Monohulls can do it too!

A lot of us multihullers think that being able to beach our boats is pretty cool. Well the mono guys aren't taking that lying down.......anything we can do.......

LOL…… Life’s a beach! …isn’t it?

(Although what I can't quite figure out is.... if this was a monohull, would the mast be sitting upright?)

Perhaps it was a Tri

No, a tri is so light that it would probably be further up the beach maybe in the picnic area or the parking lot.

Check your local beach. If you see more of these maybe it's the latest work of Christo.

If it was a tri the shrouds would be further out, wouldn't they?

Gawd...thats really sad and not PhotoShopped! Do you suppose there might be some sand between the sheets?

With a little ingenuity he could probably convert it into one of these:

?o.O? !O.O! LQTMS. Love it!

Holy carp!!! Is there really a boat under there??? Or did some one just stick a mast and some boat parts in the sand?. . . Perhaps a deranged, psychotic artist or an anti-monohull protester.

I saw the series of pics awhile back, first a boat on the beach (mono)and then what is above. It was a nice looking boat too. I think it was on some island in the north atlantic (?) , something about plotting a great circle routes waypoints without checking the chart? I don't remember it exactly, I may be wrong, but there is definitely a boat under that sand.

You're right, John. Plotting their course from the US to Europe, they didn't account for Sable Island.
