Some good stuff being washed up on the beach
Seems they are going to cut it up and dispose of to get it off the beach.
Bet the metal detector crowd will be down there at first light
cheers Dal

What a waste of a nice boat. I don't know why there was no coastguard boat to tow it off.

Just saw them finishing cutting it up and loading it in a dump truck
$250.000.00 boat wrecked and looks as thought the prop got wrapped in kelp and overheated the engine .
They said the rough water had filled her with sand when she rolled and made her too heavy to tow off and so suffered further damage.
Shame, as you said was a beautiful yacht

Can't help but think that one of those heavy things attached to a little chain and some rope would have saved the day... It doesn't even look especially rough or windy...

Stoo - have to agree - nothing that a decent engine on a decent boat shouldnt be able to sort out. It looked pretty deep when the crew jumped off. I wonder if they couldn't get a boat to it/ line on it to tow it off quick enough.

I think definatley a decent 2-4 minute window ( and thats what is on the film) to get a line on the bow & pull it back out into deeper water.
