Rug Pulled Out From Under Them

Glacier Bay has been waiting for their new "Pilot Boat" for a while. The builder brought the boat up the inside passage from Seattle. On their last leg from Juneau to Glacier Bay they had to return to Juneau and get hauled out as something wasn't right. It is a 40' displacement catamaran. When hauled they found a carpet wrapped around one prop.

Very smart, "industrial" looking boat - I guess a carpet around the prop would take the edge off performance a smidge.
BTW, great choice of anchor

A few minutes over the side with some goggles might have saved a pile of grief and $$$$

Could have been shipping or yard protection that someone forgot to remove?

You would needed to bring a diver and full wet suit with tank or hookah to do that in those waters.
