sailhog has a spectacular aura about sailhog has a spectacular aura about
That boat is stuck in my neck of the woods... and I have to say....

There is no way in hell anyone is going to get that boat out of that mud on that tidal river without a combination of massive trash pumps and floats. All of this seat-of-the-pants stuff is a complete and total waste of time and energy. Come in at low tide, wade through the mud, secure the floats, evadcuate the cabin, and somehow keep the water from pouring over the cockpit combings on the rising tide. Even then it may just sit there, stuck in the mud, as they say. I hate be a downer about it, but that's the reality.

Maybe the best thing to do at this point is to go in at low tide with an aceytlene torch, cut the mast and standing rigging so that they're no longer a navigational hazzard, and leave her be.

Does anyone know what eventually happened to this sailboat. Did it get removed or is it still laying on its side in the river.

Bump! Darn good question. My bet is nothing happened but I am a continent away, so just guessing.

Well believe it or not,
IT'S BEEN REMOVED !

I have no idea who paid for it, or exactly what happened.. I have a buddy that was fishing and said he saw some guys in big skiffs come out at low tide and strap a bunch of IBC (1000 liter) containers to the outside and cut the mast and standing rigging off.. when the tide came up they slowly dragged it to a nearby island, and cut her up with sawsalls and chainsaws and stack the pieces on the skiffs..

I didn't see them but sure would have loved to.. I'm pleased it's out of the water though !!
