rescue.
Plywood and rescue tape.
Resume fishing.

If your boat was in peril would you get on a plane and leave it?

Ok, I get the connection. To the question, depends, I guess.

Hard to know. The only person that I know well that has a boat in a similar category would take his family, leave the boat in the hands of the paid captain, and make alternate vacation plans.

I think that depends on who you ask, their involvement in the boat or perhaps the importance of the boat in their life. For some people the boat is just another fun part of life that can be replaced as needed. Some boats are owned by corporations and there is little if any personal involvement by users. It may have been a charter?
I know I'd stick around, but I don't make anything of the fact that these people left...
No?
