This looks easy! My method should have her floating again in a couple days of work!
Okay I'm not really that sure. Just trying to get everyone's attention.
What you need
1) A place to attach a cable on the ground which can hold a few thousand pounds. This can be a big metal stake hammered in to the ground at an angle facing away from the boat, a heavy truck or a distant tree.
2) A long 1/4" steel cable (1/4" has 1300 lb working load - test is much higher) or equally strong rope which can reach from the boat to the place on the ground to secure it. And 4 1/4" steel cable clamps.
3) a 2ft long 4x4 piece of wood with two screws in it next to each other securing a metal bracket to the side in the middle. The cable goes under the bracket which holds the board to the cable.
4) A 10 - 20ft long 4x4 wooden board (or any other long thing which can support over 2000 pounds) with a flat piece on the end to keep it from sinking in to the ground and a groove cut in the top for the cable to go through.
5) A winch Search results for: 'winch'
6) A small boat with mud removing stuff. A water pump to pump the water and mud out, and another pump with a pressure sprayer to loosen up all the mud in the boat, ensure there is plenty of water for the mud to mix with and to spray off the mud which plugs the water intake of the other pump. And of course some shovels and buckets too.
If she can't be floated out:
7) Sillicone tubes and gun.
8) Enough cable to go across the river to secure to the other side, or a boat to tow. This may also be needed if the boat falls over on port side by accident.
Now here starts the fun part.
Loop one end of the cable around the bottom of the mast and secure with two cable clamps and tighten the bolts well. Bring the cable up over the port side and on to land and secure the other end to the winch. Secure the winch to whatever there is that can hold a few thousand pounds -- a tree or truck or stake. You may need to use both cables at the same time to have enough strength. The short 4x4 board is to keep the cable from cutting through the fiberglass on the side. Put the board under the cable up at the edge of the boat and secure it to the cable with a bracket or one of those U shaped nail things. That long 10 - 20 ft post may help to elivate the cable as close to the boat as can be done. Erect the post on land or in the water exactly under the cable so the cable is pushed up in the air. This will direct the direction of pull on the boat so that hopefully it will be pulled up more than sideways so it will lift up more easily and won't want to slide and push itself down further in the mud. Now start the winch. Be careful to not pull the boat so much that she falls over to port. She just needs to be pulled up enough so that no more water and mud gets in and the mud can be cleaned out easily.
With the mud cleaned up and water out with the boat pulled most of the way upright it is time to wait for high tide. At high tide she should stay upright on her own. The she can be towed out or a rope can be run across the river from the bow. Pulling her out from the stern will risk damaging the rudder won't it?
If there is not enough water at high tide for the boat to stay upright enough to keep water out on her own then this gets much harder. With the boat upright using the cable all hatches and any vents need to be closed and plugged. Use the sillicone to seal up the companionway door so no water can get in when she lays on her side with water half way covering the companionway. Now attach the cable to the bow and get ready to pull with the winch on the other side of the river or from a powerful boat. Disconnect the cable holding her upright and start pulling! Hopefully she'll be partially floating.
I can't wait for all the comments about why this won't work! I enjoyed thinking it all up even if it is completely stupid for whatever reason I might soon find out
I'd point out that having multiple identities on this forum is a banning offense... and since he said he has posted multiple times in this thread previously, either he is LYING or HE HAS MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS. The bulk of people with multiple accounts are typically up to no good as we've seen here in the past.
I hate having rules which can't be enforced.
What good does it do to ban someone who admits to having two accounts? All you're doing is punishing someone for being honest. Then they just come back with a 3rd account (and they don't tell anybody that time!). The people who don't say they have multiple accounts are the ones who cause trouble. There's no way to really ever catch people who have multiple accounts unless they are just lazy and do everything from a single Internet connection without trying to hide.
