Re: Miss Liberty vs the landlubbing haters!

You know what seems odd to me about this, an event like this would usually end up in the newspapers down there. Grounded boats, jail sentences, stripped boats, and the like usually show up in a Google or Dogpile search. But when I do a search on line nothing comes up except the conversations on SailNet.

I assume that the 3" chain is a typo for 3/8" chain. If that is intended as the length of the link, that is approximately the length of 1/2-9/16" chain. The 250 yards (1/7th of a mile of chain), on the other hand, is inexplicable unless the boat was anchored in awefully deep water, as in 100 feet or so, oh wait, there are no 100 foot anchorages on the west coast of Florida..

Jus' say'n,
