That's sad:
Sad that boat's aground;
Sad that it was defaced; and
Sad how poor Brazilian graffiti is.

I wondered that too. Rode is visible in the graffitied pics, but not in the "wash ashore" vid. It`s as if whoever ran the boat was not aboard when it all went south.

Greetings,
Mr. MM. They DID drop the anchor. It was the WRONG one! One of these evidently:

That's why there are 673 posts in the Chesapeake thread.

Three or four guys on board they were probably spending more time looking for Tangas on the beach rather than watching depth and where they were going. Looks like there was a sand bar out where the waves were breaking, maybe they bounced the props on it and were disabled. Nice looking boat, before. The entire port side of the hull seems to have desintegrated.

You could be right, I can`t see a Super Sarca in that lot.
Have we converted this to an anchor thread already?

Could have been a 4 letter word ending with "ing", between "Drop" and "The".

Early on there was a dingy in the water, perhaps they fowled the props with line. looks like the layup on the port side could have been a little beefier.

I saw the anchor down in most of the video of the boat coming into shore.

That's the problem. Anchor out, no scope. the line was going straight down.

Damn scope.

Seems that almost the whole portside of the hull is destroyed,

To progress, we`ll need brand, design and size of the anchor.
