Expensive day in Swanage!

thanks to the easterly today seems a few people have been caught out! Atleast 2 boats have been wrecked up! One's a maxum cuddy thats come in & got stuck on the rocks by the public slipway. Apparently the coastgaurd have dragged it up the slipway out of the water now (without a trailer) so could be a bit messy now!
And the other which ive been told about but not seen is a small sailing boat wedged up the storm drain by the mowlem theatre & now has no mast!

Sounds like neither of the owners for the boats have been found...definatly hope they have insurance!

That's not good. All the experienced boats take cover inside Poole harbour in easterlies. I've got the day of today so may take a drive down along the front......

I was in Swanage the day before and noticed the hire boats on their mornings. They looked really vulnerable. Even on Saturday they were taking small waves over the bow. God knows what it was like on Sunday. It's a real shame to see any boat washed up or sunk after a storm.
