OOPs... my bad then, apologies to both. We saw the boat at a bit of a distance, a person in the anchorage later told us it was Wild Horses. It was a very similar vessel, similar length, hard dodger, etc. and by the time we walked across the island they'd refloated and moved on.

Anyway happy to hear I was wrong about WH... so the question now is who was it?? Shore tied in Deep Bay, Jedidiah, (too close, obviously) and this would have been on or about August 6th or 7th, not in the last two weeks. And I wouldn't have expected any significant damage, it would have been a gentle landing on the skeg/rudder on a ledge as the tide ran out, the bow was down about a foot with a rising tide at the time we saw whoever it was.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Can't help you there Faster. Can't imagine there are too many boats 63' long that look like WH. WH was in the area at the time so that's probably where the confusion came from.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Bootstripe finalized and now the scaffodling is in place to begin the deck painting. We have a contrasting non skid colors with artfully placed "waterways". I hope thay are artfully placed. More details to obsess over. I like that,

Here is a pic of WH leaving the Rendezvous. Hardly a damaged boat limping home.
She then spent time anchored in front of my house and I was aboard, they are very experienced cruisers and they were not aground in Canada. (There, 3 down and 7 to go...)

Smack,

Bob & I are hoping you and the boys will come out and visit and go for a sail on her sometime.

(4 down and 6 to go until I can have full access. I don't want to just make 6 silly posts, I am looking for actual opportunities to make the posts.)
