Suffered Engine failure towards the end of last week and drifted onto the rocks and was then holed. Mayday not heard by CG, was relayed by a tour boat. Crew taken off by a tourist RIB.

RNLI unable to save vessel.

Ugh. I was up in Lake Tahoe last week and they had a bit of wind, 40+ mph, and I saw one ski boat upside down on it's mooring (didn't have phone for picture) and heard there were two more on the beach.

Wonder if the engine was linked to electrical fault, as I suspect the anchor windlass on these things are all power driven?

It's being lifted in the next day or so I believe. Other than to save the mess, surely is a write off.

It does make you think that even if anchor is powered, you could override/lift it from windlass and let it out in an emergency.

I can't imagine there isnt a freespool option, over ride on the windlass to drop the anchor, hauling it back in would be an issue but then that's no worry until help arrives.
