It can't be a blue water... Its windows are too big! And why isn't that guy in the doghouse bailing water?? That yacht isn't sunk yet-- It's just mostly sunk!

They seem intact to me

Funny, always thought these babies were bluewater boats:

It has been a nasty Winter and Spring not only for pleasure boaters but for fishermen too. I don't know how it has been all around but more than 10, probably close to 20 countrymen have already lost their live this year. The sea has been too rough and they need to work to make a living

No matter how sarcastic I get on this forum, some just don't get it. I need a smiley of someone dancing on top of a pin....

Re: Blue Pearl Sinks

Two things are interesting in that photo, first the seas seem relatively calm, and it hasn't sunk. Seems incapable of sinking, seems to have a lot of flotation or did it sink seconds after the photo?

Sorry about that. Some really think that only a cavernous boat without any light is a bluewater boat. I am glad you are not one of those

That is a very odd photo, I agree. As mark pointed out no liferaft or dingy in sight. All seems well, except the boat has already water over the deck!!!

Re: Blue Pearl Sinks

Check out the stern. What is that hanging off the back? And that green thing.

Re: Blue Pearl Sinks

Hard to tell since there's not much above water, but it might be a Cooper 50. If so, definitely a blue water boat.

Re: Blue Pearl Sinks

I think this guy definitely reads CF. He's not going to get the liferaft out till he has to step up to it.(picture simile with pin stuck in foot here)

Yes but I don't think the cliche, says you're to do nothing except watch it sink, you are supposed to bail !!.

Re: Blue Pearl Sinks

He inflated the life raft and dink inside the cabin so the boat wouldn't sink.

Sarcasm has never worked on the internet and it never will... There are reasons for it... But just take it as read that sarcasm doesn't work. Thats why smileys were invented and should be used often.

PS the smiley above shows the intent of my message to you better than no smiley at all. If I had subsituted a different smiley it would have changed the intent of my message markedly.
