Similar thing happened on east coast
us a few years ago. Old guy moving his 33' alloy boat down coast from Nova Scotia
. Got in a bit of a blow, CG came out to rescue
him. He got in the basket because he thought something was wrong ashore. Otherwise he was tired but ok. Someone on shore had reported a boat in trouble, he didn't call.
Anyway, boat floated back to Nova Scotia
and beached unharmed, but was completely stripped right away.
Don't know final outcome.
