Well my day really sucked.

Well ive been busy with alot of other stuff and haven't messed with my boat much over the last 2 months. The bulkhead issue was pretty much at the same spot that it was 2 months ago. Ive been anchored out in this nice little creek where i figured the boat was nice and safe. I check on it daily and have been out there once a week, but last night was not a good night for me, or my boat. We had a nasty little squall blow in last night, and im guessing it put my boat up close to the marsh, tide went out and she laid over. If it would have laid to the marsh, it would have been fine, but it went out to the creek.

2 Months ago when i put it there.

As she sits now.

Ive got a salvage plan already. I've got to pick up a 15,000gph gas powered pump in the morning. Im going to use the pump to wash the mud out from under the keel and try to get it up to a point where i can pump the water out and float it again. Then she comes to my house for a major refit.
