Hard to tell if the boat is at ht line from the picture but probably is. Nothing a couple of stout kedges, come-alongs and some shovels can't solve. The news said that they called that they were sinking. I wonder from what? This looks like a case of 0 experience and panic. Too bad the owner got caught in a blow before he had time to learn a little more...ok a lot more. Hope he can get her off the beach. He could probably even give one of the local commercial guys a few bucks to drag him off...it's not like it's an ocean liner.
