Ouch. And that is a mean looking sea.

Obviously conditions were a factor. Any back story yet? Did folks get off okay?

Wow, what a shame. Do you know what happened? Hope she can be pulled off brfore she's damaged beyond repair.

A people that values its privileges above it's principles will soon lose both.

Second time in a week that boat has gone ashore. The owners were not sailing her either time...

I had heard a couple of different stories. There were three young folks (including the son of the owner) doing a delivery from Maryland to Maine. One story was that there was ill-timed napping on watch. The other was that it was an intentional grounding due to problems with the boat (which seems an odd strategy).

No one anchors around there so I would doubt they just dragged anchor, unless they threw the anchor due to distress conditions.

I also heard that there was no insurance and no credit cards on any of the crew members. When they hit the sand it was calm and they still had a chance to get it off. But no one could pay and the salvage (or tow) company wanted money up front. From the picture above, it looks like a lost cause, unfortunately.

She's a steel boat so will take a bit more than other materials before she gives it up to Davy...

It's starting to sound like she is going to be cut up.

What a shame. No insurance, how stoopid of them.

For many older boats, it is hard to get insurance, other than liability.
