Is anyone willing to come out and help this guy? I will make the 15 hour drive if we can get enough people to make this a success.
I have a 150 lb Danforth to kedge with. If we can get some heavy chain and two long large diameter rodes from another volunteer we could connect both to the Danforth and then use one rode
to kedge and the other rode
tied to a halyard
to list the boat.
At the same time remove as much as possible from the boat to save weight.
Then at high tide winch
and pull like crazy. If we could get a powerboat out there, it could pull sideways on the center of the kedge line. This multiplies the force of the kedge. Even if the power boat
pulls then relaxes, the slack could be taken up by winch
with each cycle.
It might take a few high tides but if it moves a little then it is only a matter of patience and inch by inch. The idea is to put a strong spring/tension on the rodes and let the wave action wiggle the boat in the direction we want it to go.
Anyone willing to help? Anyone know how to contact the owner and where exactly the boat is? Current
status? Is the owner a good guy deserving of a helping hand?
