The boat was stolen from a harbor in San Diego, taken south and loaded with drugs and illegals. They then sailed up to the beaches off the Washington coast and a 17' run about came out and off loaded the "Cargo". After which a second boat brought out an unconscious fisherman found behind a local bar and left him with the stolen vessel and tender.
At least that's what Tom Clancy said.

Nah, it was a hacker from North Korea :-)

We towed our new (to us) 16'8" Rendova this summer. Piece of cake, never an issue, it's basically a giant fender. And my wife sure loved moving through the San Juans and Gulf Islands at 25 knots and fitting in at dinghy docks.

I plan on towing a 17 foot plus or minus tender behind a 40 footer in the near future.

That alone is not suspicious, but many rescues I participated in raised eyebrows and questions to me about the sinking being a possible insurance job.

Not uncommon when one or more oddities are in the story.

If the vessel was scuttled, a forensic audit will uncover the crime.

Really nice looking Trawler. Under your info it does not list your vessel.
What make and model?

I would think an insurance job would involve a fire to destroy as much evidence as possible, and be much farther off shore.

It's a one-off ferro-cement trawler. Here's a thread I did on it a few years back.

I'll be honest - as much as I love the boat and the "big boat" feel of 34 tons, my petite wife would much prefer something smaller. That's part of why I have the big tender - she enjoys that much more.

Cool rig. 34 tons but what's the LOA?

Now you don't think he?? Supposed it's happened many times before!

LOA 44'6" with trim not including anchor roller (added after, adds maybe 18"). Waterline length 40'6", beam 14'8" (again, with trim), 6' draft, 41.5" x 20.5" rudder, 40x23 RH prop, 3" shaft. There's an 8" wide x 2" thick bronze shoe that runs all the way from the bow to support the rudder - I shudder to think what that might cost today.
