My thought is that by holding the owner responsible, and HAVING HIM do the actual removal, as traumatizing as it might be, would send a clear message to everybody that boat ownership is a serious ONGOING responsibility. When things go south, you can't walk away from this responsibility, and you can't give it away on Craigslist.

This boat was pushed ashore after a storm, not a hurricane. For him to not have adequate ground tackle because he couldn't afford it, means that he could not afford the boat. A more responsible thing for him to have done is to realize this, and either sell or give her away while she was still afloat.

If they had taken the electronics off, they cold have sold them and paid for the backhoe for the day. Besides the obvious shame of the lost boat, is all the good parts that are being destroyed. As one who is "saving up" for a chart plotter, I can say that it's a shame.

Regards,
Brad

You know, many of you guys with galvanized chain and a galvanized swivel should check that cotter pin holding the shear pin on the swivel. I checked mine before a recent overnight trip and found the cotter pin had nearly rusted away. I don't know if they use a mild steel pin or galvanized for the stock pin; but it sure was not anything close to the corrosion resistance of a stainless pin.

I still can't understand why this swivel design does not use a threaded pin so you can sieze the pin to the shackle with stainless wire.

I'm new to sailnet and was wondering how everyone would deal with the winter months, when so many boats are pulled.....now I know: everyone loses their minds....or is this the normal state around here? Actually, don't answer that.

It was a boat that broke free from it's anchor and grounded that started this thread.

So you would not want to do something silly like putting a zinc collar on a stainless prop shaft??

My point was that a stainless cotter pin would be better than anything that is prone to rusting so quickly like a mild steel pin or a galvanized steel pin which has had the zinc plating flake off. An anchor arrangement is only as strong as it's weakest link; and the cotter pin is a weak link in a swivel design. I can't understand why these are not made with a threaded pin which can be siezed with wire.

Sunk and trashed and currently littering the environment and posing a serious hazard to local boaters AFAIK.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
