Default Charter boat hits Bonner Bridge

Heard the chatter on the radio this morning while out south. Glad no one was hurt too bad.


http://www.witn.com/home/headlines/218367431.html

Nine people were rescued Monday morning after a charter fishing boat hit the Bonner Bridge just before sunrise Monday.

Dare County Emergency Manager Sandy Sanderson says a 58-foot boat collided with one of the support systems for a bridge piling around 6 a.m. Sanderson says there is no damage to the bridge, but the boat is partially submerged. However, Sanderson says the boat is not impacting traffic in the water.

The Coast Guard says nine people on the Sandra D were rescued, three who had minor injuries but refused transport to the hospital.

The Coast Guard says the boat had a five-foot by 10-foot hole in its bow.

The Sandra D's owner intentionally grounded the boat to keep it from sinking, while the NCDOT will inspect the bridge to make sure there was no damage.

The dredge boat was there yesterday afternoon working the area very close to the center span, I wonder if that played in role in the accident?

Very sad sight to see, especially since it sounds like a steering failure that precipitated the crash. Glad everyone was ok, that's the positive.

Well thanks to quick thinking about sand baring the boat it kept it from being a big mess in a already horrible inlet. And second I almost bought that boat.

The boat was the Sandra D. I seems that the boat made a hard left to go through the south span and either the steering "locked" or the outgoing tide "kicked" the boat , or both, and it hit the concrete base inside the fenders on the port side with a huge hole in the port bow....It looks like the Capt tried to make it back to port (?) and made it back 1/2 way back through the "cut" when he was sinking so he backed it onto a bar about 25 yards east of the "cut" channel...and there she sits half sunk..Sea Tow is on the scene with pumps,etc....Not pretty!
Josh, sorry I missed you...No flounder for me today, purchased steamed shrimp for dinner!

Saw you out there dave but couldn't get you on 80. No flounder for us either, but a cobia for my four year old. He was stoked! We'll be out again this week.
