Brilliant strategy, take a 23-footer up outside along the Florida coast, and leave it anchored 3 miles offshore, intending to return and resume the trip at a later date...

It was reported that the Captain was delivering this vessel from FL to VA, when he was in some rough seas and the engines quit due to water in the fuel.
Water in the fuel, huh? Damn, how could that POSSIBLY happen?

Hell, why don't they just put the fuel vents BELOW the waterline, for chrissakes...

UFB...

Bigger boat... Yup... A bigger boat would have totally missed the reef for sure...

who designs a sailboat with a hollow in the hull just to be able to lift the keel really high?
this thing must have an awful performance under sail...

Re: The things people do..

Uhhh - they're called centerboarders and have been around for a century or two.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

the seaward 46 is not a centerboarder...

"The lifting keel will come up into the hull such that the bulb recesses to half its depth."
from eric sponberg who designed the keel...

When someone sticks twin 56 HP Yanmars in a 46' sailboat, I don't think "performance under sail" is necessarily the Top Priority :-)





To me, the helm seat alone speaks volumes... It says, "I'm a stinkpot, who likes being driven down the ICW with a wireless autopilot remote..." :-))





In fairness, however, I'm guessing the sailing performance in absolutely perfect moderate broad-reaching conditions wouldn't be all that terrible... Although, I'd bet anything the engine(s) were running for this shot... :-)

You could have some fun in the Bahamas with this thing, however, no doubt about it... For $600K, however, I'll take an aluminum French centerboarder, instead...

Re: The things people do..

I love the chair you cannot use it with the boat heeled and it will make impossible to have a stand up position at the wheel. I wonder if that is the demand of some crazy owner of the boat comes standard like that.

The Seaward 46 I saw in Annapolis a few years ago had one, but I've seen pics of others without... I don't think it actually precludes the ability to stand at the helm, more than anything it really messes up the walk-thru transom access...

I imagine most people have little idea how exhausting it would be to actually helm a sailboat from such a chair, however... If you're gonna be steering all day sitting in a pedestal helm seat, do like the truckers do, this kind of wheel is the only way to go...





Seems each year I'm seeing more and more folks with pedestal captain's chairs mounted behind helms, however... You can just make one out in the pic below... It's easy to see, why these guys NEVER see you coming up from astern in a faster boat... :-)
