Cat on the rocks

Just saw this on Sailing Anarchy

» a rock and a hard place | Sailing Anarchy

Quote:
Pic taken by a friend in the north of Western Australia. They were heading from Kununurra to Onslow and came across this family sitting there waiting for someone to come past.
Apparently they chose going through a series of gorges as the right time to start working on canopies and letting the watch take a rest.lesson learnt.

Cheers,
Gav

Re: Cat on the rocks

quite impressive:

I use to see those artistic figures with motorboats. Not bad for a sailing boat

Re: Cat on the rocks

It'd be good to know what kind of cat stands up satisfactorily to those stresses. Hope they were able to refloat it safely on the next tide.

Re: Cat on the rocks

No problem - that'll float right off when the tide comes back in

Photoshop. Look at the headsail sheets and the awnings in the cockpit. Not hanging straight down.

The headsail sheets would be run back through a car on the deck to the cockpit so everything can be done from there. Standard furler setup and looks normal to me. Same with the awnings, they look like they're tied up.

Could still be a photoshop I suppose, but not for those reasons, in my opinion.

Obviously, that is how they are rigged. But to my eye they don't look like they are hanging the way they would if gravity were working on that boat in that attitude.

You could be right, who knows. I'm not invested in it

^^^^

Good eye, Seaslug. I think that is Koala 2 in the pic. Now, all we have to do is find out if it is photo-shopped.

Re: Cat on the rocks

They do have a 10 metre tide there, So its possible to be on the rocks, Next tide it will float off,
If it dont have holes in it,

Through the Gorges, You have an hour window with flat water, Top and bottom of tide flow,
Low tide, I would give it a miss, as there is no water there, the tide goes out a long way leaving mud, rock and sand flats devoid of water,
