Re: Cat on the rocks

It is traditional with keeled monohull sailing craft to careen the boat on a beach or against a wharf to clean or repair the bottom, alternately exposing one side and then the other on the falling tide.
This is merely an adaptation of that practice adapted for multihulls by an obviously experienced and imaginative outside the box thinking skipper.

Come on, surely someone knows the full story.

From AIS Koola 2 currently anchored in Roebuck Bay, Broome.

Re: Cat on the rocks

Well, many people who can afford a cat can afford a helli, NO? Then it was an easy trick! Or else Adobe Photoshop.

I looked at 11:1 in Lightroom and whilst there are a lot of artifacts around the yacht, the same applies to the rock and the shore in the distance. Looks possibly real to me, but I'm not sure.

Re: Cat on the rocks

Fake photo or not, it does make one think of some rather humorous one liners or photo captions.

Like:
- Who needs anchors?
- I thought the tidal chart was in feet, not meters.
- Grounding? Heck no. I built it here. Just waiting for the tide to rise.
- Oh, so that's what that symbol on the chart means.

Or some Lemons into Lemonade lines:
- Wanted to do a little bottom cleaning anyway.
- Thank goodness! I was feeling a little seasick!
- Well, Fido did have to go anyway.
- Won't have to worry about dragging the anchor tonight!
- Ooh! Starfish!

Apologies if it's real and there was substantial damage or injury. Not wanting to rub salt in any wounds.

Re: Cat on the rocks

It's either photoshopped, or the boat wasn't severely damaged. Apart from seaslug (who would dearly love for the boat to have been destroyed), who really cares?

yes, i'm inclined to believe its real.

I'm trying to determine exactly where the photo was taken.

From the AIS timeline i'm not convinced its north of Broome.

Could be wrong though.Hope so for the owners sake.

The last AIS update is 3 days old. Broome would be the first lift out/repair chance after Cape Keraudren.

With the present evidence i'm thinking possibly Dampier archipelago, or even as far east as Cape Keraudren.

Re: Cat on the rocks

It certainly could be BS. But there are pretty big tides in the Kimberleys. I'm not sharp enough to be able to say one way or the other.

I seem to recall that all lies must contain at least the possibility of being true. Hmmmm.
