Fog.... What's the big deal???

Wow you never know what you might find on the Maine Craigslist..

I found this just a few minutes ago. She's a 1991 Hunter 30 for $3500.00! Apparently because one guy set out under prepared, and without insurance, in the fog, someone else will get a good deal on a fixer upper!

A $300.00 plotter and a good set of eyeballs would have prevented this..

About 10', CD. Big swings are upwards of 13'+, small one's around 7'-8'.

And just waiting a couple of hours will resolve it.

Heck, you don't even need a $300 plotter -- a simple $100 Handheld GPS and some sense would have prevented it.

Nice balancing act. Don't think I'd want to be standing under it though.

Roughly 10 foot +/- here in Southern Maine but some areas of Maine have tides to 24+ feet Cobscook Bay being one of them.... I've anchored there and it's like learning to ride a bike all over...

Except for the gaping hole at the leading edge of the keel... Sense? Yeah but no one seems to have any common sense left so the $100.00 plotter probably would have put this guy in that same spot... Now that I think of it he probably had a plotter....

Ain't it a full moon tonight ? Someone get me the tide chart.
Never mind I make it about 9 feet at 10 PM, will it float off or be shredded when the tide comes in ?

Instead of "some sense" I'd say "a good paper chart and the ability to plot your position". The problem with an inexpensive handheld GPS is that you really can't rely on them to show you where not to go; there is not enough chart information. The same can hold true for expensive plotters; I know of at least one reef that my Raymarine RL series plotter does not do justice to.



No need for a pre-survey haulout eh Halekai!?! Sea-Trial might be a bit difficult tho!
