Anyone Know Who Owns This Beached Boat ???

Hi All,

I got a call last night from my mother who was concerned about a boat anchored off her house in NH.

Apparently this sailboat appeared a few weeks ago, was anchored, and then began dragging her anchor out to sea with the NW winds. When she called me last night she said it kept getting further and further out and nobody in the neighborhood knew who's boat it was.

I said to her, last night, that if it had blown out to sea that it would be coming back in as we had some high winds yesterday blowing onto the shore.

This anchorage in Plaice Cove, NH is OPEN OCEAN. It is where I grew up and any moorings there need to be HUGE. It's also a rocky bottom so anchors generally don't hold there for very long.

The location was Plaice Cove, NH in between Little Boars Head and Big Boars Head.

I got these pics from her this morning and the boat did blow onto the beach last night and looks to be totaled.

If you know who's boat this boat please let me know or notify them directly!

Tie a rope to it and anchor it to a stake on shore and it's yours as salvage.

New keel, new ruder, new rig, some minor paint work, and she'll be good as new!

Why in God's name would somebody do that to a boat?

I see what you mean.
Quick look at google maps shows no cove in Plaice Cove.
Do you guys generally set moorings in unprotected waters?

This owner must have known his boat was in danger? Correct?

The term "cove" seems misapplied here. You're right, it's the Atlantic Ocean, sandy shore, near where I grew up. The only harbors are Newburyport to the south, or Rye and Portsmouth to the north.

Too bad, looks like it was once a nice, and probably fast, boat. Now with no rigging, no rudder, and flooded, she's probably more a liability than some salvor's prize.

One other small point. "Salvage" means to "save". Some people think it means "steal stuff from because no one's looking". I think the Webster's term for that is "looting". More than a few ugly incidents when people say "salvage" when they're just stripping someone else's boat.

I wonder what the story is behind this. Stolen? Insurance fraud? Mere idiocy?

Having been through Katrina, generally fiberglass hulls with some damage and no rig are not worth money. Au contraire, they cost some person, underwriter, or governmental body, some money to remove, and then find a place that will accept a pile of shredded fiberglass as waste.

The CG or marine police should have been contacted to check the boat, given the unusual circumstances. The owner/crew could have been sick, or gotten into trouble coming/going from/to the boat.

Any missing persons reports? Any John Doe drowning victim at the morgue? Any overdue vessel reports in that vicinity?

If not covered by many feet of water there's a documentation or hull number somewhere, usually near the internal part of the keel. Or, state numbers on the bow.

But since it's been a few weeks since this boat showed up, this may not be a personnell casualty. Coast Guard RCC should know if the latter.

It still pains me to see a ship, or a boat (especially sail), die.
