Re: Sunk At The Dock..

Well Fiveslide I think you may be right. They left last night, that's right last night. They pulled out at 9 o'clock headed down the ICW in the dark. The fuel drums still were not lashed down and they had no chartplotter, only a paper chart. There was no anchor onboard and the captain who was from Florida was not familiar with the area. Not familiar as in asking what side the reds should be on. Amazing....

Back in Annapolis waiting for October!

I been out on some crappy boats. Even been on one that wss restored after sinking. Never one that was on the bottom a few days prior and still soaking wet inside. I guess whomever is off watch is going to sleep on the flybridge?

Perhaps some of our coast guard members could shed some light on this. The coasties where it sunk know his direction, will they call some more down the ditch to get this guy off the water? Maybe even in jail?
