It's what you get when you install a mast on a submarine. Could be aground though.

No article.

I took the photo 2 days ago here in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

Have not seen or heard what happen in the local news, hence I put the picture out.

The boat is sitting up against the seawall and we see quite a few of those scenes after hurricanes, but we have not had a good one in 2 years.

We have had thunderstorms and rain, but not enough to wreck a boat like that unless he lost power and could not put up sails and/or get an anchor down in a hurry.

Sad sight..

Anchor dragged, drifted onto rocks, hull smashed...

I have a photo of a cat that ended up like this many tears ago at Airlie Beach (Qld, Aust).

What happened was that his anchor dragged in some strong winds and the boat was blown onto some rocks which destroyed the hulls below the waterline.

From a distance the cat looked intact, but closer inspection showed it to be a writeoff.

We know that cats like to anchor close to shore, and that they are hard to manage if caught by a sudden strong wind.

There has to be some disadvantage to having a cat....
