Casino Boat runs aground in Georgia.

Oh dear, The casino ship ran aground at exactly high tide and a falling spring tide too. I'm thinking there's a crew spot opening up real soon.

From my home town too.

UPDATE: Evacuation of casino boat stuck on sandbar off Tybee Island underway | savannahnow.com

BTW, it was not rocks, but a lovely flat sand bar.

Re: Casino Boat runs aground in Georgia.

It's chart plotter (not plural) malfunctioned? Seriously? The skipper better find a better story than that...

They got their money's worth. They went out to gamble and probably expected to loose.

I didn't realize that the captain of the Costa Concordia had gotten a job in Georgia.
