A very public grounding

on the other forum I attend this amazing series of images appeared

Bet he couldn't do that again! on Twitpic

Hamble spit this morning at 0800. on Twitpic


This is how to park a yacht and defy gravity on Hamble spit! on Twitpic

It was on a spit just outside the Hamble - britains poshest and busiest yachting centre

one very lucky dude

it just goes to show why I should never own a boat with one keel

at least with a bilge keeler you can put the keelte on, grab the bins and start taking a huge interest in the birds - or start scrubbing so that people will think you did it deliberatly

Hard to believe this was an accidental grounding given how perfectly he hit the ridge....

Re: A very public grounding

yeah, since the keel is designed to hold the boat, and it's a wing (stable enough to hold it port to starboard), am betting there is very little weight on the rudder.

Boy that sure looks precarious up there though. I bet he's hoping for little winds!

Also betting that he hit that at high tide, and he's gonna have to have a higher than high tide to get off that bar!

I gong to say it was staged or photoshop fixed I don't see how a boat can do it that way.
