Re: Coast Guard Helping Sailboat In Distress at Ocean View In Norfolk, VA

Update - they want to destroy his boat if he doesn't get it off the beach in a week.

Man rescued from sailboat during Irene now sits in jail; City warns it will destroy the boat in one week - wtvr

Re: Coast Guard Helping Sailboat In Distress at Ocean View In Norfolk, VA

You would think the city had more important post Irene issues to worry about than a boat on the beach that isn't in any danger of hurting anyone.

Hey drunk guy in our jail .... go move your boat!

Wouldn't that require someone in "officialdom" to make a decision?

This guy is really falling apart now. If this isn't rock bottom, it is somewhere in the neighborhood.

They should patch up the boat and send him on his way - that will probably cost less than the expense of keeping him in jail for the next 20 years. Just make sure he sails south. Lol. Dont want him heading my way

Re: Coast Guard Helping Sailboat In Distress at Ocean View In Norfolk, VA

how can the uscg authoritatively state the hull condition when they are NOT surveyors or trained to be .. the rescue crew is just that. human rescue crew. looks like bailing wire, 200 mph tape and a good shove should get him going the correct direction.....on an ebbing tide....
oh, mebbbe some splash zone....

I don't normally carry any alcohol on board, but if I'd gone through what he did, you can bet I'd have a few beers too.

I don't know him or any of the circumstances, but certainly respect his service, am sorry for his loss, and wish him well.

As they say, "There, but for the grace of God, go I." Wonder what'll be said of me if I ever loose my boat...

Re: Coast Guard Helping Sailboat In Distress at Ocean View In Norfolk, VA

I was anchored just on the other side of the spit and was advised to get out of there, which I did and went to a marina up in the James river and rode the storm out without a hitch. I feel sorry for the guy even if he is a screw up. We have all made mistakes and sometimes a little help goes a long way. I would like to try and organize a rescue party to get this guy off the beach. Any ideas?

Re: Coast Guard Helping Sailboat In Distress at Ocean View In Norfolk, VA

would a heavy crane work? or a heavy fork lift with a truck and trailer, low boy flat bed??

does anyone know who does this and if it could work?

could be a place to start?

psneed--did those come out to look at this boat--i doubt it. the rescue crew saw it. they rescue humans and dont spend a lot of time with the truecondition of the boat.

Re: Coast Guard Helping Sailboat In Distress at Ocean View In Norfolk, VA

The only reason he had "booze on his breath" and went to see his wife was because he didn't have a (f)riggin' HOME to go to anymore! And I agree with Don...I'd have a few beers too! Who would have known and who would have cared if the "system" wasn't so involved? You know...when I was a teenager...they were just starting to change the drinking age from state to state from 18 to 21. I lived in Pa. and it was one of the states to jump on the 21 DOB but Delaware was still legal at 18...so..of course we went to Del. I have friends that are police officers, detectives, juvenile..etc. in Pa. and I remember a discussion (because we were all the same age) about how when we were kids the "cops" would just pour out your beer...but the times, they are a'changin' and so those friends who goofed around as much as I did but became LEO's learned that IF they let a person go even after taking the beer..etc..and sending them on their way home..and that person got in an accident...the family could sue the department for negligence or in the worst case scenario, wrongful death. My point being...sometime's they have to be a* holes because we (and really I don't mean me and you) made it that way! But yeah...I think they should just tell him to "lay off" the booze and get his boat off the beach as soon a possible. Anything to make it all "go away" a lot faster.

I agree and what service did that guy see? that can stuff any man killing ant a kids game ( i dont know if he did ) just let this guy try to get on with his life, he ant perfect but who are you to just keep bagging him?

why dont we just stick to the boat incident he was a D!@# for anchoring there but he is a man and should be given respect.

I don't know do you?

And who is going to pay for the crane and flat bed...again like was said earlier ...at least 10 -15,000 dollars to get the boat off the beach.
