It 'looks' OK, but every time I see a boat get hauled after such a grounding, upon closer inspection it ends up being prop(s), shaft(s), rudder post(s), and strut(s). Often a strut will punch up into the hull, usually partially. This is usually expensive and time-consuming.

That channel is very narrow, but short and really well marked. Also, it's the Bahamas, so that shallow yellow bar sticks out really well in most light conditions. You've really got to be trying to go aground there.

On the bright side, he is only a few hundred yards from a boat yard with a lift.

Late afternoon and early morning heading into the sun, it is real difficult to read water color.

Isn't that the entrance to Cap Sante? And isn't stuck right next to the very large and visible Shallow Water sign?

Yep! And right around the corner the coast guard had to install the channel markers backwards because the average boater couldnít figure out which way the tide went.

Well it could have broke loose or lost power, or any number of reasons for it to be there.
Letís not immediately assume that the captain was an idiot!

I suggest giving yourself an extra 3 feet during a falling tide so your photo doesn't end up in a boating forum.


Running aground on a rising tide is far less embarrassing. You can just pretend you've stopped for a few minutes to check something while you wait for the tide to lift you off. Then just continue your journey (if you have protected prop(s).

Yep, went in with the sun in his eyes, I'll bet. Major no-no in the Bahamas!
