Don't know who it is, but I believe that incident took place fairly recently in South Puget Sound.

RE: Well balanced boat

Another reason for having a steel boat with a keel-protected shaft/propeller.*

Notice he didn't have the "presence of mind" to get the ell out of the way if the boat should roll over. Hope it didn't.

Well balanced boat

There was a discussion of this in another thread back in August.

See http://www.trawlerforum.com/index.spark?aBID=115492&p=3&topicID=37852151

Unless it's the same guy and he did it again?* Nah!!!

RE: Well balanced boat

Yah!! Same boat, same back ground so this is a rehash.

Hope no one got hurt. We've seen the results on some groundings and it doesn't take much speed to toss people around and someone get hurt.

Well balanced boat

I have almost has a first hand intimate relation of the third kind with that rock but it was only a passing relationship but a couple of feet.* The depth alarm suddenly came on and scared the heck out of me.* Had to change my pants when we got to the dock.* I learn to zoom down when entering narrow channels as a couple of feet can maker a big difference. *The entrance to Port Ludlow is narrow and the illusion of wide open water.* I try to enter/depart on high tide and with fog many mornings you are running by instruments. *Your favorite is Pleasant harbor further down HoodsCanal about 15 miles but again have to enter at high tide to get over the bar.

La Conner as many fames rocks/bars that boater tend to go a ground as it look like big open water that you can cut across and the channel is very narrow maybe 200 ft and not the deep.* Every year one of the boat magazines publishes the most favorite places to go a ground.* Ludlow and La Conner always make the list.*

The owner is very lucky the boat did not roll over as many of them do.* Each year on one of the local magazine post the top 10 most popular places boater lover to go a ground and Ludlow and La Conner make the list every year.* Foss Tug has a humungous barge that can pick up a 50+ ton boat and set it on its deck.* The Malibu, gorgeous 1930, 75 ft, went a ground a La Conner.* Cut the corner to sharp, no damage until it rolled over.* The owner is invest 1.5 million over the insurance to restore.*

If you are going to the Seattle Boat A float it its moored NW of the show, in our old marina.* The Thea*Foss, 100 ft steel, 1930,*is*down there also tht use to crash through docks.* While at the afloat the Classic wood show is on the SW side of the show.* If you like old classic boats Lake Union is the place with a lot of boating history.*

Sweet old boat!!! About ten years ago, we arrived in Bedwell Harbor (now Poet's Nook) right after the Thea Foss had a minor accident due to an inability to get it out of reverse. I think about half the boats in the marina were damaged, as well half the docks.

RE: Well balanced boat

When we moored on LakeUnion we were expected to keep the Eagle in the same yacht condition as the Thea and Malibu.* We were on the Ocean Alexander dock where million dollar 50 to 100 foot boats were sold. People would walk right passed the Eagle gawk at the mega yachts.* *Foss Tug pulls her ever spring to retro fit/paint and has a full time crew to maintain her.* She is steel rivet which is a lost trade.* *Speaking of riveted, what happen to the young man that bought an old rivet boat on the east coast that was on PMM?* I forgot his name? ***
***
Thea used to be direct drive, which mean the engine had to be shut down, the cam switch over and restarted in reverse.* A couple of extra puff and there was a whole lot of excitement.* The end of the dock was reinforced for when she came in a little hard. They finally fitted her with a transmission and a bow thruster.*****
