The boat washed up on shore
Now with hurricane Earl coming near, I'm wondering if she will end up on the shore in our little lake. There's already one sailboat hull on the shore from many years ago that is now a part of someone's bulwark.
Well, it happened. The blue-hulled boat washed up on the same bulwark/jetty as the sailboat from a long time ago. I didn't see it, it happened a week or so ago. Apparently the Coast Guard or Marine Police or someone got it off and now it's tied up at the town dock.
Our boat lies right between where the abandoned boat was anchored and where it ended up. I wonder how close she came to us.
Not sure what will happen now. Apparently they know who the owner is, and had a run-in with him before, but they can't find him. I believe they will auction it but I'm not sure. The town does not have a lot of resources.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
