It's happened again. Boat meets rock in Prevost

Just happened in the past 15 minutes. A Grand Banks landed on the rocks in Prevost Harbor. Saw him coming in and thought to myself he is going to fast to be entering a anchorage. Probably doing 8 kts. when he hit. I can see what I think is bilge pump water that has been coming out since it happened. The tide was high about 1 1/2 hours ago and is now going out. Not a good thing.

Close. Looks like he may have cut the turn to port on entry a bit soon, rocks there too.

That's not gonna float off to BC.

Wow, maybe someone’s charts are indeed missing this shoal?

Somebody should sacrifice one of their crab pot floats or an empty bleach bottle, tie enough line to account for tides to something heavy they don't care about, and drop it on top of the rocks there

Too bad he wasn't reading the thread about the Northwester. Wouldn't be there now.

In the East, hundreds wander out of the channel every day during the summer months...


Granted the results aren't as onerous, but it goes to show how many boaters out of the pack have it happen to them.

Been in there dozens of times over the years and never a problem but were always very careful and moving slow.

Would be a damn shame if that one sinks too.

Maybe he was glued to the screen saying “right over there was the Nor....”. CRASH.

Actually, I don’t want to tease anyone for running aground, it’s easy enough to do with the least bit of complacency.

I hope he comes out okay. Get him some toilet bowl wax if he needs it. There is time to dingy to Roche and have the hardware store drop them by. Actually, we have some great towboat folks in the area, somebody should get them on scene. It’s not worth the risk not to.

Looks like tonights high tide is about 3' higher than it was this afternoon, so they've got one shot at this. Hope things go smoothly from here on out!

We've got a bunch of those toilet wax rings aboard our boat...just in case.

A continous flow of bilge pump water is certainly not a good sign. Probably indicated a hole somewhere in the hull. Depending on the tide, it doesn't look like that boat will sink, it is firmly on the bottom.

Could conceiveably be "relocated" bilge water. Or maybe one of his water tanks is overflowing due to the list of the boat. (Who a I kidding? there is a hole in the hull)

I wish the owner luck, hope he is fully insured.

Hole in the hull, crack around a smashed shaft strut, something is definitely up. Whether it's fatal or not depends on just how bad the damage is and how they can get it off the rocks.

Pretty sure it's the same as this stuff:

Exactly, except you can get the toilet wax rings almost anywhere and they are dirt cheap. It’s not a structural repair, but if a plank is sprung or a strut bolt torn out, it’s a pretty simple solution.

The tides are going to come back in really quick, we have a big exchange. Starting now, it’s going to rise a foot an hour for the next 8 hours. Now is the time to make any patches when you can stand next to her, free haul out.

Pretty boat, hope they come through it without paying too high of a stupid tax. I’ve contributed my fair share to the stupid tax jar over the years.

Splash Zone is another great product for fixing holes.

Here is the latest.

First of all this is not the same rock. The Northwester hit a rock out side of Prevost Harbor and this boat hit the reef inside of the harbor.

This is a charter boat and was out on charter, four people on board. Tow Boats US have been on scene all day, plugging some potential leaks and preparing to tow it off at 11:00 tonight. It is resting on the starboard stabilizer fin. It will be towed back to Anacortes and hauled out there. Here are more pictures.

Prevost Harbor! Hey look, there are lots of boats in there. Let's take a short cut to get a good anchorage spot. Not.

Toilet bowl rings? Davis Seam Slick has been around since before the expensive stuff and is still cheaper than a dozen toilet bowl rings.

It also works as a substitute for "Butch Wax" for those of you retro hair-do boaters.

Looks like the stabilizer fin may be helping prevent further damage to the running gear and hull. Great pictures, the owner of that boat probably had a really sucky phone call today.

This is one of my go to anchorages and this is rough seeing folks going aground.
