Does 'Ouch' Describe this ?

In Dunedin, FL, a 35 foot sailboat hit a restaurant. The joys of anchors breaking loose!

Story here.

When a boat called "Porterhouse" runs into a restaurant you gotta scratch your head ...

Only $1,500 in damage. An ouch, but could have been a lot worse for sure.

The irony is worth $1500. Probably most of the damage was to the boat, so I think the owner deserves a free dinner for the added publicity for the resturant!

1 Porterhouse = $1300
Wine = $200

Crane to lift it onto your plate = PRICELESS.
