Wall got Gotcha

Slightly embarrassing when your cock-up makes international news (saw it on CBC morning news)

Yacht freed from barrier in Oakland Estuary, taken to dock for repairs | abc7news.com

What kind of anchor do you think he dropped?

There are so many ways to screw up in a boat. I remember the first time I saw a wicket dam on the Ohio. We had an experienced captain with us and he was talking about locking down. I didn't see anything up ahead but river. When we got closer, you could see the drop as the river went over the underwater dam. Obviously it's marked on charts, but on the river there is nothing be a few warning buoys marking the dam. If you aren't familiar with an area and aren't paying close attention to the charts, you can get in trouble in a hurry.

Is there such a thing as a forward scanning sonar for pleasure boats?

Yes...there is. I have seen several listings (seems like most were in the PNW) that had FL Sonar installed. My small fishing boat has side scan...so I can see what I just missed.

Well charted and you will also note the warning day beacon just to his starboard.

NOAA chart 18650 - 48 degrees 10 minutes north / 20 degrees 10 minutes west. It's marked on the chart and labelled "Breakwater"

You know this guy paid a pretty penny for the badge/crane used to lift it off.

It's not marked on my Navionics charts on my iPhone. Though of course we all know that it's not supposed to be used for navigation, right?

I was impressed Gotcha made it Svendsens Boatworks under her own power after she was lifted off.

It appears to be a pod drive vessel with contra-rotating props. At least he got stuck before he hit the pods

Forward Looking Sonar works better with deeper water. The shallower the water is, the shorter forward looking range it has.

We have an Interphase FL sonar/depth finder installed on our Californian 34. An older gray scale unit, it supposedly looks ahead, then sweeps down. Frankly, since it is installed at the lower station helm, I don't use it all that much, so really can't report on its effectiveness at cruising speed. Perhaps I should install it on the bridge, as I am fairly consistent at finding the bottom with the bow of the boat as I poke into Chesapeake gunk holes & creeks that somehow turn out to be shallower than indicated on the chart. Main depth finder has got an aft mounted transducer.

Even charts can have typos. It's supposed to be Shallow Water Habitat.

It's always a reverse chine type boat that does these sorts of things. :-)
