Bad Things DO Happen

http://www.bclocalnews.com/news/2151...ml?mobile=true

I was working yesterday up in sayward, bc and as I was driving down the mountain I saw a sail boat careened on a sandbar so I drove into town and some folks told me the police rescued the sailor but the boat needs a 14' tide in order to break free.
That weekend we had some huge wind out here.

Is that at Salmon Bay? Right off Kelsey Bay?

There are some nasty currents in that area.
