Not their fault of course for underestimating the weather and not closing hatches---they simply chose an unfortunate name for their new boat:

So, where do we send our money for this one?

These morons should have stuck to playing video games... Boggles the mind, that anyone could make it to almost 30 years old, and still be "unaware the weather could change so quickly"... Not to mention, the forecast here along the Jersey shore was calling for gusts to 40 yesterday and last night...

Anyway, looks like someone else needs another boat - are we all gonna agree to "take the high road", this time? (grin)

A fool and his yacht are soon parted...

Another story for the "Too Stupid/Ignorant for Words" file.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

No kidding, but that's not what the police reported.

They better get that boat off the beach fast....beached boats can suddenly burst into flames.

You beat me to it Joe - Seems boats in that area of the world ending on beaches suffer from unexplained instantaneous combustionitis

Jong Solano better start thinking about a salvage plan and soon.
Funny, none of the guys pictured looks like a 'Jong' - yes, I'd assume that might be an Asian name. Perhaps that was his nickname and his real name is Tony or even John G.
'Solano' - not so Asian sounding.
Figures it is a bunch of young (< 30 yo) city guys who think they are invincible who apparently did not hear or heed the VHF WX channel. The LI Sound is considered protected waters but it can get pretty nasty in gale conditions. Even the NOAA NWS website showed the gale warning.
They are all quite young in the scheme of things and should be able to earn enough money to buy another boat or even pay to salvage the one on the beach at Mattituck.

Funny replies above. Spontaneous combustion!
