first of all, orange county register will not allow those intelligent souls with ad blockers to read the article. secondly, any surfline should readily disintigrate a fg boat into tiny bits in shirt order--laq bufadora, mx, surfline has been known to disintigrate solid sailboats in under 45 min. witnessed.
this west coast can be a very difficult coast on boats whose owners have no clue or those that break away elsewhere and progress without human involvement.

I was just hauled out next to the boat that went on the beach in Carlsbad, CA during high wave conditions last month. Since it went up on a sand beach came through with relatively little damage despite spending a few days in the surf. Motion was so violent that the rigging slacked and the mast went above the spreaders and owner broke several ribs from being thrown about, but other than that not much damage. The rudder shaft got tweaked pulling it off the beach and stressed fiberglass inside near the keel on port side but no external signs of distress except some scratches. Lesson here is run aground on sand and boat might live to sail again. Hit rocky shore and most likely toast even in relatively benign conditions.

This is my worst nightmare. One day I’ll be able to sleep soundly at anchor. It may take another 10 years tho🤣
