Yes I thought it was a First...and yes...it is VERY CLOSE to shore. I've learned since posting the pic, the owners were sailing yesterday (strong 20ish southern wind) and sailed way to close to shore. Everyone who sails Lake Ray Hubbard knows to stay away from that spot. It's only about 6 feet deep when the lake is full. But we ain't full...about 4 feet low right now.

Looks like the topping lift is having a bad day.

At least they got a fender out. That should help.

Evidently, with a proper topping lift and your sail cover removed, you can get quite close to shore ... But only if you remember to raise you fenders!!!
