Yet another yacht lost last night

Yet another yacht lost. Washington Coast last night.

47-foot (motor?) yacht "hit something" off shore. Jeez, from the CG film, it looks like he could have cruised back to the beach in style in that tender, but they air-evacced anyway.

Cool dive boat up for grabs on the beach, somewhere!

Wow...How far off coast? I would think tender riding into shore from even 15-20 plus miles would be okay. Not rough looking.

I just hope we don't start hearing reports of some other vessel, suddenly overdue in the area...

Something is missing in this story, I'm not certain what.

Re: Yet another yacht lost last night

I'm as cynical as the next guy buy you cannot simply assume evil every time. If this guy really had a head injury and was partially disoriented, his asking for rescue and wanting to just go home rather than a hospital seems believable. It would be interesting to learn about his insurance coverage and financial situation but is really not our business. I do know insurance companies pay pretty good money to folks who look for reasons such as fraud to deny claims.

Re: Yet another yacht lost last night

Has anyone checked the charts for the accident area?
Is there a reef or shallow area there?

Nothing in that area. About all I can think of would be a log or shipping container.

If I had the time he aparently did I would have issued a pon pon not a mayday.

Re: Yet another yacht lost last night

Dunno.. had some friends in a wooden motor boat in Spain a few years back.. had lived on it for years.. then one day motoring from Ibiza to Denia something sprung up in the bow and it went down in a couple of minutes.. did not even have time to save their parrot.. an amazing bird.. mimic anything and much loved.
They lost everything..
