as you would surmise, blame was spread on the winds. Lots of blame, entry to harbor shoaling, unattentive captain, weather, etc., etc. I don't think the true reason was ever investigated nor discovered.


For days later, bouys were placed inside the attached breakwater to indicate shallow water (12 ft). Why that's relevant, I don't know, the ship went aground outside the attached breakeater.


Good news, after a couple years repairing the vessel (hydraulic action on the keel stuck in sand and high surf), the vessel was put back into operation.
