Proof that most sailors aren't thieves, and most thieves aren't sailors.

Just leave your fuel tanks dry, and most thieves won't know how to take it.

A fuel cock will do the same thing. Just put it somewhere the pizza & beer thieves won't think to look. Like the engine room.

Re: Sailboat in the surf near San Francisco

Here's their track, and where they ended up. Both from AIS.

Re: Sailboat in the surf near San Francisco

Utterly amazing it could be so easy to steal such a boat by idiots.
They will have 3 hots and a cot now, probably a step up from where they came from.

Re: Sailboat in the surf near San Francisco

fstbttms, are you on location? It looks like the boat is afloat but hasn't moved. I was wondering if the keel is dug into the sand? She seemed to be rocking back and forth with each wave.

Re: Sailboat in the surf near San Francisco

She's probably set hard aground. Her reported speed was 7.8 knots just before she hit bottom. I doubt those idiots aboard did anything to try to slow her down. Good thing it wasn't high tide when it happened.

Well, it just may be you. All sailors grow ill at the sight of a beautiful boat on the beach.

Parker Diving services has a line on her... Bow is now pointed out to sea, waiting for high tide.

Re: Sailboat in the surf near San Francisco

Here is a link to the live surf cam of Lindamar Beach One of my favorite surf spots because the surf doesn't get very big. She is pointed out to sea now and looks like she has a chance of surviving. Does not look full of water. I would get a boat out there and try to tow her off now b/c it is near high tide. Hopefully she survives the night.

Re: Sailboat in the surf near San Francisco

Parker's boat hasn't got the umph to get her off. Tug on the way. Makes me wonder whether the keel is still there. If so, it's going to be waaaaaay dug in.

One of the surfers on the news tonight complaining that, like, totally, having a sailboat there today totally, like, screwed up the surfing.

Only in California.

Re: Sailboat in the surf near San Francisco

She is rocking back and forth in the surf but not moving forward at all. I imagine if the keel is dug in it will be a bear to get her out of there. They have already missed one high tide.

Re: Sailboat in the surf near San Francisco

Cap'n Pat's map indicates about where the beer ran out

If the keel is intact they could possibly careen her when they pull.

Re: Sailboat in the surf near San Francisco

Now that I think about it that area has a strange bottom. You'll be walking out with your boardand it will be two feet deep and then you'll take another step and it will be four feet deep and the next step you are swimming. Then after 25 yards or so it is only about chest deep. I hope that they are not stuck in that hole b/c it will be very hard to get out.
